Brave Boyd better now

Boyd - before

Boyd – before

A six-year-old pony called Boyd is on the search for a home after intensive rehabiliation at Blue Cross rehoming centre in Rolleston has finally paid off. Boyd was one of a number of horses rescued from a farm in South Wales in April 2011. All were severely underweight and Boyd also had a matted lice infested coat. He had not experienced much contact with people so was very nervous and frightened when he arrived.

Kath Urwin, Blue Cross Centre Manager said: “We have put in a lot of time to help Boyd gain confidence and become the healthy, happy horse he is today. We are delighted that our efforts have developed him into a wonderful horse and hope to see him finally settled in a home of his own soon.“
