New home for aban­doned Johnny

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Sleeping Rough -

On a hap­pier note, an aban­doned horse that was taken in by the Re­treat An­i­mal Res­cue, in High Halden, two years ago has been re­homed.

In 2016, three foals – known by the Re­treat as JLS – were found aban­doned in the car park of the Ash­ford John Lewis at Home store. They were be­lieved to have been six months old.

They were taken in by the an­i­mal sanc­tu­ary to be cared for un­til they were back in good health and found per­ma­nent homes. One of the trio, Johnny, was picked up by his new own­ers last week.

Fred­er­icka Durham from the Re­treat said: “It was pour­ing down with rain on the day his new own­ers came, but even so days like that are so worth it.

“When we picked him up he was this scared lit­tle foal.

“The team have worked so hard for the past two years be­cause th­ese an­i­mals are bro­ken so we have to put them back to­gether again.

“Even though it’s sad to see him go, we’re just happy he’s got a new home.”
