‘Death Queue’ Ponies On The Mend

Redwings Horse Sanctuary – which still has 63 horses, ponies and donkeys in its care from the infamous Amersham rescue in January 2008 – was recently part of another rescue involving dead and ‘queuing to die’ horses from Caerphilly in Wales. 

26 ponies arrived in Norfolk on Thursday 21st February. Today the charity reports that the ponies are doing well but also wants to thank the public for its donations. Redwings’ Head of Welfare and Veterinary Surgeon Nic de Brauwere explains: “The ponies were extremely weak and malnourished in varying stages of emaciation. We have to treat their condition carefully, with managed levels of feed, plus we have had to treat their physical conditions such as lice etc. They have turned a corner and we can see their moods improving daily, which makes it all worthwhile.”
