If you are interested in offering a long-term guardian home to any of our horses and ponies please fill in a Lluest Loan Application Form and post it back to us or alternatively please email equine@lluesthorseandponytrust.co.uk 

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 friendly chap but since the loss of his owner he has become nervous and difficult to catch by her novice husband. We aren’t sure if he has lived with mares before so for this reason we are looking for a home as a companion to one or more geldings.

Ideal Home: An experienced and patient adult home. Troy would be a great companion to another gelding and would benefit from a routine.

Beatrix

Age: Late teens

Height: approx 11.2hh

Location: Lluest 

Description: Bea is a sweet grey Welsh type. She returned from a Guardian home last year through no fault of her own. She has a recent history of laminitis and prefers to come in to a stable at night. She is good to catch lead and groom.

Ideal Home: A Guardian experienced with managing laminitis and a companion with similar needs. 

 

Melody

Age: early teens

Height: approx 11.2hh

Description: She was rescued in foal in Feb 2019 and is waiting for her forever Guardian home. Mel does have sweet itch and will need to wear a fly rug from April through to autumn. 

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 will need her weight managing to ensure she doesn’t get it. 

 

Rosa – REHOMED

Age: Born 2015

Height: approx 12hh

Description: She was rescued in February 2020 and was a defensive unhappy little girl. She soon realised that the humans at Lluest weren’t a threat and began to enjoy her interactions, which always meant enjoyable scratches and food. Rosa has a quirky personality and wouldn’t be suitable in a home with young children. She has lived out with mares and gelding’s, foals and yearlings without any issues. Some days Rosa can be loving and enjoy attention and other days she is a typical mare and will pin her ears back the moment you enter her stable. She can have her feet picked out and trimmed, but this is a work in progress as she occasionally decides she isn’t happy with having her feet picked up. She lunges and long reins beautifully and really enjoys her work time. Despite her little quirks she really is a lovely girl and will thrive in an experienced, confident home.

Ideal Home: Rosa is a very good doer and requires an experienced home that will restrict her grazing and mange her weight appropriately. She will need at least one other companion with similar needs.  We think in time she would make a lovely adults driving pony. 

 

Lilly – RESERVED

Age

Height: approx 11hh

Description: Lilly is a sweet Welsh section a, she is used to children and is a real sweetheart.  

Ideal Home: A knowledgeable home and a companion with similar management needs.  

Kizzy, Charlie & Boycie

 Out Reach Rehome

Age: 19yo, 19yo & 7yo

Height: 

About: Kizzy and Charlie are black Shetland’s, Boycie is their companion pygmy goat. Their lifetime owner has downsized and the new property owners took on their care, however, they are no longer in a position to continue caring for them. The trio must stay together as Boycie is particularly bonded to the ponies.   

Ideal Home: Their ideal home would be one that can provide low quality grazing with good fencing and shelter. The new Guardian’s must be knowledgeable in the care of native ponies and goats. They must also have a holding number.  

 

Gertie – REHOMED

Age

Height: approx 10.1hh

Description: Gertie is a native Carneddau pony and was rescued in early 2016, very thin with a foal at foot. She is nervous with new people, but very sweet with those she knows. She has all her basic handling and is happy to stand for the farrier. She has lived with mares and geldings, Shetlands and cobs.

Ideal Home: An experienced home with a companion with similar management needs. Gertie is a good doer and will need her grazing very restricted.

Elmo

Age

Height: approx 11hh

Description: Elmo is a Dartmoor hill pony type, he is a Skewbald gelding with very little white. He is a sweet boy who used to enjoy being led out on rides in his previous companion home.

Ideal Home: An experienced home with a companion with similar management needs. Elmo thrives in a home where he has lots of love and attention.

Merlyn

Age: 2009

Height: 13hh

Location: Near Lampeter in Foster

Description: Registered Welsh Part Bred gelding. Gorgeous dapple grey in summer, woolly mammoth in winter. Living with three mares at the moment which is testament to his negotiating skills. Project pony or companion. Possibly has been lightly backed but would need restarting from scratch. Excellent with the dentist and farrier. Difficult to load but his foster carer 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 had laminitis in the past and his ongoing management would need to be preventative. 

Ideal Home: An experienced home with a companion with similar management needs. Merlyn would settle better in a home with more than one companion, especially if the companion is ridden.
