The Quarab horse is a cross between the Arabian thoroughbred and the American Paint Horse or Quarter Horse breed. Quarab horses are particularly persevering, people-oriented, have stable legs and a very pretty face. They also have strong nerves and are particularly willing to work.
Joe suffers from EMS
Animals from all kinds of life situations live on the Gut Aiderbichl farms. Animals also live here that are cherished, cared for and loved by their owners, but who for various reasons can no longer take responsibility for their pets. What happened to Joe?
Last summer, Dieter Ehrengruber received an email with a heartfelt wish from an Aiderbichler. Joe, a Quarab gelding, has been living in a small group of three with two other horses for about 10 years. He suffers from EMS syndrome and needed a sandy yard. It was not possible to build such a place at the open stable she leased. There was also an Arabian mare in the group of three. What was good for her was far from good for Joe and it became increasingly difficult to keep the three horses together. Putting him in another pasture was not possible, because the three were not to be separated.
Despite years of trying to treat the disease with feed restrictions and medication, the EMS symptoms got worse and worse.
Reason had to prevail
…“ The only place where we are sure he will have it good and not end up at the butcher is Gut Aiderbichl. We urge you to save Joe "....
The former owners found it very difficult to part with their horse, but common sense had to prevail. The EMS disease can be congenital and this was also the case with Joe. Efforts were made to feed him according to his illness and to move him a lot. Medication was also administered, but the hoof sprains became more frequent and the insulin resistance also caused problems.
The horse's beauty is impressive. Joe has a noble head, large, sensitive nostrils, a small mouth, shining eyes, small, pointed, slightly curved ears and a full mane.
Joe was brought to Gut Aiderbichl Henndorf. It was a matter of his health and his continued life. The slaughterhouse was out of the question. So Joe became a Gut Aiderbichl horse and he is settling in well in the new group. The keepers have experience with the disease and make sure that Joe is on the "right" pasture and gets the appropriate feed for his disease. b
The grooms at Gut Aiderbichl took Joe's problems "in hand" and we think he is doing well. His eyes are shining and his body is upright and proud. So now he lives on an Aiderbichl outdoor farm and enjoys life with his fellow horses and the love and care of his carers.
An animal-loving couple has accompanied us as Aiderbichlers for a very long time. When Gut Aiderbichl Iffeldorf was taken over and built, they were very close by as neighbours. They themselves cared for three horses with much love and...
