Mouse (Minnie Mouse) and Dinky had previously been rescued by two ladies from a field where they had been left to fend for themselves by their previous owners. The two ponies had been once used for pony parties, so were very comfortable with people, but once the business closed, they were placed in a field and neglected. Until they could find them a forever home, the two ladies took them in and started to bring them back to health - they had not had a good diet and their hooves had not been trimmed for a long while so had grown out like slippers – there was a lot to do to get them right again.
After they arrived at Mane Chance, we continued the work to get them well again and their hooves were soon back in good shape. Mouse was initially very quiet and hid behind Dinky, obviously taking comfort in her friend being her protector. But that was until she met Rocky – they have struck up the most amazing friendship and spend most of the day together, playing and mutually grooming – it’s a very sweet friendship. Mouse does love human interaction, and from the moment she arrived, she has enjoyed spending time with our equine and community team, loving lots of fuss – it’s not unusual for Mouse to be involved with our community sessions and both she and our visitors love it!
