  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    I am very keen to find a loving, knowledgeable, permanent home for BJ. Ideally he would be a companion to one or two other horses and either live out or be turned out every day. He prefers to come in/have access to shelter in winter as he doesn't like bad weather and he does need to be rugged if it is cold or wet. I am happy to continue to pay for BJs insurance and I would also consider a transfer of ownership to the right person if this was of interest.
