Braveheart: the story behind the sculpture

Shetland Pony Braveheart was found living in very unsuitable conditions in a neglected state. He thrived in the care of the team at our Belwade Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre and came to really enjoy having a groom and going for walks in hand. Braveheart has been successfully rehomed and his design shows his plucky and courageous nature.

The design inspired by Braveheart's story
