Pony left with horrific neck wound looking for new home after transformation

UK News | Published:

Paddy was discovered neglected and alone in Sprotbrough, Doncaster, when rescued by the RSPCA.

An abandoned pony found alone with a severe neck wound and a rugged coat has had her life changed by rescuers.

Paddy was discovered neglected in Sprotbrough, Doncaster, in January by the RSPCA with a four-inch wound on her neck.

But after nine weeks of care and treatment, her wounds have healed and Paddy, who is currently stabled in the Hull area, is ready to find a new home as St Patrick’s Day approaches.

Equine rehoming officer Jacqueline Wilson said: “Poor Paddy was in a sorry state when she was rescued by our inspector, and brought to us for care.

“Now, this sweet little pony is looking for a new start, and I would like to hear from anyone who is interested in adopting her. We think she would make an ideal companion or potentially family pony when she is old enough to start work.”

The appeal comes as the RSPCA launched their new Homes for Horses campaign to find homes for more than 1,000 horses and ponies in the spring.

Anyone who would like to find out more about adopting or fostering Paddy can call MS Wilson on 07825 158 255 or email her on
