Little Major - 10 year old - Miniature Shetland (Gelding)

Feisty and full on! Major would be an ideal show pony for an experienced home.

Little Major has just been castrated (21/7/20), so he is not quite ready for adoption yet, but he will be in the near future. He has been entire all his life, therefore many of his stallion habits will continue for some time yet, therefore potential homes must have suitable, reinforced fencing, and he cannot be rehomed with mares. He will be introduced to other geldings over the coming weeks once he has recovered from his surgery. Adoption fee - £250.

We will be contacting suitable homes for Major based on facilities and experience, aswell as in order of application.

Dusty - 10 year old - Miniature Shetland (Mare)

Perfect companion for another lamanitic pony, and ideal future childs pony.

Dusty is absoloutely full of personality, she is a lively full on little pony who adores attention and gives the best kisses! Dusty suffers from laminitis, therefore a home experienced in the management of lamanitic ponies is absoloutely essential, ideally with the facility to keep her in a grassless pen or stable if needed. Dusty has recently been introducded to a little rider, and while she had no previous ridden experience she is very content taking her little jockey for a lead rein walk as part of her daily exercise, she has also started to walk out and has been introduced to traffic etc. She has taken everything like a pro and we genuinely can't fault this lively little lady! Adoption fee - £250.

Misty - Approx 20 year old, 13h - Welsh (Mare)

The ideal companion, typical mare and won't take any bother. Impecable manners, never sick or sorry.

Misty is a sweet, genuine uncomplicated little lady, she is in her twilight years alothough that far from holds her back! She has been ridden in the past, although wouln't be described as a first or novice pony as shes very forward going, she has not been regularly ridden for some time and we feel she would be best suited as a companion as her primary job. She could be suitable as a light hack for a competent rider, taking into consideration her age and level of fitness. Adoption fee - £200.

(NB, Misty is presently in a foster placement, which she has been in for a while so viewings would be by strict advance appointment only)

Tyson - 6 year old, 13h - Cob (Gelding)

Tyson is a very sensitive soul, he was subjected to horrific abuse and his mental scars sadly remain fresh several years on. 

Tyson has been with us some time now, originally coming to the rescue via the police. He is extremely cautious, due to his traumatic past, and therefore we feel he is only suited to a companion home. Tyson does not deal well with stress or change, he needs a regular routine, someone with more patience than a saint & a very forgiving farrier! Tyson frequently takes one step forward and five steps back. He is looking for a female primary carer who understands his requirements, he is calm and quiet in the field, respects fencing and can be around mares or geldings of any size without issue, he is happy to be caught with a carrot, but everything needs to be on his terms! Adoption fee - £100.
