Carys is one of four mares that we rescued in January 2018.  She is one of three greys in the herd and almost identical to Eira.  Both of them wear their manes on the right hand side and have one pink and one grey nostril!  In fact, to look at, the only difference we have spotted between them is that Carys has a slightly fuller mane and tail than Eira, so we tell them apart that way.  However, their personalities are not the same at all – Eira is more mature in thinking things through; Carys is a little more curious.   It’s been fascinating to see each of their characters shine through since their arrival, as they are all taking slightly different routes towards trust.  Carys is braver than a couple of the others, but she looks to Lili to check out something new before she steps forward.  But after she has done it once, she doesn’t need leading again and she is happy to try once more.  She has already mastered our feeding bowls (something she had not been used to) and is loving a stroke along the face.  We have a lot to teach her still – about grooming, the farrier, dentist and much more.  But we are confident that Carys will, once shown, take it all in her stride and we will go slowly, allowing her to lead us in her progress.  She is a gentle pony with plenty of kindness to share and over time, we look forward to introducing her to our visitors, particularly children, as we know she will gain as much from that interaction as they will.
