Little Jay (Jason) is a blind cob pony, who has recovered from his ordeal and is now enjoying life with his favourite companion, Elliot. If you would like to help please consider sponsoring both Jay and Elliot (aka Jelliot!).
Elliot is a piebald cob, D.O.B. estimated April 2015. Elliot came into our care with Kyle. They came in together and stuck to one another like glue, both far too young to be away from their mothers. They were nearly killed in traffic, but luckily the right people spotted them at the right time.
Elliot has now become best friends with blind pony Jay, they enjoy each other's company and Elliot is Jay's eyes.
In July 2016, we got a message from a young lad who bought this pony out of a yard in Adamstown, Dublin. He contacted us when he realised there was something seriously wrong with him.
Jason is blind and had a serious infection in his groin, he was underweight, had scrapes and cuts which lead to swelling all over his body, he was sunburnt and his skin was like cardboard, coming off in pieces due to eating ragwort, as he was starving.
He was put on treatment for his skin condition, kept out of the sunlight due to the sensitivity, he was also on aloe vera to help his skin heal, as well as medication for his eyes and liver.
In September 2016, Jason sadly had to have one of his eyes removed, which was done by our friends at UCD Veterinary Hospital. He was able to have his pal Elliot with him for the entire time he was there and during the travel to and from UCD.
Gramps was surrendered to us in 2016. He was very underweight and his feet extremely overgrown. This gentle donkey will be staying with us at MLHR forever.More Info on
