Relevant health or lameness issues

Been very traumatised by a neighbour's stallion that broke into his field & got the mares. He was hunted down as he tried to protect them & was viciously attacked. Veterinary care was immediate & he made a full recovery. Not fair in such a gentle pony. NB have to be careful with wormers as he's reacted to some - details can be given.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Seen by vet following aforementioned stallion attack. Given antibiotics and antiseptic cream and made full recovery.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Perfect gentleman for loading & travelling, box & lorry, but has to wear leg protection as so delicate. Always used as the loading pony. Used to being led out on quiet roads around Bodmin Moor, not used to heavy traffic. Been to many shows and used to show traffic.

Please describe your horses behaviour when hacking out alone and in company

N/A

Details of any individual behavioural traits which may influence the type of person best suited to take on the horse

Bit of a baby in winter due to his fineness. Does need tlc. We wouldn't rug him in a hurry or his fine coat wouldn't grow at all, once it had he would then be rugged with varying thicknesses with neck cover. Had own stable/permanent access to deep littered shelter throughout winter & treated to pony club standards. Hay limitless & a bucket morning & evening. Not a good doer, can do well on good untainted pasture, but does feel the cold. Loves human company. Has never kicked or bitten.
