Neglected Pony Hooves Were So Long He Couldn’t Walk | The Dodo: Comeback Kids S01E03


– We were called by the
animal welfare authorities. There was a pony locked
up for a long time, and he needed us to take
him and to care for him, because he was really,
really heavily mistreated. It was just horrible. We are a horses and farm animal sanctuary. We have about 400 farm animals. In Belgium, there are very
few farm animal sanctuaries, but they are very often mistreated. They need a place that
takes care of them. When Poly arrived here,
we called our blacksmith so he could chop off the
biggest part of the hooves which are really, really
heavy for such a little pony. That’s 540 degrees of curving. We have never, ever seen that. Poly just couldn’t walk. – That’s the first day
Poly’s ever had good care and people who really,
really loved him already. Good things were happening,
were beginning to happen. He didn’t have any kind of
personality when he arrived here. Now he does what he wants. He’s very, very kind with people. Now he has a real pony life. – Two or three days after Poly arrived, Lola was born here. She’s very small, Poly’s very small. He needed company. We put them together. At first, Lola’s mother was
very, very protective of her, but Lola really, really
wanted to go to see Poly. It took a few days, and then Lola’s mother took confidence in Poly
and let him approach Lola. I think they’re more than friends, he’s like a father for her. It’s like Lola’s been adopted by Poly. Look at that. Yeah, they really love each other. He has a great life now
with his new family. – Such a comeback,
that’s amazing how a pony who has suffered like this in the hands of humans still has
confidence in other humans. He’s full of hope, love, friendship. Yeah, he’s everything. How you can overcome
what life does to you, what other beings do to
you, just with love of life.

  2. Here I go ranting again…why do people get an animal and keep it if they don't want to take care of them?!! It's so heartbreaking…and perplexing. I just don't get it. I am so glad there are many people who care about these creatures…just not enough of them.

  3. ماهذه رحمه الي عدكم بالبشر وبالحيوانات جوكم حلو حياتكم جميله اخلاق الاسلام وي حيوان والبشر💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

  4. Поник стоял в столе, что так выросли копыта, я ну, как, так, что его вообще не выгуливали, он же конь хоть и маленький, я в шоке, бегал бы себе и то не такое запустение было бы (стачивались)

  5. No le entiendo a todo lo qué dicen, pero lo qué si entiendo es que ayudaron al pony lo rescataron y cuidaron 😍😍

  6. the pony is sososos cute i love him so much he took my heart 😍💘❤💓💕💖💗💙💚💛💜💝💞💟🐎

  7. I can't watch another neglect gone wrong. I thank God he has given these animals a person like you. Your calling is GREAT as you are chosen. Amen. Thank you.

  8. Why not put him in a wheel barrow when walking during this tough time of transformation when moving him. Hopefully he is doing really well and no longer in pain.

  9. Parabéns pelo o bem que vcs fazem aos animais!!! O MUNDO tá precisando de gente assim como vcs❤❤❤❤.

  10. After all this torture by someone…he still had faith in us..humans ..god bless poly …once again… from India

  11. Abuse bothers me so much. People who really want to care for a animal sometimes can't afford to keep one. Then some others who are lucky enough to have one
    treat them horrible!

  12. Why does this girl sound like she never said this and they just edited a bounch of words she said and put them together.

  13. This was so cute. 🙌😍🥰
    My heart exploded with love at the people who helped him!!
    God bless y’all

  14. come si può ridurre così questo angelo quanto avrà sofferto grazie per averlo curato e salvato grandi! ciao piccolo buona vita amore grazie!!!👏👏💪💪💙❤💋💋

  15. I have always loved horses, so I was horrified to see the neglect/abuse he received! Before I go on, I need to know that his previous owner(s) were prosecuted! Please tell me they had serious consequences as a result of their atrocious actions (and inaction). Why didn’t the owner just give him away if she/he didn’t want him??!

  16. Как можно довести до такой степени? Это просто УЖАС. Бедная лошадка, крошечка.

  17. After his shave & bath as he's walking down the hall @1:58 you can see in his beautiful bright eyes the happiness… Makes all these tears worth it…

    Thank you to these beautiful loving people of Belgium, your efforts are changing this world for the better! ♥️ Bless you! 🇧🇪
    Love from 🇱🇷

  18. Cómo cenicienta. Ahora vive en un palacio. Gracias a todas estas maravillosas personas que aman los animales.

  19. he looks like a new pony, good job.
    does Poly remind anybody else the Peter Dinklage character on Game of Thrones?

  20. Thanks 🙏God for wonderful people like you!! I loved all what you do with that pony. And all you do with all the lovely animals you care for, people who abuse animals should go to jail for no less than 50 years.

  21. Like I've said before, if your circumstances change and you can't take care of your animals anymore, take them to a shelter it costs nothing and just explain about your change in circumstances and you won't be judged! You're more likely to be judged if you do nothing and they end up suffering and starving. Just a suggestion peeps because they all depend on us to take care of them and their needs because they cannot speak and tell us if there is anything wrong. Poly is a lovely little pony, so trusting too!

  22. That's insane o,o I had no idea that could happen to their hooves under any circunstances!
    I freakin hope it doesn't become a fashionable pet trend
