Currently also resident within the sanctuary are Willow, Larry, Eric,Beanie and Luya
Jimmy & Beau after their breakfast!
Jimmy had been a National Hunt chaser in his time with a few good results along the way. After losing stamina and getting older he began to be passed from home to home until the old horse had spiralled down from his past glory ending up in a bad way, abandoned in a field throughout the 2004/5 winter with no one checking him other than some people who became more and more concerned about his condition.
Chadd, now 24, has been with us since he was around 4 years old.
From an abusive past he had lost trust and faith in humans and it took
almost 3 years before we could catch him easily and lead him safely.
Here is Fred, reg Section A Triad Flashback,
Fred is 18 years now and he is still in the sanctuary due to health issues,
In the past Fred has had severe sweet-itch but is now far
less afflicted as he grows older. More of a problem is his severe heart defect,
Fred has a grade 4 murmur which causes him to get out of breath very quickly when being ridden or when stressed.
Fred was backed as a youngster was ridden out from the sanctuary when his halth allowed.
Although he has a butter wouldn't melt in his mouth look he can still be a little thug!
