A wishlist for Phoenix, the horse which was burned in an arson attack, has sold out within weeks of launching as the Norfolk public rallies to his aid.

The list was set up by Redwings Horse Sanctuary in Hapton, on August 24, in order to get much needed medical supplies for the horse which was burned in an arson attack in Sevenoaks, Kent on August 7.

It comes after the sanctuary announced Phoenix was on the road to recovery, saying he was "pretty alert" and "continuing to drink well" but still had a long way to go.

Along with the many items bought for Phoenix, nearby Millpledge Veterinary Supplies donated a Norwich City coloured vet wrap and football in the hope he will become a fan.

Redwings has thanked the public for all donations and says it will add some new items to the horse's wishlist.

A message on Facebook read: "It may sell out again quickly but don’t worry, we’ll update it again soon and donations to support the work of our horse hospital are always most welcome too."
