Horses4Homes are appealing to the public for homes for 4 young, healthy Eriskay Ponies.

Their current owners are being forced out of their home due to the recession and have little money to feed themselves but have not allowed their animals to suffer due to their own misfortune.

Without the quick intervention of Horses4Homes these 4 ponies would have been sent to slaughter. This would have been a tragedy given these ponies are on the critical list of the rare breeds register.

These rare ponies originate from the western isles of Scotland and are one of the hardiest, if not the hardiest, of our native breeds. There are only just over 400 in the world.

The ponies are 3 year olds and range from 12.2 -13.2 hands and will make ideal children’s ponies or conservation grazing ponies due to their hardy and personable nature.

If you think you have the time, expertise and facilities to offer any of these youngsters a temporary or permanent home please contact rebecca@horses4homes.net who will provide you with an application form to complete to assess your suitability.
