When Jay-J came to us he was a nervous and unpredictable pony. He is now the patriarch of the group and stands alongside Gwen as always. His influence in the herd is amazing, particularly considering that he had a difficult start to his life. You wouldn’t recognise that horse now – he is confident, protective, gentle and kind. He loves the human attention and is a favourite with all who meet him. The family herd is such a close group with very strong companionships and Jay-J is central to all of that. If we can work with him to bring the youngsters on in the same way, and they turn out anything like him, then we can be very pleased – he is a real example to all.

The youngsters in the group – Blueboy, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier and Bobbie Tulsa, are all reaching the age where they need a little more stimulation and dare I say it, discipline!!  They have grown into such lovely, healthy horses but sometimes forget that this means that they have to grow in maturity too and still love to run around like they are yearlings!  You can almost audibly hear the tutting and sighing from Jay-J as they run past at speed and nip at each other!  We like to allow horses to be as natural as possible at Mane Chance, but we also know when we need to step in with a few boundaries in order to support and make life as easy as possible for all of the horses in the herd – so we have been teaching a few new lessons to the younger members to allow them to develop at a slightly calmer pace but without losing any of their zest for life!
