WITCHFORD-based business Maxavita has stepped in to offer its support to the owner of Littleport's miracle twin foals.
Maxavita, who won the Retailer of the Year Award at this year's Ely Standard Business Awards, has contacted Yvonne Bartram with some complementary supplements for one of the foals called Fell who was born with malformed front legs as the result of being squashed in the womb. The foals defied odds of 10,000 - 1 when they both survived birth six weeks ago.
Yvonne "Fell has a problem with the ossification of his bones, which puts him at a high risk of juvenile arthritis. I have used Maxavita products in the past to help keep my showjumpers' joints supple so naturally thought of them to help with Fell's condition."
Maxavita's products contain a unique Green Lipped Mussel extract which has been proven effective in treating joint stiffness associated with arthritis.

Neil Hammill, marketing manager for Maxavita commented: "When Yvonne contacted us about Fell we were delighted to help. Yvonne is a valued customer and we are proud to support her and the foals in any way we can."
Yvonne is appealing to the public to help raise �1800 for corrective boots to straighten Fell's front legs. If she manages to raise the amount, she will donate the boots to Newmarket Equine Hospital when Fell is better, enabling other foals to benefit from them.

The special corrective boots cost �900 each and are crucial if Fell is to survive into adulthood.
"Fell is still a little too small to fit the boots yet because at six weeks old he is still smaller than a new born single foal. We have to wait for him to grow a bit first before we can put them on him.
"He has had two weeks of braces made of guttering and bandages which have helped, but these have been removed until the boots can be fitted, and to allow his tendons and ligaments to strengthen up", she said.
