Heidi

2016 | Skewbald | Gypsy Cob | Under 13.2hh

Heidi is now in excellent condition, perhaps even a little too portly but still needs time and therapy as her skin is extremely sensitive, especially at the site of old wounds.

She will be with us until we are confident that she is ready for a new home.

The story so far...

A call from a member of the public to the RSPCA, led to a BHS volunteer making a visit to an East Durham building site in April 2018. The volunteer was horrified at what she first thought was a dead horse amongst the mud and rubbish.

Moments later however, the horse was seen to be breathing and the shocked volunteer quickly made a call for assistance.

Heidi’s story has been captured on video

We have rarely seen such a serious case of neglect and despite many setbacks during the recovery process, Heidi always showed a brave, fighting spirit. We believe this spirit was central to her remarkable recovery.
