Train-boarding pony offered home by Flicka Foundation

A pony which made the news last week as it was refused entry on a train along with its owner has been offered a home by Cornwall-based Flicka Foundation.

It said that it would offer £200 to take the animal and provide it with shelter and fields for her to roam in, pony insurance policyholders have been told.

"We would like to take her on and offer her a home for life as we have been made aware of Ruby through the press. She looks well, but it is not a life for a pony. She should be grazing in a field with other horses. Our horses get a lot of attention and we get lots of visits from children," the charity's Judy Giles told The Leader.

It comes after CCTV footage was released of owner Joe Purcell, 68, and Ruby attempting to board a train and seek treatment at Wrexham Maelor Hospital.
