Sanctuary found for horses abandoned in Cosmeston
A NUMBER of the horses abandoned at Cosmeston last year during a period of flygrazing which plagued the area have found sanctuary – to the delight of one of the locals who campaigned for their welfare.
Sully resident Vie Britton said how lovely it was to see the animals so well cared for at the Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Norwich.
A regular donator to the sanctuary Vie said she was overjoyed to see a number of the horses pictured on the back of a leaflet sent to her recently.
Vie said: “So many people were concerned for their welfare at the time, it’s lovely to see that they are being treated so beautifully.”
Well groomed, each of the horses have been given names - they include Diego, Santa, Chico and Queenie.
In total more than 100 horses from Wales have been homed at the sanctuary in the last year alone.
They are joined by hundreds more from around the UK.
It means hay has become the biggest expense for the sanctuary.
Vie urged people to donate toward the vital feed.
“If people would be willing to contribute that would be marvellous,” she added.
