This beautiful horse was a shadow of what she should have been. She was emaciated, her ribs, backbone and hip bones could clearly be seen even under her woolly coat. She had no muscle tone, caused by deprivation of movement due to having spent her entire life tethered, unable to move far, seek shelter or find food. Like Grace, vets believe she was deliberately blinded by her owners.
Holly was rescued by Carmarthen council as she was frequently found loose on the highway. She was seized under the Control of Horses Order but was then placed in a barn with other horses who bullied her off food as she could not see or respond correctly to them. Her situation was dire.
We immediately made arrangements to take her in and found that, to add to her problems, she was also in foal. Many months of careful feeding, nursing and veterinary care followed and she produced her beautiful foal Bracken. Holly is now restored to health, a beautiful very gentle mare.
