  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Experianced knowledgable home, with own yard and 24 hr turnout when needed, someone who is very gentle and loving,and has a quiet nature, she has been very badly abused,was a nervous wreck when i got her but even througout All of the things that i have had to teach her and do with her even when she has been truly terrified she has never even attempted to kick out. I would prefer someone mature. She has the most gentle kind nature but is sensitive. Loan to start, would sign over once perfect home is found.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Allergic to clipper oil, so needs to be washed after full clip with hibbiscrub, but does not apply for hogging and trimming feathers

Treated for suspected ear mite but not confirmed, short course of antihistamine after clipping because we didn’t know she was allergic to the oil.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Very good, live in farming area and very narrow lanes, have not met anything yet that has bothered her, very calm with the noise and visual aspect of traffic,tractors, cars,vans,trailers, horse boxes and cars.

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

Good alone but like all horses is more alert to things around her, calm and well behaved, can be unsettled when taken to a place she has not been before but still behaves well. In company she is more lively and gets competitive in an open field where she knows she is going to canter, so then can be strong and excitable, but has never bucked, and has always been controllable. Will look at odd or unexpected objects on the ground, we stop, have a look,as soon as she sused it, we walk on,

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

Will be nervous of new owner at first so someone who can understand the trauma that this poor beautifull mare has experianced most of her life,she is a very genuine mare soft, gentle and kind she has learned to trust me, so may take time with someone new. I have been a BHSAI for over 40 yrs, so I know she is very special to be like this after what she has gone through
