Juliet The Horse

When Juliet arrived at Hopefield she was just skin and bone, riddled with worms and in a terrible state – somebody had even thrown bleach on her which had burnt her skin badly. Her case was one of the most horrific rescues we’ve had experienced at Hopefield. We started intensive treatment immediately, and she slowly got better and learnt to trust people again. Sadly, Juliet’s bad luck didn’t end there, whilst out enjoying a sunny day she caught her eye on a branch and ruptured her eyeball- we rushed her to the vet but the eye couldn’t be saved. She’s now grown into the stunning horse you can see at Hopefield today, and lives with the donkeys as she grew rather fond and protective of them.



When Ned arrived our staff were shocked by his state. After they learnt about Bella, they all put money together to save her too and then a few months later Peggy was born.
Came to Hopefield as her previous owner was rushed into hospital, and could no longer look after her.
