The area was strewn with rubbish , she had no shelter from the weather and no decent grazing. Her owner had not been seen for at least five days, seemingly had left the area - and abandoned Millie.

Millie was removed under the Control of Horses Act 2015. With the help from our amazing contacts , we were able immediately to get her to a place of safety . We arranged for a veterinary assessment, worming, de-lousing. Fortunately (and unusually) she wasn't in foal.

Millie's teeth needed attending to. Because of her anxiety and nervousness we arranged for this to be performed under sedation at Langford Equine Centre.

Millie was successfully re-homed, and is now living happily with a family. She's not alone any more, much loved and with other equines for company.

Tethered, and left behind...

Millie's story.

Millie's a 2 year old Shetland mare.


We received an urgent call in April 2018 from Police asking us to help with a Shetland that had been tethered and abandoned near an industrial estate, with no access to water. The tether was just a piece of rope tied around her neck Over time this had tightened to such a point it left rope marks.
