ew Year Wishes

Let's make some positive changes in 2014

Well, it has been a very busy and, at times, pretty stressful few months. A good friend of mine always says that you should try and view stress more as ‘stimulation’ but we all know that that can be easier said than done! Finally, for me, work has settled down a little bit and I feel like I can breathe a small sigh of relief and start to look forward to Christmas, which I have always loved.

 

2013 had quite a few highlights for me. I managed to raise nearly £6000 for the Animal Welfare Foundation by doing my sponsored swim and, as always, loved being involved with the charity for another year. I had the opportunity to speak about equine welfare at this year’s London Vet Show in the BVA contentious issues stream. Probably the most ‘stimulating’ thing I did this year but a good debate!

 

So what about 2014? All things animal welfare seem to take forever to improve and sometimes the increments can seem impossibly slow but we have to keep trying don’t we? So here are a few of my New Year wishes for 2014. What will yours be??

  • Seaworld and all establishments using captive marine mammals for entertainment will be closed. For good. The animals will be rehabilitated and released where possible and kept in large sea enclosures where not possible.
  • The FEI will re-introduce the checking of a 2-finger width gap under all the nosebands of competition horses. The ISES taper gauge is an easy, non-subjective way to do this and the welfare of thousands of horses will improve overnight.
  • The BHA will follow the 30 year example set by Norway and ban the use of the whip except for genuine safety reasons in British horseracing. The welfare of thousands of horses will improve overnight.
  • The secondary legislation regarding tail-docking will be reviewed and re-written to cement a total ban on all non-therapeutic docking, just as Scotland did. The unnecessary mutilation of thousands of dogs will be prevented overnight.
  • The ridiculous talk of a repeal of the hunting act will stop. It is pure folly to even entertain it.
  • Pet shops will stop selling sociable animals like rabbits and guinea pigs on their own and minimum hutch sizes which are actually appropriate will be introduced.
  • The human psychological need to have wild animals as pets will disappear and the growing tide of poorly cared for exotic animals will finally stop.
  • Oh, and of course, world peace.

Well, I can hope can’t I? I sincerely hope you all have a wonderful, healthy and happy Christmas and New Year for all the animals and people in your lives. And now, back to the rest of that list...
