FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - The Humane Society of North Texas is collecting donations for care of a pony and her foal who were severely burned in a barn fire south of Fort Worth.

The Fort Worth Star Telegram reports (http://bit.ly/1tpPyAx ) that a pony named Bella was found trying to shield her foal Butterscotch from the flames.

Bella sustained burns over much of her body, and officials weren't sure if her flame-scarred ears could be saved. Butterscotch sustained several smaller burns.

Both are being attended to by Human Society volunteers, who hope to raise $4,000 for their care.

The pair was in a barn near Alvarado in the early morning hours of April 6 when a heating lamp shorted out, causing an electrical fire.
