Education programme for equine owners and handlers

 

Lalitpur, February 2017 –

On February 4th 2017, Our dedicated team went to Chhampi Mai Brick kiln to conduct an awareness/education programme for the equine owners and handlers.

In Chhampi Mai Brick kiln, there are 59 working equines. There are four owners and 19 handlers who are taking care of the equines.

When our team went to collect the details concerning the condition of the equines, the handlers were keen to get involved and provide us with information regarding the equines.  Animal Nepal Program Manager Kapil Kafle briefed the owners and handlers about taking care and the better treatment of the equines. Senior veterinarian of Equine Outreach Programme, Dr. Atish Yadav talked about primary treatment and general  equine health.

Similarly, Dr. Sajana Thapa also gave advice regarding food and nutrition for the hard working equines. Animal Nepal’s para vets Tara Budhathoki, Santosh Gautam and Sijan Pokhrel talked about the importance of the well being of the equines which in turn would lead to more productivity.

Equine owners Kaiyum Shekh and Ajmod Shekh raised important questions related to care of working animals. All the participants: equine handlers/owners were satisfied and looked forward in implementing all the suggestions given to them by our team. They realized that that better treatment and healthier equines would be more beneficial for their work and committed themselves to better care for the equines.  This was followed by a medical checkup for all the sick equines and medication was administered where required. Our team was happy to get a positive response from the handlers and owners.

This is the first camp of this season. We started from a kiln having problem and helping them. More than 1000 equines work in brick factories in Kathmandu Valley, carrying bricks under tough conditions. This season Animal Nepal will be focusing on spreading awareness and educating the kiln owners/handlers on the improved treatment for the equines.
