A donation of Equiwrap from Robinson Animal Healthcare will help staff at the Bransby Home of Rest for Horses care for their animals during the coming winter months.

Robinson Animal Healthcare has donated more than 250 rolls of Equiwrap — a powerful self-adhesive bandage — to the Lincolnshire charity.

“The Equiwrap will be extremely useful over the winter as foot infections and skin ailments such as mud fever are more common,” said education officer Verity Chappell at the Bransby Home of Rest for Horses, which is currently caring 270 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules.

She added: “We are really grateful for the kind donation.”

Equiwrap is made from lightweight crepe, making it easy to tear. Lightweight and cohesive, it shapes to the awkward contours of a horse’s leg providing support, protection and holding dressings in place.

Byron Lawton of Robinson Animal Healthcare said: “Bransby’s work is fantastic, and we hope our donation will help.”
