Balla arrived at our SPANA centre in Nouakchott, Mauritania, after being badly cut by a sharp, poorly-crafted bit. Further examination of Balla’s mouth revealed that the owner’s homemade bit had been painfully cutting through the horse’s gum – making it incredibly difficult to eat or drink. Such cuts cause prolonged pain and distress and can eventually result in fatal infections. Balla was also suffering with internal parasites, which was contributing to his weight loss. The horse was beginning to struggle to work, which had devastating consequences for both him and the community that depended on him to carry water barrels across town. Our vet technician worked quickly to treat Balla’s condition, before providing him with a humane bit that would not cause injury.
