Boo Boo - full profile

Introduction

Boo Boo is looking for a home as a companion with potential. He has a quiet but sensitive nature which would enable him to live a life as a field companion or, with time and the right ground work, potentially be a very light lead rein pony. This would not be essential and he could go for walks in hand or participate in low level horse agility as well. He has been very useful as a babysitter in the past and now currently lives out with a small herd of geldings. It is very important that any potential new home for Boo Boo is able to greatly restrict his grazing, as he is very prone to weight gain. We are looking for a home with ponies on the same strict grazing management, and with a rehomer who is dedicated to keeping an eye on his weight throughout the year.

Temperament

Very quiet and sweet but just a little shy at first.

History

Boo Boo came in to Glenda Spooner Farm in November 2013, following an anonymous call to our welfare line. He arrived with several other ponies as a welfare concern, unhandled and very nervous. The elderly owner who had several health issues, had accumulated in the region of around 100 horses and ponies, some of which were in a prosecutable state due to their poor bodily condition. After intensive rehabilitation to desensitize him and gain his trust, Boo Boo has come on in leaps and bounds with his confidence. He was rehomed for several years and has only returned to us in the late Spring of 2020, due to a change in his rehomers circumstances.
