All the horses and ponies are well over this past week. Our two coloured 2-year olds, Frankie and Freddie are still looking for suitable foster homes. Frankie and Freddie are currently being handled and socialised and are coming on well. If you are interested in having Frankie or Freddie (or both), become part of your lives and have the necessary experience and facilities to bring them further on, please get in touch with Carole.
