Olive

Olive is a lovely young pony who has been spending increasing time with Tilly and could potentially be rehomed as a pair. She leads well and does lift her feet although will lift her feet to kick out at times so will need further handling.
She is a real character who enjoys playing and being groomed. She is very protective of food and will show aggression if she feels like her dinner is threatened.

Emily & Elijah

Both donkeys will need a home together with someone experienced with horses, donkeys, or both. The home must be patient and willing to continue their training after leaving the sanctuary.

Limited grazing will be needed - ideally a track system if possible to encourage movement, helping with the loss of the additional weight that they carry.

Emily (lighter mare) has a more subdued temperament, only concerned whenever she cannot reach Elijah, unhappy when she can see but not reach him. She is a polite donkey who would be content with or without human attention.

Elijah (darker gelding) is a very curious Donkey. He will meddle with anything new in his environment. Very mentally active and quick to learn forms of enrichment would be very beneficial.

Both leading well-using body language and vocal cues - ‘walk-on’ and ‘Woah’. Very responsive and getting more so with each session.

Whoever was to rehome them would be expected to continue their training and handling.

Jodie and Sanza

Jodie was paired up with Sanza and like everything else Jodie does, she took it all in her stride. She is not sound for riding but could lead a small child around. Jodie has a dust allergy and has a sensitive stomach with food changes. Ideally, she needs to live out with an open shelter.

Jodie adores a little fuss and attention and is always on the lookout for her next 'buddy'.

Sanza doesn't mix well with other horses but gets along with Jodie thanks to the older mares' mellow temperament. She does love attention and fuss though and enjoys grooming. Like Jodie, she isn't sound but could be used for setting a small child on her back.

Both mares must be rehomed together and must go to a five star home.

They would be perfect as a pair of 'field ornaments' for the grandchildren to fuss around. :)

Tilly

Tilly enjoys spending time with Olive so the pair would be happy to be rehomed as a pair! Tilly arrived with us when her owner surrendered her, unable to meet her needs any longer and hoping to give her the best chance in life. She is approximately 10-12 years old and is quite a trouble maker. She loves to explore, to escape, and to play.

She will follow you everywhere given the chance; unless you've left a gate open of course. Open gates are like neon signs for free carrots to our Tilly - she's a moth to the flame. If she's loose on the yard you have to be very careful not to leave any gates ajar or she will be right in.

She is a little picky with her friends but time usually is all she needs. Right now she is besotted with our older shetland NikNak and is often found wherever the elder happens to be.

She has fear of being enclosed, we aren't sure of the trigger, but if she is found to be enclosed in a stable she will do whatever she can to escape the confinement to the point of injury. If there is a fence she can limbo she will, if there is a gate ajar she will aid its opening.

She is such a trouble maker - but we love her to bits! She has a habit of stopping in a spot when you are trying to move a wheelbarrow, the quad or jeep and she will not move for anything. She just stands and looks at you until you physically move her out of the way.

Tilly has had laminitis in the past so we are very careful about her feeding; and her turnout on the grass.

We would love to find her a home where she can have some people of her own to spoil her.

Eve

Meet Eve - Eve is a beautiful girl and she got her name because she was born on Christmas Eve. She is 12 years young and is a very loyal and affectionate girl. She is very friendly she can be great with dogs and cats and loves kids.

Having said that Eve would be suited with a family with older children as she getting old and likes some peace and quiet. For that same reason, she would love someone who lives in a quieter place as city life can be very stressful for her.

Luna & Zeus

Luna can be abit of an escape artist! She enjoys long walks and lots of belly rubs! She can be strong on the lead. Luna is shy towards new people and will lye down, once you give her a wee pet and she realizes everythings ok she's like a ball of energy loving life shes extremely affectionate and loves to keep your seat warm lol... shes brilliant with other dogs will chase cats but never done harm. she is house trained alougth lives outdoors.

Zeus being the complete opposite very unlikely he will ever escape, no adventures for him poor boy always left behind sobbing after his sister. He loves car journeys especially riding front seat alougth this goofy boy may need a hand into the car lol.. Zeus can be funny with new dogs he wont growl or bark just freezes. He's a laid back easy going boy that loves meeting new people and enjoys a back rub. House trained but lives outdoors.

Both have lived together from birth, Zeus is abit of a fatty and loves to steel all the food so they do need watched during feeding time or separated. They would suit a home with older children as they have never experienced much of a family life.

They URGENTLY need rehomed due to current situation.

Reserve Kittens

We have a number of kittens who are being cared for at the sanctuary. They have all been treated for Cat Flu and some have recovered to a degree that we are able to find them new homes where they can grow and continue their handling.

All the kittens are a little wild although have come a long way since arriving at the sanctuary. They will still require daily handling and ideally will need a safe and secure area where they can be kept until they are used to the home and handling.

Any kittens that will be rehomed only when a final health check is completed. They will potentially require an indoor only home and to be the only cats in the home so please keep this in mind when applying.

Looking for a Broad of my Own!

There a few young roosters who would benefit from a brood of their own. Could you offer them a forever home?
