Rare Breeds Survival Trust
The RBST needs to raise over £700,000 a year to fund their wonderful conservation work with the UK’s rare native breeds of farm animals and poultry. The work of the RBST in conserving rare native breeds benefits everyone in the country as a rich agricultural heritage and the native breeds which have such a strong history could play a crucial role in future landscape management and food security. The RBST Watchlist is produced annually and highlights any changes in breed population trends. The Clydesdale breed, of which Ted is a magnificent example, is on the RBST Vulnerable list for equine breeds. Through their immense dedication and larger than life personalities, Sally and Ted have worked tirelessly to raise the profile of the RBST and their fantastic work in preserving rare breed livestock.
