Starved horse rescued, recovering at Chichester farm


CHICHESTER - A horse is recovering at the Live and Let Live Farm in Chichester after he was rescued from an animal cruelty situation last week.

The Arabian Gelding, that experts estimate to be 13-years-old, was severely starved and dehydrated, officials said.

The owner of the farm said the horse, Nico, will need months of rehabilitation before he will be able to be adopted.

Teresa Paradis, the owner of the Live and Let Live Farm, said Nico ate his way to freedom by chewing the door until he could get loose and was seen by neighbors in Weare.

Paradis also said the horse was held in a confined stall that was pull of mud and dirty water.

The Live and Let Live Farm is looking for donations to help with Nico's recovery.

NH1 News will have more information on whether any charges will be brought against anyone.
