Jessie came to the sanctuary as she was about to be put down after having suffered months of painful treatment for a leg injury and having been kept cooped up in a stable all that time.

The vet was not prepared to put her down and asked me to take her. The vet actually experienced a great deal of abuse from Jessie’s farrier and the livery yard manager amongst others who said that she was too dangerous to live! I have NEVER had ANY problems from her although one day her old ‘owners’ came to visit her once and she was very aggressive towards her which was amazing to see and has only ever happened that once. Make of that what you will!
