Hi, I'm Rush

Rush came to the sanctuary in 2015. He was handed in by his owner. He had been bought as a Christmas gift for a child but was unwanted by the child. They kept him on the farm but as the years went by he became a nuisance chasing the sheep and the cattle so had been alone for many years in a field. They were going to take him to a horse sale but asked us if we could take him. We couldn’t let him go to a  horse sale as who knows what could have happened to him!? So we agreed to take him.

He had not been handled much and is quite a stroppy little pony who kicks and bites! But he is getting better. He also suffers from the summer skin condition, sweat itch.
