In April 2009 I decided to react to an advert I saw for a little pony , I knew he was thin but wasn't quite prepared for the sight of the poor fello



apparently the owners had bought him for their children when their neighbour was moving and leaving him behind. When I first saw him he was stood next to a large round bale of hay that had been there ages and gone manky , he clearly had lots of coat falling out and bad feet and a depressed look on his face , riddled with lice but already it was clear he is very kind loving pony
After the negotiating bit I said I'd take him home asap ... no hurry they said :Smile but I couldn't leave him there any longer than necessary and hired a trailer that evening . The brave little man hopped into the trailer for the 20 minutes back home

here he is with Emma and Bichette



The following morning armed with parasite shampoo I got him into the polytunnel ( solarium Very Happy ) for a good wash down



that seemed to do a good job against the lice and so the next job was to give him a good brush with my friend Lyn who came especially to help with him armed with Frontline spray

Heres Lyn ( the groom with the grand national hopeful that shrunk in the wash Wink )

It's amazing what a wash brush up and some feed can do! Well done!

Yes and often its the worming that makes the biggest difference Smile
Panacur Guard 5 day course is really good for equines with unknown worming history

That's amazing!..........that's what it's all about, and he looks so content and 'unworried' by anything! He's a gorgeous little chappie I love you
and I can't wait to see the summer coat on him this year!
