UK pony affected by acid attack given second chance

When Cinders the pony was just eight months old she was badly burned in what appeared to be an acid attack.

But thanks to groundbreaking technology using fish skin, she's been given a second chance.

After being attacked with acid and dumped in a field it was feared that Cinders would never recover.

In a world first vets sewed fish skin on to Cinders' face with collagen and it allowed her skin to regenerate.

The surgery only came about via people's donations after being so horrified by the attack.

Cinders is now on the way to her new home in the countryside.
