Little Star was less than six months old when he and his friend Tinsel were dumped at the side of the road. He was very thin and affected by rain scald. When he arrived at Hall Farm, Star had to spend a long time in isolation because he showed signs of carrying a respiratory infection. Happily, he now has the all-clear, Star is looking forward to a bright future.
