Prince Fluffy Kareem help horses – donkeys and camels in Egypt –
Support and follow them.
Ca fait un moment que je suis leur page sur Facebook et ils font un travail formidable, un exemple parmis d’autres – comme pour cette jument arrivée dans un état pitoyable dans leur asso (voir photo ci-dessous).
Elle n’était pas vouée de par son état à être maman… car souffrant de calcification dans ses pattes avant et d’atrophie musculaire du fait d’avoir été gravement émaciée.
Pour la “Fête des Mères” fêtée aujourd’hui dans certains pays, ils ont reposté la video de la naisssance de son poulain ! Une vraie émotion (dont j’ai pompé la video, j’espere qu’ils ne m’en voudont pas ! :)
Je copie-colle de même leur texte ci-dessous (en anglais) de l’époque où ils l’ont accueilli, expliquant la situation.
When her teats started dripping milk, we realized the vet had been mistaken, and she was actually two months further along than originally assumed. After many days and nights on constant foal watch she gave birth just the night we weren’t intending to stay awake. We were accidentally on the land at night because of a sick foster horse that we were giving IV fluids, and just as we finished up and closed the lights, Na3na3’s water broke. Her foal was called Tayyar (which translates roughly to “someone who flies”), and after he was born I had post-natal depression for weeks. I hadn’t wanted a foal, and I felt overwhelmed with guilt and responsibility for a new life. I didn’t touch him and didn’t cuddle him. However, he grew on me slowly by being the kindest and gentlest foal ever. All the others are really cheeky, but Tayyar is the perfect gentleman and only wants to be brushed or cuddled. Before he was born, people were telling me Na3na3 would be happy to be a mum, and I thought “what a load of sentimental crap – that’s just instincts”. But I have to say, I really do believe she is enjoying motherhood. She is a people’s horse, and doesn’t like any other horses so she was always a bit lonely. She loves all the extra attention that comes with having a foal, loves to be with her son, and she has even taken on our two rescue foals Weeble and Blossom – they are the only ones allowed to eat with her. She looks like she has triplets when they are all going around in a herd So happy, happy Mother’s Day to all of you two-legged and four-legged mothers!
Every day we receive messages from people all over the world asking “How can I help?” , for which we are endlessly grateful. Our basic monthly expenses for wages for Sherif and the stableworkers, stable rent, feed and medications are currently approximately $2500, this is in addition to the new land rent of $1500 a month and the medication for the horses that attend the PFK clinics. We rely mostly on donations and would never be able to do what we do without our amazing supporters.

We get many messages from followers who would like to send us used tack. Due to the very unreliable Egyptian postal system as well as customs wanting taxes and bribes, it is not possible to post items directly to us in Egypt. To ensure delivery all items must be couriered in by someone visiting Cairo, usually Marte from Norway or Emma from England. Due to limited luggage allowance we prioritise wound treatment products, wormers, fluffy nosebands and girth covers. If you would like to send something, please send us a message to get the address.
Other things you can do to help:
– Spread the word! Share our Facebook page and our website. The more awareness for the cause, the better.
– Hold a fundraiser for Team Kareem! Many of our supporters have held cake stalls, auctioned off used tack or their own drawings and paintings, and one eager fluffeteer even held a Breakfast Barbeque Fundraiser in his office!
Thank you to everyone for joining, for reading, for commenting, for sharing the page, for fundraising, for donating, we could never have done this without you!
