Candy arrived at the sanctuary recently after her owners suffered a family bereavement.
When Candy first arrived at the sanctuary, she was struggling to gain any weight. You can see her dipped back, which has been caused by her past as a broodmare and being overbred before she joined the family. In just over a week, Candy now loves her food and will not lift her head out of the bucket for anything. We are very happy to see she has gained so much weight in such a short space of time.
She will eventually be introduced to our other horses and a larger environment. The team have been keeping a close eye on her to make sure she is settling in okay, as well as feeling loved and safe.
