Otto's Previous Owner, Andy
Otto’s Previous Owner:
“Due to a separation I was unfortunately in a position where I had to rehome one of our horses, Otto. He was a lovely character and a very well schooled, and capable horse, but had some issues with travelling and hacking out alone. I was directed towards Horses4Homes by a friend.
Otto was listed on Horses4Homes on 8th February via an easy to follow procedure. I could not believe that on that very same day I received 3 full applications as well as numerous questions from other interested people who had viewed him on the site. The detail that Horses4Homes asks people to supply on the application form really enables you to start making an informed decision about who you would like to come and view your horse. It really cuts out time wasters and the non-genuine people. The staff at Horses4Homes are also really helpful if you have any questions or just need a friend to chat to during what can be a distressing and emotional time! Otto received a further 9 applications out of which I invited 5 people to view. All of the people who viewed were lovely and genuine. After meeting them and then re-reading their applications I was able to narrow the field down and eventually pick out Otto’s new owner.
He is now living with a lovely new mum, who is completely smitten with him, and they get on really well. We are even staying in touch, and she sends me regular updates about his progress! Horses4Homes were fantastic during a really stressful time for me, and enabled me to swiftly find a great home for Otto, with the confidence that I was making the right decision for him. The whole rehoming process took 4 weeks, which was so much quicker than I was expecting. I cannot thank them enough and would thoroughly recommend them to anyone having to consider rehoming their equine friend. Thanks once again!”
