Buster the pony who was left at a Bristol bus stop, has found a new home — thanks to Horse & Hound’s online plea.
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, being tormented by children.
After being rehabilitated, the 22-year-old has now moved to his new home.
“We are so glad Buster has found a lovely new home,” said a HorseWorld spokesman.
“He is such a cheeky little character and will love the fuss and attention he’ll get.
“Thank you to Horse & Hound for publishing his story. If it wasn’t for that article, his new loaners may never have spotted him.”
Buster’s loaners picked him up yesterday (Wednesday 12 February).
His new home will be in Stroud, Glos with Sian Thomas and her mother Corrine and sister Pixie, an advanced eventer.
