Hope given early Christmas present

Posted on | 0 Responses

Equine insurance customers could be heartened to hear that a two-year-old Shire Filly named Hope has been given an early Christmas present after being rescued from the brink of death by horse owner and vet Vikki Fowler.

Ms Fowler was called to a mud-filled field where the animal was laying and slowly dying of starvation, exhaustion and cold. Renamed Hope, the horse was so weak she couldn't stand up, the Lancashire Evening Post reports.

Ms Fowler was certain she was going to have to put the stricken horse down but thankfully came to a deal with the filly's owner to buy her and had her rushed to her stable in Farington Moss where staff have been nursing back to strength.

"After we had got her up using a crane she wobbled onto her feet and we offered her some hay and grass and she nibbled. She wanted to live,” Ms Fowler added.

In October, firefighters were called to rescue a horse that had become stuck in bog at a farm in Urmston, Greater Manchester.
