Can you give young pony Heath a happy home?02 Apr 2012
Grazing with his friends in the field, Blue Cross pony Heath looks like he doesn’t have a care in the world – but things could have been very different indeed.
Heath’s mum Minnie was rescued when she was pregnant, underweight, infested with lice and worms and suffering from badly overgrown hooves.
She and six other ponies were found running wild in a field next to Heathrow Airport’s Terminal Four. The field was littered with rusting scrap metal and poisonous ragwort and the ponies had been left free to breed.
Luckily Minnie was found and brought to the Blue Cross Burford rehoming centre. Heath was born at the centre soon afterwards which meant we could give him the veterinary care and experienced handling that he needed.
Heath is lucky – he’s grown up knowing nothing but love and care and we’re now looking for an experienced horsey family who can help him continue his education.
