Tilly & Darcy

Age: Aged

Height: 8hh

About: Tilly and Darcy are cute mini Shetlands who have recently returned from a long term Guardian home. They can be nervous of new people but once caught are happy to be groomed and have the farrier. They are used to living in at night and out during the day. They are up to date with their vaccinations, dentist and worming. Like all natives they will need to have restricted grazing to ensure that they don’t become overweight. 

Ideal Home:  Tilly & Darcy’s ideal home would be an experienced adult home, where they can live out their days. Being a native breed their new home will need to have an understanding of managing weight to prevent associated problems and laminitis. 

Troy

Age: 19 years old

Height: approx 15hh

Location: Cwmbran Outreach

Description: Troy was originally rescued by the RSPCA, his owner has sadly passed away as too his companion. Troy is a sweet and friendly chap who would be more comfortable with a female guardian. When at the RSPCA, he was a “super nanny to some of their youngsters and a best friend to some of their oldies.” He has recently settled in with a loaned companion whilst he waits for a new home, and is responding well to a local horse owner who is looking after him together with his late owner’s family.”

Ideal Home: An experienced and patient adult home. Troy would be a great companion to youngsters or the older equine and would benefit from a routine.

Ideal Home: An experienced adult home. Mel would be a great companion to another native type or a horse or pony that doesn’t require a lot of grazing. Although she has not had laminitis with us, she is a good doer and will need her weight managing to ensure she doesn’t get it.

Merlyn

Age: 2009

Height: 13hh

Location: Lluest Llangadog

Description: Registered Welsh Part Bred gelding. Gorgeous dapple grey in summer, woolly mammoth in winter. He was living in a foster home with three mares which is testament to his negotiating skills. Excellent with the dentist and farrier. Difficult to load but his foster carer did some work getting him used to loading on a trailer, she is confident he would be fine with some work and positive reinforcement. Happy in a stable but prefers to live out as much as possible and doesn’t gallop around tearing up your fields. He has returned to the Trust after a bout of laminitis and his foster carer was unable to restrict his grazing. His new home will need to ensure his ongoing management is preventative. 

Ideal Home: An experienced home with a companion with similar management needs. Merlyn would be more suited in a home with more than one companion if his only companion is ridden.
