He lost his eye as a foal due to a field accident, due to losing his eye early on in life, he has adapted to life without it. Chip has been living in companion homes, but there is no reason why he couldn’t be backed to ride. He is a bright boy and enjoys learning new things.

Charley

Age: Born 2003

Height: 13.1hh approx

Description: Charley is a Palomino pony gelding. He has had a difficult year, he lost his owner and following his subsequent placement into a Guardian home he then suddenly lost his lifelong companion. Charley had a full vet check in March and was fit and healthy. he hasn’t developed any new symptoms of issues since. He is good with the farrier and we are just getting to know him more whilst he is in our quarantine unit following his return. His only fault is he can be a bit pushy, we feel sure this will improve with regular consistent handling.

Cariad

Age: born 2021

Height: 9.2hh approx

About: Cariad is a sweet and easy pony to do in all ways including to clip, she is excellent with children and has the potential to be brought on as a lead rein pony by an experienced guardian home. Cariad can live in a mixed herd, she is equally as happy to live out and also to be in a stable. She is a very good doer and needs strict weight management. 

Ideal Home:  Cariad currently lives on a grass track with 2 other Shetlands and a section a gelding. She had a chaser type clip in winter to help her lose weight. Her ideal home would be home as a prospective child’s pony. The home would need to be a proactive home who will ensure she remains a healthy weight through a combination of exercise and restricted grazing. Cariad will need companions with similar needs to her own.
