Gwen was found by two hikers in a remote part of the Brecon Beacons National Park stuck in a gorge. She was pulled free and left her to return to the herd of ponies standing nearby. When they returned the following morning to check on the foal, they discovered her alone, standing in almost the same spot. The other horses had gone. So weak was this little ‘wild‘ pony that she didn’t even try to resist the human help offered her. Lluest Welfare Assistants Shannon and Rhian had come to the rescue armed with a bottle of mare replacement milk to rehydrate the foal for her journey back to the Trust and she drank it greedily. Because she was found off the beaten track, the first part of her journey was in the back of a 4×4 to the waiting Lluest ambulance. She was given the name Gwen in the back of the 4×4.
