In December 2019 Holly and her foal Caspar, and their friends Angel and Cracker were a sorry sight indeed. Having been bred for meat, they were booked onto the one-way lorry to Italy along with many others. Thankfully, they were saved from that fate by another sanctuary. They were then spotted by a couple of lovely ladies, Linda Foster-Smith and Helga Habefellner. Linda and Helga asked us if we could help. The place they were in didn’t have enough food and there was no shelter. The mums and their babies were all very hungry and had been standing in torrential rain for weeks.
They all arrived at HeeHaws in January 2020, cold, sore, and hungry. We had got ready a shelter, straw bed, containers full of hay, and fresh water. Now they could look forward to lots of cuddles, brushing, and 3 meals a day!
A few months later, Cracker and Caspar were given a paddock to themselves, giving Angel and Holly a well-earned rest! Holly was sadly in foal again. You can read their updates separately
