Jumble finds a home
An abandoned horse that has been severely deformed since birth has finally found a loving new home after being cared for for the last six years in a rescue centre.
Jumble was rescued by welfare charity, HorseWorld in 2008 after being abandoned along with two other horses. The animals had been removed by bailiffs called in by the owner of the land they were abandoned on. The other two horses found homes quickly but Jumble was left unwanted because of his deformities.
He spent a few years meeting and greeting his many admirers at HorseWorld’s visitor centre but moved to the welfare department after the closure of the visitor centre in February this year.

“We felt Jumble needed to find a home where he could receive lots of one to one attention” said HorseWorld’s Training Manager, Sarah Hollister. “We have so many horses looking for homes, Jumble would often get overlooked because of his unusual shape but he really has a heart of gold.”
He was spotted by Lindsay Wilkins who fell in love with him straight away and decided to offer him a home keeping their horse Izzy company.
“He is just so lovely, such a gentle boy.” Said Lindsay. “He seems to have settled in very well and seems quite happy for Izzy to be the boss! We took him out for a walk up the track yesterday and he loved it, ears pricked and nostrils flared and he was off! Nothing seems to faze him.”
