The charities that rehabilitated the horses, ponies and donkeys taken from Spindle Farm, Amersham, have mounted separate appeals to recoup some of their £1.2million costs.
Since then approximately £1,232,000 has been spent on them by four charities.
The future of the horses will be decided after James Gray and his family are sentenced on 12 June.
