Jingles is still searching for his forever home - but until he finds it, he’s loving life with his foster mum.
Little Jingles was found collapsed in a field in Kent in December 2015 on the brink of death.
He was emaciated, starving and riddled with worms and lice and was so weak he couldn’t get up.
Thankfully, a woman tending her own horses spotted him and called the RSPCA. Jingles spent his first Christmas receiving round-the-clock care from RSPCA staff who patiently nursed him back to health.
Now, two years later, the gelding’s future is looking bright. Jingles, thought to be around two, is now living with his foster mum, Julie Kirkbright in Romsley, Birmingham, along with his foster friend Bruno and her Julie's two horses, Cai and Spice.
Julie said: “We took him on in August with another pony, Bruno, who was rescued from a canal.
“It’s lovely having them, I’m loving it! Cai and Spice are quite laid back so it’s a calm place for Jingles and Bruno to grow and learn. It’s fun having the youngsters, we are learning a lot!”
While Julie has fostered Jingles, he's still on the lookout for his forever home.
