Why we need your help

Fern had been neglected for weeks

When we found her in March 2015, Fern clearly hadn’t been cared for properly for weeks. After a report to our Welfare Line Field Officer Rachel Andrews visited the site, where she discovered that Fern was very underweight under her thick coat and her long mane was extremely matted.

Fern and another pony, Fraggle, were clearly suffering and so they were removed, pending prosecution, to our Penny Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre. In the team’s dedicated care Fern slowly began to get stronger. As she recovered, Fern proved to be a sweet-tempered mare with a lovely nature, making her a perfect companion pony when she was ready to be rehomed.

Rachel says:

Thankfully a member of the public cared enough to call our Welfare Line to report Fern’s condition to us, which meant that we discovered her suffering and were able to rescue her and turn her life around. Given the state she was in when we found her, it’s wonderful to see rescued ponies like Fern happy, healthy and ready to be rehomed.

Our Welfare Line receives thousands of calls each year from people concerned about horses.

We rely on caring people like you to donate £3 a month to ensure a kinder future for horses and ponies.

It touches my heart with such amazing work you do you such a magical, spiritual animal. It upsets me greatly how animals are treated with such disrespect and disregard. They are sentient beings with thoughts and feelings. Thank you for being there for those that need it the most
