  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    She has separation anxiety so needs to be with at least one other horse in a field. Somewhere if needs be, both horses can be brought in together. She is good with other horses in fields. However she is food aggressive, so if fed hard food, would need to be fed separately. She does not like to be stabled but with time, and with a companion this may change. She had colic as a four year old and has scaring under her belly so COULD NOT BE USED AS A BROOD MARE.

Relevant health or lameness issues

I bought her not realising she was lame. She's about 10% lame. Have had her Xrayed by Vet and she has navicular and pedal bone wear and tear. She is has muscle wastage on the right hand back leg, which must be a long term issue to. Her front right leg is slightly twisted in (bad confirmation),

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Started having remedial shoes on her which was working but I have moved her around and she's too stressed now so have given up treatment. She had a gassy stomach and was given painkiller for that. She also had a rash on her legs and she was given Isoderm (this all happened at one particular part livery yard)!
