Tried books etc on my own, which is fine for everyday stuff, but I have to deal with plumbers, electricians etc and need to master more explicint language specially as they don't seem to have alot of words we use in England e.g. very difficult to explain 5mm chipboard to the builder, it's called OBE here I think.

Look forward to seeing your horse pics on FB, take care S !!
Thanks hon, the direct link to the course is:
Learn to speak Italian like a Rocket with Rocket Italian Premium

Speak soon on FB,
Lucie

Hi Lucie,
I also live in Tuscany and would like to offer a home to a small horse or pony, we currently have two falabellas. However I'm finding the website quite difficult to follow, I don't think my Italian is quite up to it : ).
Where are they based? and How does it work and do they have more horses than those that are online.
Any information you have I would be gratefull
Thanks Tracy

Hi Tracy, it would be great if you could give a pony or horse a loving home. The horses are generally all up on the site (APPELLI CAVALLI | ALTURE.NET), although it is always worth asking if they know of others at that time - they do speak some English if you make an enquiry through the site and say what you are looking for. The horses on the site are up for adoption. The procedure is that someone would come to visit your home (could even be me, depends where in Tuscany you live) to check that you can offer good care to the prospective horse or pony. Then you would need to fill in the adoption form which basically prohibits you from using the horse for breeding, commercial purposes, competitions etc. Can't remember exactly what it says now but I think you can download it on the site somewhere to check it. The horse or pony would then be brought to you - you do not pay for the horse but you may well have to pay for transport to get it to you. This is because the site is run by individuals and relies solely on donations so they don't have any spare funds... The horse or pony would always remain the property of Alture (to prevent it being sold for slaughter) but in all other respects it is yours and you would be responsible for its maintenance, food, vet bills etc.

The site is based in Piedmont but offers horses in need all over the country, it is not a rescue centre in itself.

Another source of "free" horses (no such thing as a free horse, as I'm sure you know they can be pretty expensive to keep) is here:
APPELLI CAVALLI | ALTURE.NET

Let me know if I can help further.

Kind regards,
Lucie
