I’m sure Starburst made some little lady extremely happy. Please don’t change her natural beauty in any way. Letting the kids in on them was probably the highlight of their day, but it doesn’t bode well for Starburst.’ When contacted for comment, Farah’s rep told Metro.co.uk that Farah, her family and Starburst watching professionals ‘do not mistreat or neglect the animal’, and the horse has had a recent health struggle.

Starburst’s eye was saved and now she can see again in both eyes.

‘Farah and Sofia are happy to see Starburst happier than ever.’

This isn’t the first time Farah has been accused of abusing animals, as she was called out in 2020 for putting a muzzle on her new puppy. After posting a video of the dogs Boo and Cupcakes accusing them of animal abuse. There were more allegations of abuse, including one with a ribbon tied around his mouth.

The Pomeranian Boo’s fur was blue and the cupcakes were bright pink.

Farah later told the publication

Left with no choice but to respond, Farah later told the publication: ‘The haters have made a ribbon on my pet, which is false. We use a muzzle for her training according to a trainer’s review, which are sold at all pet stores.’ She claims that her daughter treats her dogs ‘like royalty’ that their pets have been ‘trained to the guidelines of the law’.
