Summer always brings with it joy, happiness and new life – summer of 2016 will always be extra special at CUPA as we welcomed a brand new, beautiful resident – baby filly Xena.Her mother is Zoya, a gentle pony and resident of the Large Animal Rehabilitation Centre since she was rescued from abrupt abandonment. What Xena doesn’t know yet is that she is born with a deformity in her front legs, which means that she will stay within CUPA’s protected fort for life. Like all other young ponies, she prances around her mother, oblivious to her impediment. Only time will tell us what the universe has in store for this precious one.
