Rescued Pony

31 May 2015

We have rescued yet another unwanted pony, the country is awash with them!. Up and down the country breeders are unnecessarily putting mares into foal when there is no hope of a future for them unless rescue centres step in. The owner of this pony had hundreds. The breeding had spiralled out of control and […]

Jack and Buttons find a new Home

04 Nov 2012

This weekend we re-homed Jack and Buttons, two Shetland Ponies that were born in April this year and were taken in a few weeks ago. These two little boys are so small, they managed to duck under the fencing and escape from their new home in less than 5 minutes! It didn’t take long to […]

Rescued – Another 2 Wild Dartmoor Ponies Destined for Slaughter

24 Oct 2011

Each year hundreds of Dartmoor ponies are sent for slaughter, either fed to lions and tigers in zoos or turned into pet food. Even though they are rarer than the great giant panda, they are sent to market in their hundreds and sold for only a few pounds, to the only buyers, the meat traders. Each year we work […]

Dartmoor Ponies Rescued in the nick of time!

19 Mar 2011

Today we rescued 3 Dartmoor Ponies that were due to be shot this morning for pet food! Once more we find this sad situation. Yet again many young Dartmoor Ponies are facing slaughter as the unwanted ponies become animal feed. A century ago 30,000 of these ponies roamed the moors, now just 1,500 remain.  They […]
