This little pony had been left without care for so long, it's hooves had grown too long to walk on...
A group of animals, including several horses, was rescued from a very bad 'sanctuary' in Belgium. Then rescuers found this poor pony...
Among the animals were two horses. They were bony and dirty, and the pen the were kept in was full of manure up to their knees!
The saddest case was that of a shetland pony whose hooves had grown out in long spirals. It hadn't received any help in 10 years, and could barely walk.
Rescuers managed to get the poor animal back to their center and gave it some attention. It was cleaned and it's hooves were cut to a normal size.
The former owner of these animals was charged for cruelty. He is expected to pay large fines, or even go to jail!
