Seren was one of four mares that we rescued in January 2018. She was bought from the travelling community by her previous owner, who allowed her to live with other horses on his land, but she has been handled very little and is nervous of contact. Her age is currently unknown but whatever it is, she certainly seems to have chosen to be the leader of the group as she is often the first to check out any visitor to the field. She is actually quite a timid pony but she is already coming on leaps and bounds – at first, she stayed at arms length, allowing the others to get any attention before her. Yet slowly, she is gaining confidence and starting to accept fuss herself – a few of the team have managed to stroke her a little, but it is a gradual process. As we don’t know her background fully, we have no idea what she may have experienced, so we will take it at her pace and slowly we will build her trust.  Underneath the nervousness, Seren is terribly gentle – that is already apparent. Each of the mares has an extremely placid personality and we know that when we have gained their confidence that they are going to make the most wonderful horses to work with our community visitors. Being Welsh ponies, they are not too big and will be perfect for children to meet. We are so delighted to welcome all four to the Sanctuary and look forward to working with them – we have a little way to go though as they have never had their feet trimmed, teeth examined and it’s been a long time since they have been groomed, so we will be slowly teaching them all of that too. But we seem to have a most willing student in Seren and can’t wait for her to learn how rewarding it can be for her to spend time with us too!
