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

Feisty and full on Major is looking for a companion home.

Little Major has recently been castrated (July 2020). He has been entire all his life, therefore many of his stallion habits will continue for some time yet, and potential homes must have suitable fencing for smaller equines. He suffers from mechanical lameness, from an old injury but this does not effect him in any way other than appearing lame in trot, he would not be suited to living with a particularly sumbissive horse as he can be dominant, best suited to life with a larger mare. Adoption fee - £200.

Starbuck - Rising 3 - Small Welsh PB (Gelding)

Nicely put together fine Welsh, ideal show pony or possible future childs pony.

Starbuck is a quiet soul, he's been through a string of homes prior to arrival at Pukka Ponies so is a bit detached from forming bonds. He is 3 in June 2021 and was castrated in January 2021. Since arrival he has been mostly very quiet and cautious, but has quickly made friends in the field and is building confidence daily. He is good to generally handle, but is nervous of new people. He has been known to nip, hopefully this is just down to his age and lack of confidence, but due to this we feel he would not be suited as a childs pony. He is eligible for WPCS (PB) overstamp on his passport if desired for showing, he is petite with lovely correct paces and features. Adoption fee - £200.

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)

Candie - 7 year old - British Spotted (Mare)

Ideal show pony for an experienced adult or teen looking for a project

Candie is looking for an experienced home with an older child/teen or lightweight adult. She is not a novice ride, and requires work in the school, she has been taken to local cross country and enjoyed herself, has competed in hand showing, placing high, and is lovely to hack. Candie does have a very strong personality she will push boundaries and therefore requires an experienced home. She has stunning paces and would excel in the right environment. Tack not included. Adoption fee - £250
