Astra - full profile

Introduction

Despite a rough start in life Astra is a delightful little filly. She is a polite pony and generally good to handle for her age. She is a bright, intelligent girl who is ready to give affection on her own terms and she forms a strong bond with her companions. Astra is particularly good with the other babies on the farm and takes over the big sister role. Astra has the potential to back to ride when she is older so we are looking for a knowledgeable home with a person who has previous experience of backing ponies. Astra is predicted to make approximately 14hh when fully grown and will have a maximum rider weight of about 9 stone.

Temperament

Astra is a quick learner and a willing little pony who should make a lovely riding pony when she is older.

History

Astra was part of a large RSPCA welfare concern. An elderly couple had over 80 horses that were breeding indiscriminately and were not getting adequate care. Numerous horses were being kept constantly stabled in complete darkness, some had overgrown feet. The horses being kept out in the fields were found to be underweight and in very poor condition.

General Information

13hh is Astra's current height, we predict she will make approximately 14hh when fully grown.
