Rocky came to us as his owners circumstances changed and it became untenable for him to stay. He is a young fellow and has a lot wrong with him as he was the product of inbreeding. But he is a darling and is loving the space and freedom he has at Mane Chance and will gently be integrated to the rest of the shetland herd. We are hoping that Daisy will take him under her wing and teach him a bit of mutual grooming and manners! Previously, Rocky has been a companion to a larger horse and it is clear that he saw her as a mother figure and is not actually that confident on his own – but he is still very young – he is not yet three! So he has had a lot to learn and he is really trying – a drainage grate outside the stable he spends the night in seemed a canyon to him at first and he had to brave the crossing of what he saw as a very scary item – but he did, eventually, and now he simply taps it with his hooves as he returns as if to remind us all how brave he is! The electric fencing is a new one on him too and that’s taking some courage and concentration to understand – but he is managing it. Even his little whinnie is child-like and we await the moment he finds his true voice. Every day and week he is with us, he is showing us what a lovely boy he is and we can’t wait to put him in with others of his own size, so he can truly grow (but probably not too much as he is a Shetland) and blossom.
