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.
