When Buggy came into our care in May 2016 he was in an awful state. Not only was he suffering from terrible maggot-infested wounds, but he was also extremely underweight and desperately in need of veterinary attention.
When World Horse Welfare Field Officer Sarah Tucker reached him she couldn’t believe the severity of his condition, describing it as ‘one of the most horrific cases of neglect’ that she’d seen in her time with the charity.
Thanks to your support, Buggy is now completely unrecognisable from the weak, dejected little foal he was less than two years ago. He’s now a shining example of a strong, healthy youngster and is living his life to the full!
This summer, Buggy was crowned Rescue Pony Champion 2017 at national showing event, Equifest, where he wowed the judges with his amazing transformation and stole the hearts of everyone watching.
Buggy’s story represents the many hundreds of horses and ponies who come into our care every year and who are now able to enjoy the love and attention they deserve.
Together, we can give many more horses and ponies just like Buggy a second chance this Christmas.
