Alpha - full profile

Introduction

Alpha is a lovely youngster with an inquisitive nature. He is a sociable boy who gets on well with others and likes to play with his friends. Alpha is generally well mannered and good to handle but like all youngsters will need regular handling to maintain his good manners. He is a friendly gelding who enjoys fuss and attention and always likes to know what is going on. When Alpha is old enough he has the potential to make a lovely ridden pony. We are looking for a home for Alpha with someone who has previous experience with backing youngsters. We think Alpha's adult height will be 14-14.2hh and he will have a maximum rider weight limit of 9.5 stone.

Temperament

Alpha is an inquisitive youngster who needs regular handling to maintain his good manners.

History

Alpha came into World Horse Welfare in May 2019 as a welfare concern. He was an unhandled colt on arrival and came in with a large group of other horses. The group consisted of around 80 horses, some were being kept constantly stabled in complete darkness, some were noticed to have overgrown feet and many of them were in very poor body condition. There was no proper management, no worming program or correct diet and breeding was continuing indiscriminately.
