This week, we’d like to introduce you to Juliet the horse.

When she arrived at the sanctuary, she was skin and bone, riddled with worms, and in a terrible state.

Somebody had even thrown bleach over her, which burnt her skin badly. This was one of the most horrific rescues we’ve had at Hopefield. We started intensive treatment and she slowly got better, and has now grown into the stunning horse you can see at the sanctuary today.

Sadly Juliet’s bad luck didn’t end there - whilst out enjoying a sunny day, she caught her eye on a branch and ruptured her eyeball. She was rushed to the vets but unfortunately her eye could not be saved.

She has fully recovered, since and is loving life at the sanctuary.
