May is ready to be rehomed as a non ridden companion. She is a gentle and kind mare who has been an excellent companion in her time at the farm to youngsters and old ponies alike. She is very good to handle but likes a calm approach. May lives out 24/7 but could stable part time if needed and would, if introduced gradually, stay on her own for short periods. May will need to find a home with someone who is competent at clipping as, due to old leg mite scarring, she will need her lower legs clipping every 2 -3 weeks to ensure they stay clean and any scabs can be treated accordingly. She is excellent to clip and stands quietly to have this done. May will need restricted grazing so would suit a home with other ponies on similar management.
She has an excellent temperament.
When May arrived at Glenda Spooner Farm in 2014, she was extremely thin, with a body condition score of 0.5, was riddled with lice and suffering from rain scald along her back. May became our adoption horse at the farm and since retiring from this role, is ready to find a new home as a non ridden companion
May will need to a have her lower legs clipped out every 2-3 weeks, because of mite scarring. This will help to keep her comfortable and prevent sores at the back of her knees and on her heels. If stabled, she must not be bedded on straw.
