We have owned Holly for 5 years. She is a friendly and loveable pony who really loves people and is happy to be groomed and fussed, and particularly likes to have her ears scratched. She has excellent feet and will stand happily for the farrier and dentist. She has lived with geldings and loves to have a friend but is untried with mares. She normally lives out all year although is also happy to be stabled. She is fed grass with some hay in the winter and isn't on any medication.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    She has spent a year as a companion to a gelding and has been relaxed, happy and healthy. She has recently moved and settled easily with another gelding. She allows him to be boss. If her companion is in work, she is best left in a stable when the other horse is taken away. Ideally the owner will give her attention and fuss, as she loves this!

Relevant health or lameness issues

Holly initially suffered with a torn ligament and tendon, and the stress caused by this led to soft tissue tightness in her back and ovary issues. These problems were resolved but she became lame again. The vet suggested she may be susceptible to soft tissue injuries (but there has been no official diagnosis). We retired her to reduce her stress, and she has spent 18 months as a companion and has been relaxed, happy and healthy with no lameness. Examined by vet in April, sound and healthy, report available.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Only vaccinations in the last 12 months. No health problems since being out of work. Holly may be suitable for light hacking in the future but, as she bucks when she is in pain, this is difficult to determine. She has had no surgery, just rehabilitation treatment at Hartpury and at home for ligament and soft tissue issues. She has had injections to prevent her ovaries working so may be infertile. Teeth checked and rasped in Feb 2018 - lovely calm dentist so no sedation necessary

Welsh Section D, Cob

The Welsh Cob (Section D) is the largest size within the Welsh Pony and Cob breed registries. They must be taller than 13.2 hands(54 inches, 137 cm), with no upper height limit. They are used as riding animals for both adults and children, and are also used for driving. They are known for their hardiness and gentle nature.

Though they are the tallest and stockiest of the Welsh sections, the head remains full of pony character, with large eyes, and neat ears. The legs may be relatively short, also akin to pony proportions. Mature stallionshave somewhat cresty necks, those of mares are generally leaner. Like the section C, they have powerful, extravagant action. Greycoloring is rarer in the section D cob than other types of Welsh ponies, but bold white markingsare common.

Today, the Section D is best known for use in harness driving, but they are also shown under saddle and in hand. Like other Welsh ponies, Cobs are also exhibited over fences as hunters and jumpers.
