Age: Aged

Height: 7.2hh approx

They both have Cushing’s and are up to date with their vaccinations, dentist and worming. In the last 6 months they have had dental work and now can’t manage hay. In the winter when grass is in short supply they will need to be fed hay replacers throughout the day. They also need to be rugged in cold weather as feel the cold. 

Ideal Home:  Tilly & Darcy’s ideal home would be an experienced adult foster home, where they can be given TLC and live out their days. They would need to go to a home local to the Trust and within 45 mins travelling distance. Lluest will continue to pay for their medication.

Horlicks – REHOMED

Age: 2006

Height: 16hh

About: Horlicks was signed over to Lluest in 2023 in very poor condition. He is back to a healthy body condition and has no health issues. He does have scarred legs from previous injuries but no sign of lameness when observed turned out. He has threatened to kick in the past and this has been when fed in his stable, so needs to be left alone at feeding times. He has more recently been fed in the field with his companions and hasn’t shown any signs of aggression. He was in a Guardian home for 3 months but sadly returned due to his companion passing away and his Guardian unable to find a suitable new one.

He has been ridden prior to rescue but this isn’t something he has been tried with since. He could potentially be brought back into work for hacking in the right home. He is currently unshod but would need shoes, a vet check and a saddle fitted if brought back into work. 

Ideal Home:  An experienced & knowledgeable Guardian with plenty of turnout all year round. As he is a thoroughbred his new home will need to have an understanding and be capable of managing his needs throughout the changing seasons. He has been turned out with a mare & geldings and is always gentle and kind.
