Ziggy was found wandering with a mare in Cranleigh in the Spring of 2016. Unusually, he had shoes on, so the young lady that had taken him home temporarily tried in vain to see if there was an owner missing either of them, but it appeared not – and neither were microchipped unfortunately. A forever home was found for the mare but Ziggy was a stallion and it is hard to find a home for them. So he came to Mane Chance and was gelded but despite this, he is led by his hormones, even though biologically, he shouldn’t be! Bless him! He does like to strut around the fields and the tracks, flicking his mane and showing off to the girls. But the girls in his herd have realised that this is all show and fake bravado and to be honest, they don’t really respond at all now so his attempts are thwarted and his pride a little dented. It doesn’t seem to deter him though…..

At the beginning of the year, we introduced Diamond to the herd, an ex-dressage horse.  Ziggy was immediately attracted to her and put on his best stallion behaviour to impress the new girl.  But she is a little stronger in personality that he bargained for and her attentions were instead turned to Berry, a slightly more mature gentleman, rather than teenage Ziggy.  So he had a sharp lesson to learn and he backed off a little, but to his surprise, she then came to find him – such fickle creatures they can be!  Treat them mean, keep them keen springs to mind and Ziggy had that played to perfection!
