In 2016 we were part of a multi-agency team who rescued a herd of over 160 abandoned ponies on Bodmin Moor. Some required urgent veterinary care and there were concerns for others that they wouldn’t survive the winter months.
One of the herd was Phantom, a beautiful foal who was born in a circumstance of abandonment – he had never known human interaction before.
He arrived at Bransby Horses as a young colt with serious health conditions and limited chances of survival. Our teams, who were part of the Bodmin Moor rescue and looked after Phantom, give their accounts of his condition and rehabilitation below.
