Buster — a Shetland pony who was found tied to bus stop in Bristol last year — is looking for a new home.

The 34-in grey Shetland was rescued by equine charity HorseWorld last October. He was found abandoned at a bus stop in Bristol’s city centre.

”When we arrived, Buster was being tormented by children,” said HorseWorld’s Joanne Vaughan.

“We untied him, loaded him up and brought him back to our welfare department where he was given a full veterinary MOT including castration, vaccinations, worming, hoof trimming and dentistry.

And now, after completing a full rehab programme Buster is ready to be rehomed.

“Buster is good to handle (though may nip a little bit!) and good with the vet and farrier,” added Ms Vaughan.

“He likes other horses but as he was 21 years old at castration, he will have some stallion tendencies so may need to live with geldings.

“He is such a character, the staff will really miss him here but it would be so nice for him to have someone who can give him the attention he deserves.”
