Cocoa is a pony with lots of character who is looking for a home where she can continue her education on the ground, as well as being a companion to other horses. She has been well handled and taken to all the basic tasks. She is very good to catch, lead in hand and even loves being bathed. She currently lives out with mares but will stand in a stable part time if needed. The perfect home for Cocoa would be with other ponies or horses and with a rehomer who can still continue dedicating a small amount of time each day to ensure correct handling. As she had a very poor start in life, Cocoa 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 which she really enjoys. She has a predicted height of about 12.3hh.
She is very friendly, but needs to know her boundaries when being handled.
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.
