The story of Bella the burned pony has gone "national," so an unpdate is in order.
Bella was rescued April 6 from an electrical fire in a barn near Alvarado.
She was found on top of her foal, Butterscotch, trying to block the flames, but she was burned over much of her body.
But Bella and Butterscotch have responded well to round-the-clock care at a Decatur equine clinic, said a spokeswoman for the Humane Society of North Texas.
Nevertheless, they still have a ways to go.
