€15.00raised of €9,000.00 goal goal
Mike is a Royal Airforce and French Legion veteran, who became homeless 5 years ago, after a friend canceled a project without warning, however, he decided to see this as a chance for adventure rather than a negative situation, as a result, he has lived a nomadic life traveling from camp to camp with his dogs and goats.
He recently has suffered severe injuries from an attack from a local junkie, and many other mishaps(see next paragraph), so the aim is to raise funds to get him healed and to get him a horse that could help him and his animals move away from the toxic environment he is currently in.
Mike's aim is to get on the road with a horse or bull-powered carriage. He almost achieved that last summer after spending two years raising and training Bill, his bull. Mike moved to a farmhouse camp at the beginning of June, that is owned by a pastor/school funder. Something happened shortly after moving when one night Bill somehow got free from his field, attacked Mike, and injured him, almost critically. Sadly Bill had to be put down shortly after. If things had gone planned, Mike could've had enough money to replace Bill for the meat he could've sold. But the meat was stolen from him (approximately 3000 euros worth), by the man who let him stay at the farmhouse camp.
After that even more, unfortunate events unfolded for Mike. A car drove over his foot, he injured his knee, leaving so badly, that it's still severely limiting his ability to move and recently, a local junkie bashed Mike's face with a walking stick, possibly breaking his jaw, just because Mike didn't want to have a drink with him. Since then, Mike has started to really fear for his animals (2 dogs and a couple of goats) and his own safety and wellbeing.
Currently, Mike earns 30 euros per month, so it would take a long time for him to save up to replace Bill with either another bull or horse, and leaving him in such a toxic environment will harm him and his animals even more. This is why he needs to get back on the road, where the possibility of these things happening is much less.
I am trying to help Mike by raising the funds needed, in order to help him get the medical attention he needs and to buy him a horse, that could power his carriage home and get him out of the bad environment he is currenty in.
