Meet Curly Wurly, our 14 year old cob mare with a stunning moustache! 

Curly is a pony who prefers minimal fuss and attention. She enjoys in hand walks and an occasional groom but is happiest in the field! 

When Curly arrived to Oak Tree she was extremely nervous of people. She has now grown in confidence and is easy for both staff and volunteers to catch and lead. She still has a long way to go but is making steady improvements through the use of positive reinforcement.

Curly stands for the farrier and to have her feet picked out however she does not like having her feathers brushed. This is something we will continue to work on before she is rehomed as well as building up her confidence with the vet. 

Curly is very easy going and is happy to live with mares, geldings, or a mixed herd! She can be stabled if needed but is also fine to live out 24/7, however, she would need restricted grazing during the summer months to prevent obesity. 


Any potential adopters must be willing to continue using positive reinforcement training with Curly to help her build up confidence in her new home.
