Equine best friend: Anna

We received news that a large horse rescue had been forced to make the heart-breaking decision to close as they were no longer able to survive in the economic climate. With over 80 horses in their care, they appealed for other charities to help them via the National Equine Welfare Council of which we are a member – we were delighted to offer a home to two Shetlands, Poppet and Anna.

Poppet is an attractive miniature Shetland and certainly turned the heads of the Shetland boys when she first arrived as she is extremely pretty and delicate! She is a very gentle and sweet pony - from the moment she arrived, she showed a real enthusiasm for spending time with the team and our visitors – she loves a fuss, groom and is happy to be taken for a walk. Her personality and size make her ideal for us to introduce young children or anxious visitors too – she is very calm and friendly. She simply melts the heart of all that meet her and is a wonderful ambassador for the charity. Our community work depends on the personalities of our horses and Poppet is one of the most suitable ponies you could wish to have on your team! We are so pleased that we were able to give Poppet a home when things were looking bleak for her but are also thrilled that we seem to have welcomed a real star into a herd!
