Julio and his wife Rosa operate Casa Colonial Munoz.
In addition to being a great host, Julio is a champion for the animals of Trinidad. He has been a great help to the Spanky Project and has created the Diana Project to better the lives of the local horses.
Below is the list from Julio. I have added links to where some of these items can be found.
About items I need for the project:
-wormers, hoof nails, hoof cleaners and hoof knives are always welcome.
- strong adhesive tape. Those used in American movies for tying up the hostage [read as Duct Tape]. According with the books you brought me are very good for hold the broken leg and cover the hooves for some diseases.
-I am learning shoeing so a tool kit will be great.*
-I am learning Monty Roberts method, I would like to have 2 long reins (equals) and a Dually halter (medium size)
- Cream for keep healthy the hooves.
