I have owned Amy since she was 2 years old and have been putting off homing her for a year which is not far on her because she needs more companionship.She is very dear to me and a sweet girl.She is good with my farrier but can be a bit nippy.Her favourite thing is coming in at night to have a brush down while eating her feed.She is blind in her right eye so you have to talk to her to eye to let her know you are there.She can be jumpy and a bit skittish sometimes and wears a fly mask to protect her eye
