An animal sanctuary in Somerset have two beautiful young horses in need of a home.
5-year-old Sydney was found with a group of 14 other pregnant mares.
She gave birth to a daughter - India - in April at the Ferne Animal Sanctuary in Wambrook, near Chard.
Now both are in excellent health and in need of loving homes.
- A big girl, expected to make at least 14.2 hands high
- When grown she'll be suitable for riding or being broken to harness
- Very well handled and can lead, be groomed and pick her feet up
- Ideally would love a playmate of similar age
- It’s unknown if she has ever had any training.
- She has had quite an unpleasant life and is often on the defence - but with some time and tender loving care, she should come round and be a lovely pony.
We are now preparing to wean them so they will both be looking for new homes with people who have experience of training and keeping young horses
