SPONSOR - WASSADU JATTO

Wassadu Jatto

November 29th 2017 - There have been some problems in Southern Senegal and rebels have been putting down land mines on their side of the border. Somehow one managed to get across onto the Gambian side of the border. It may have been carried by water during the rainy season or the man may have inadvertently crossed the border, no one is quite sure how it happened, but a man who was out collecting firewood with his two young sons and his horse and cart, became the innocent victims of this tragedy. All three were killed. A concerned Gambian messaged us about the horse who had stood there with the bodies of his dead family in 45-degree heat for over 30 hours. (People were afraid to approach in case there were other land mines.) We immediately sent a team out and he was collected and bought to the Derek Knottenbelt Veterinary Hospital. We have called him Wassadu Jatto, (Wassadu is where he came from and Jatto means brave or Lion)

He is the kindest and gentlest of horses and always greets his friends. Recently he has changed his career path and has become Training Horse in Chief at our Makasutu Training Centre. Wassadu's family have decided that they would be unable to give him the care that he needs without his master and that he would be better off staying with us so we have purchased him and he officially became the property of The Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust.
