A Shire horse from Bath who saved a dying mate who was about to be put down due to equine colic will receive an Animal Hero Award tonight at a star-studded ceremony in London.
Beau managed to revive mare Beatrice after rescuers had struggled for six hours.
The awards celebrate the best examples of bravery, dedication and resilience in the animal world.
The Mirror has joined forces with the innovative pet food, treats and toys brand, Webbox and the UK’s leading animal welfare charity, the RSPCA, to pick the most inspiring animals along with the individuals and teams who have shown outstanding commitment to improving their lives.
Farmers Donald MacIntyre and his wife Jane Lipington feared the worst when they found mare Beatrice prostrate in her stable in Bath, with severe abdominal pain due to equine colic.
