Cocoa - full profile

Introduction

Cocoa is a youngster with lots of character who is now ready to find a new home where she can grow up and continue her education on the ground as well as being a companion to other horses. She would suit a home where she can live out as much as possible, although she could be stabled for short periods if needed and if this was introduced gradually. Cocoa has been well handled and taken to all the basic tasks asked of her such as meeting the vet and farrier, leading in hand and even being bathed. The perfect home for Cocoa would be with someone who has experience of youngsters and has the time to dedicate to her in her formative years. She can be a little opinionated at times so needs to know her boundaries. Cocoa has had a very poor start in life and will need longer to mature and may or may not be suitable for ridden work when she is older. In her new home, Cocoa could participate in low level horse agility or walks in hand as she has a very busy brain and it will help with her youngster education. Cocoa has a predicted height of about 12.3hh

Temperament

She is very friendly, but needs to know her boundaries when being handled.

History

Cocoa arrived at Glenda Spooner Farm in February 2016 as part of a large prosecution case. She was being kept in unsuitable conditions, was terribly underweight and found it very difficult to walk properly, because of the poor condition of her feet.
