Buttercup Christmas


Buttercup, a young Welsh pony, was rescued on Easter Sunday after being brutally attacked by dogs.  Her owner was not able to tend to her extensive wounds which required cleaning several times a day, as well as, several courses of antibiotics. She was near death when we picked her up.  It took months of individualized care for Buttercup to fully recover.  Now, she is “in charge” of her herd, consisting of 7 large horses at her forever home.

The photo of Buttercup that has been on the website depicting her wounds has been updated.  This is Buttercup this past Christmas.  Her owners enjoy dressing her up as much as she enjoys eating.  Her nickname is Butterball!
