Gwen is the most sensitive horse on the park. She was badly abused and the police reported that she was always tied up and regularly beaten. Eventually she escaped, only to be wild on common land for two years. While she was feral she gave birth to Phyllis and together they stayed wild and uncatchable. Both of them were later covered by a gypsy stallion who was also loose on the same area of land. We helped catch Gwen and Phyllis and brought them back to Mane Chance where both gave birth three weeks later.
We spend much time with Gwen on a daily basis helping her to build her trust and let go of the bad experiences in the past. It is a slow process but she now lets us put on a head collar, groom her and she even enjoys a scratch!

Relationships
Gwen is the mother of Phyllis and also of Blue Boy. She also is the grandmother of Phyllis’ daughter Bobbie. So Gwen, at no older than four years of age is already a grandmother! Together the four horses make a close knit and loving family unit and have been integrated into the main herd with Gwen having a particular soft spot for Jay-J, her toyboy.
