Bombay - full profile

Introduction

Bombay is a very handsome gelding that is ready for rehoming as a companion. He came into Belwade Farm as a welfare concern and was gelded at the farm. It took him a while to settle into life at the farm, but he has turned into a friendly, sensitive pony. Bombay was broken to ride but unfortunately due to poor conformation proved extremely reactive under saddle. Although he is not suitable as a ridden pony, he will make a brilliant companion as he has a lovely temperament. Bombay adores people and comes to call in the field. Due to being gelded later in life he is only suitable to live with geldings but will happily live across the fence from mares. He is brilliant to handle and enjoys nothing more than coming in for attention from his groom. Bombay is always happy to greet you in the field and behaves well for the vet and farrier. Bombay was extremely overweight when he arrived at the farm and it has taken quite a while to get him back to a healthy weight. His new home must be able to keep him on restricted grazing to keep his weight down. Bombay would be more than happy to stay in a stable whilst his field mates were away being ridden. He will need someone that has plenty time to spend pampering him as it takes a while to groom his impressive mane and feathers! He is a very handsome cob and is a bit of a poser. If you think Bombay sounds like the right companion for you, please apply online.

Temperament

Bombay is a sweet natured friendly boy that enjoys lots of attention.
