These are the horrific injuries believed to have been caused when thugs threw acid or a corrosive substance over the face of a young horse.
The foal, thought to be about eight months old, was injured and “riddled with parasites” when it was taken to the Rainbow Equine Hospital in North Yorkshire.
Vet David Rendle said the foal’s injuries looked like someone had thrown a chemical substance into its face.
He said he was hopeful the pony, who has affectionately being named Cinders by the nurses, would make a full recovery.
The foal was brought to the equine hospital in Malton for treatment on Tuesday after it was found dumped in Chesterfield, South Yorks., by a member of the public who alerted the RSPCA.
A foal was left dumped with burns to its face from a suspected chemical attack.
Mr Rendle said: “The foal has got severe burns running from its eyes down to the tip of its nose.
“It certainly looks like it’s had some chemical thrown onto its face rather than accidentally putting its head in a corrosive substance.
“We have cleaned up the wounds and given a blood transfusion from a donor horse.”
The suspected acid attack comes after the RSPCA revealed that horses were regularly being abandoned and left to die by irresponsible owners.
