“We got a Facebook message about a poor little foal in Ballyfermot, it had been left all day abandoned in a horse box, no reg on the box.Locals called the authorities but because it was after 5pm an answering machine was all they could get. He was finally freed from the box, he was completely deformed from his rib cage to his two back legs. He dragged himself around using his front legs. Totally Heartbreaking…Vet made the decision to put the little guy asleep. He wouldn’t have had a chance and she felt that he was suffering.”
This is Bella.

“This gorgeous girl was also tended to by My Lovely Horse Rescue this week and was clearly subjected to some absolutely sickening torture (possibly used as bait for dog fights?), and was found standing over her stillborn foal. When will horses stop being regarded as kicking posts?! Some seriously strict licensing laws need to be introduced. I grew up on a horse ranch in the US and seen some impatient horse-handling, but never have I seen horses killed, abandoned and mistreated like here in Ireland. I don’t know why this is tolerated.”
