Christina Scarlet came to the Sanctuary in February 2011, along with her companion Little Gerry. Christina is an Exmoor pony around 7 years old, is 12.2hh and has timid but sweet nature.
Pablo’s was contacted about a little grey pony (Little Gerry) which needed to be removed from it’s rented field (as notice had been given) and was due to be sold at Melton Mowbray Horse Sales in one week’s time. On arrival at the field to look at the pony, it was found that the grey pony had a companion whose fate was to be the same, so Christina was offered Sanctuary as well.
Not much is known about Christina and Little Gerry’s backgrounds only that their previous owners had purchased them 2 years ago in a bid against the meat-man at the Melton Mowbray Horse Sales. Both were then transported to a field in Melton Mowbray until their owners were given notice to remove both ponies from their rented fields. As both these ponies were undomesticated their options for a new home were very limited and were due to go back to the Melton Mowbray Horse Sales.
We are very pleased that Christina has found a lovely foster home, now spending her time in a group of other mares. Little Gerry is still at Pablos, and still looking for his new foster home.
