Eira was one of four mares that we rescued in January 2018. She was, like the other two greys, born in the field that we brought them from, has been handled very little in her life and is very limited in her experiences.  We are not sure of the age of any of the ponies, but we believe Eira to be the oldest of them – she has a maturity about her that is different to the others.  She is not the leader of the group however (Seren has taken that role) and she is not the bravest either, as she prefers to stand back and assess a situation rather than naively dive in.  She has an independent streak too – perhaps that has come with age, as she is happy to graze away from the others and is more comfortable being on her own.  But she is not antisocial in the slightest, just a little shy – when she does approach, which she is doing so much more already, she is most gentle and kind – she just takes a little longer than the younger girls.  Eira is starting to realise that human contact can be equally rewarding and that she can have nothing to fear at Mane Chance and it’s wonderful to see her understanding of this grow.  To a newcomer, Eira and Carys look identical; indeed, the only difference we have found so far is that Eira has a slightly thinner mane and tail than Carys, but their personalities are certainly not the same.  We know that they all are going to be wonderful horses to work with once we have completely gained their trust and the wisdom and maturity that Eira brings to the group will only make that equine/human relationship stronger.
