Elvis the Pony
Worst pony neglect ever seen
Stacey was called to rescue a pony from the side of the A24 near Findon Village early on a sunday morning, a dog walker saw the pony by the side of a busy road. Stacey said "I have never seen such a neglected pony, his backbone was sticking out and he was matted all over, had lice and his whole body was covered in prickly burrs." He was so weak it could only walk very slowly. We wormed him and cut off the worst of the matted fur, removing most of the burrs and prickles from the pony's coat, we had to cut his mane off because it had become so badly matted.He also had badly infected eyes.
The pony has been named Elvis.
We are hearing of more and more abandoned horses, or horses being given away for free because people cannot afford to keep their fields and feed their animals.
Elvis is now recovering at Paws Animal Sanctuary.
After lots of TLC, this is what Elvis looks like now. Elvis now needs to have Tetanus, Flu inoculations and this week he is being Gelded. Its hard to believe he is the same pony we rescued in February.
