Ziggy Rehomed

Introduction

Ziggy is ready to find a new home, ideally with his friend Crumpet as they have lived together for several years. Ziggy is very good to handle and is quite content pottering around his paddock but would also enjoy a groom in the sunshine. The perfect set up for Ziggy would be a quiet home with an adult handler where he can gradually settle in and relax in his new home. He would need restricted grazing to prevent obesity and laminitis but could be stabled part time if introduced as part of a routine. A rehomer that already has the set up for Shetlands including limited grazing and good fencing would be the best scenario for Ziggy. Please be aware that Ziggy does have Cushings disease and is on a low level medication daily. A rehomer would need to continue with this in the home as well as a yearly vet check.

Temperament

Very good to handle

History

Ziggy came in to World Horse Welfare originally in 2014. He was successfully rehomed for several years with his friend Crumpet, only returning in February 2020, through no fault of his own.

General Information

Ziggy will require ongoing medication for Cushings
