Lili 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.  Even the simplest of tasks that we perform on the farm, such as the poo pick, is something entirely new to them all and they have settled in incredibly well, considering how much they have had to accept in such a short time.  All of the greys look so similar that it is hard to tell them apart – Lili helps us out though as her mane is worn on the other side from the other two (the left as you look at her) and so you can identify her from afar.  When you get close, she also has two pink nostrils when the others have one pink and one grey so it hasn’t take long for her to gain the nickname Lili the Pink!!  But we are learning that their personalities are really quite different and their own characters are shining through – Lili is quite bold and has shown bravery in being the first to take new steps – eating from feed bowls, accepting a scratch and stepping into a field shelter for the first time.  We are grateful to her for showing the way for the others and know that she will be invaluable in helping them develop too as time goes on as they look to her for guidance.  We have a lot to do yet – introducing them to the farrier, the dentist, even being groomed and wearing a head collar to go for a walk around the Sanctuary and it will be a slow process, but we have all the patience in the world.  We know that these ponies are going to make the most wonderful horses for our Sanctuary visitors to spend time with and we are so delighted that we were able to give them a home and a second chance.
