Rescues! 2 stallions and a colt

Today we hav aquired 2 stallions and a colt. They had been abandond in a field close to where i live. The RSPCA were due to take them and have them put down. We have a black mini cob stallion we think he is about 10ish, a skewbald colt about 5 months and a mini shetland stallion (he looks about 8 - could b wrong).
The shetland has good weight however does have ALOT of war wounds. He also has a strange look back foot.
The 5 month old colt looks full of worms and is very afraid of people. feet arnt terrible either
The black stallion have a lovely temperment, does need some weight on and tiding up. His feet are going to need a farrier sooner rather than later.

Here are a couple of picture of the black stallion and the colt.



We have managed to get them all settled in and have found new homes for the colt and the mini shetland. The Balck mini cob will be staying with us and is now called Wilf!

I will keep you all posted on him.

Poor dears! Many blessings to you for taking them in, I'm sure that they'll give you many years of companionship and love for doing such a kind thing!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
