Hi everyone, my name is Salter. I am a very special boy, so my groom has said I can do my own write up, to tell people all about myself (she typed it for me as my hooves are too big for the keyboard). I am 100% a total gentleman in every respect, I am very handsome and have lovely manners both in and out of the stable. I make an excellent companion to other horses as I am friendly and calm, but quietly independent and am happy to spend time on my own while my horse friends are ridden. I bond very closely with my carers and love nothing more than spending quiet quality time with my people. I am told I’m cheap to keep – I don’t know what that means, but I can happily live out all year round and don’t want to wear a rug. I might need a little bit of hay if the grass stops growing in winter, but I don’t need to eat lots of food, although I would like to. Unfortunately I didn’t have a very nice home before I came to live at Glenda Spooner Farm, and sometimes things can still worry me. I will need a home with somebody who has good knowledge of equine behaviour and is confident to work with me, using positive reinforcement when I am confronted with something that worries me. If you would like more information on what this might involve, please do apply for me so my groom can tell you all about me. Thank you very much for reading my story, I look forward to meeting you soon, love from Salter x
Salter is a pony who needs to build up trust on a one to one basis as he can be very wary of new people and situations.
Salter was one of a group of colts that were brought in to Glenda Spooner Farm as part of a welfare case in 2014. He was completely unhandled and very nervous.
