In November 2011, Brinsley Animal Rescue was contacted about a very distressing case. Over 60 ponies, including some mares in foal, had been found in serious neglect. Thankfully through the help of other larger organizations we were able to recover them, and the owner: prosecuted. Brinsley Animal Rescue took on two little colts – Casper being one of them.
Casper is a bold and confident pony who can also be labelled as nosey! He needs to be reminded for his manners at times as he can come across as “bolshy”. Easy to catch in the field, okay to be lead and loaded; Casper can be a little sensitive around the farrier but is strangely okay with the vet and dentist! He is well behaved in traffic and really loves a good groom and fuss. If you scratch the right place (mainly the withers) he starts to smile!
Health Concerns or Issues
No concerns present or future
Suitable Loanee / Home
Casper has received all his vaccinations and is up to date with his dental. He comes with his passport and needs a home that can further on his training (to be backed) or he could make a very sweet companion pony.
