When we first came across Phyllis, both she and her mum Gwen were loose on common land and were uncatchable. Both were pregnant and close to giving birth. Just three weeks after she came to us, Phyllis gave birth to Bobbie Tulsa. Despite the fact that Phyllis is already a mother, she is still only a young horse herself that hasn’t had the benefit of life’s full experience.  Phyllis is a particularly interesting personality too – she has a really strong streak and holds a quite dominant place in her herd underneath the matriarch, Gwen, who is also her mother, of course. 

But once away from the security of the other horses, she shows a vulnerable side that seems quite out of character.  So to help this slight anxiety, over the weeks that our Equine Behaviourist has been working with her, she has been taken out of the tracks on her own and walked around the site including round the pond, investigating new surroundings, surfaces and sights and it’s been fascinating to see her take everything in.  She has done really well and we can see her confidence growing each time she takes a trip out!  It shows a charming, more sensitive side to Phyllis who initially always appears to be a really tough cookie!
