Equine best friend: Lili

Seren (Welsh for star) was one of four Welsh mares that came to Mane Chance together after we had been contacted by World Horse Welfare, who were looking for a home for them to go to without being separated.  They had been living in a field and had largely fended for themselves, so had had very little human connection and needed a home where they would be worked with slowly and patiently.  The only difference for Seren is that she was not born in the field with the others – she was bought (for the price of a lunch!) from a traveller and put in the field to live with the others.  The bond is nevertheless as strong as if she had been blood related and Seren takes on a senior role in the herd as protector.  She has a lovely personality and is eager to try new things once she knows that she is safe, so she has been an important part of the rehabilitation process of these horses.  Her loyalty to the others is admirable and she definitely takes the role of herd leader.  But this doesn’t affect how gentle and calm she is with us and she is a great role model for the rest, often showing them how to be more confident and less wary of new things!
