It was his first trip to the national showing event.
The rescuer described Frodo as “looking little different to a carcass” when he was found in October 2014. He was hidden from view in the pile of hay. The owners of the horse could not be found, and the RSPCA and police coordinated his rescue by the World Horse Welfare charity.
To see the majestic horse today, one would never suspect that he was once abandoned to die and unable to stand up.
The black and white foal was rescued in Cheshire, UK after a caller alerted the World Horse Welfare charity. He was taken to Penny Farm in Blackpool, where rescuers began the long process of recovery.
Frodo had to be rehydrated with a drip, treated for a heavy burden of lice and worms and lifted to his feet by his caretakers. They nursed him back to health with round-the-clock veterinary care, and before long, he was thriving.
