  • Use - Companion


Meet our pair of lovely shetland ponies, Polly and Tonto who are looking for their forever home as companions! 

Tonto is an 18 year old gelding who has the kindest nature. Tonto is easy to catch, lead and groom. He is also good for the farrier.

Polly is our 11 year old, bay mare. She is good to catch, lead and groom however can be a bit fidgety for the farrier but never nasty. Polly does have a cheeky side and likes to be first for everything, especially if it involves food. She is also more of a good-doer than Tonto so her weight must be monitored to prevent her become overweight. 

Both shetlands are very kind so ideally would suit a family home where they can have lots of attention. This home would need to be able to restrict grazing when needed to prevent the ponies becoming overweight.

On average, we have 400 animals come into our shelter every year. Please take a look at some of our horses and ponies looking for loving homes and see if you can find a friend for life. Where appropriate, all of our animals are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. We also give each animal a behavioural assessment to identify their needs and help you find your perfect companion.
