Woody arrived at the charity in 2014 as an RSPCA intake, he arrived very underweight and in pain from ulcers in his mouth. Poor Woody’s teeth were so overgrown and despite being malnourished it was clear he struggled to eat. The discomfort from ulcers meant he struggled to eat grass or hay without it hurting. Following on from his ordeal Woody is now fearful of the vet, worming or the dentist, the teams work hard and spend many hours earning his trust again.
He is a large handsome thoroughbred cross who happily enjoys his time with his best herd friends, Dessie and Drifter – the three are rarely far apart. He is partial to a bit of classical music when having his handling work and hooves painted (they can sometimes get a little dry, so need ongoing treatment) however he would much rather his friends didn’t know too much about this soft side.
