Four neglected horses have found a new home with comedian John Bishop at his home in Cheshire.
Bishop and his wife, Melanie, supported World Horse Welfare's Rehome a Horse Month by agreeing to take Dora, Amara, Indie and Mable.
The Liverpudlian star said:
"Melanie and I share a love of animals of all shapes and sizes and foster the belief that there are so many animals who have been neglected or abused that rehoming is the only logical option.
"Growing up I never thought I would have a field full of horses, but owning them isn't rocket science - you just need a bit of common sense and a good sense of humour. They're strong-willed, unpredictable and impulsive so it's a lot like bringing up children."
The couple already have a menagerie of rescue pets at their home which includes two English bull terriers, Bilko and Tigger, as well as pot-bellied pig Milo.
Cloudier compared to Wednesday. Rather cool and breezy. Shower risk over PenninesRead the full story ›
