SEREN Coed has been through a lot – but she is certainly a star.

She is currently at RSPCA Gonsal Farm Equine Welfare and Rehabilitation Centre – waiting patiently for a loving home.

Seren CoedSeren Coed was rescued by the RSPCA from Caernarfon in January and was found with a horrific injury to one of her hind legs.

A concerned member of the public called the RSPCA and inspector Andrew Broadbent was sent to the location. There he found Seren Coed with a serious and painful injury and called for immediate veterinary help.

RSPCA equine rehoming officer for Wales (ERO) Gareth Johnson, said: “This beautiful chestnut cob mare was found abandoned in Caernarfon with a serious leg wound.

“It seemed as though she had been caught up in barbed wire and somehow got free and was left to fend for herself. SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“As we can see from the before and after pictures of her injury, she has shown great improvement thanks to RSPCA care.

“Seren Coed is a real eye catcher and is only three years old and is very easy to handle. She will make approx 13.3HH and due to having a beautiful temperament she will go on to make a wonderful family pony.”

It is believed that there are 4,500 horses identified as being at risk across England and Wales and to help deal with the ongoing crisis, RSPCA is launching an appeal for homes for the horses, ponies and donkeys in its care.

ERO Johnson said: “Sadly we have so many horses in our care that have not had the best start in life, and need good responsible homes.

“We are hoping this appeal will help us rehome many of our horses, ponies and donkeys.
