Jimmy is a chestnut pony. He was born in 2004. He came to the sanctuary with his mum Nutmeg. They were both unwanted. Jimmy suffers from laminitis and EMS. He has to have a restricted diet with special feed.
Lilly Dee came to us when her owner was no longer able to care for her. Initially, she was very nervous but is now much friendlier.
Little Joe is a blue roan, miniature Shetland who was found dumped in one of our fields here at Elstree in 2015. We think he was born in 2014. We never did find out where he came from or why he was dumped. Although he is still only small, he has a very big character!
Moli came to us when his owner was no longer able to take care of him due to his medical needs. Moli is blind in his left eye and partially sighted in his right eye.
Noodles is a grey Welsh pony born 01/04/2002. He has lived with Julie for all of his life. He was born blind and his breeder did not want him. Noodles has coped very well with his blindness. He used to be ridden but is now retired.
Swayze is a grey Welsh pony born in 2015. He arrived at the Sanctuary in 2015 as a very poorly young foal, taken too early from his mother. Swayze was so weak that we were lifting him three times a day until his strength returned.
Taro came to us when his owner died. The other ponies were rehomed but Taro was a yearling colt and unhandled. He has some medical issues around his breathing,
Tweenie is a roan/chestnut, miniature Shetland pony. She was born on the 1st May 2004. Tweenie came via a lady who rescued her from a horrendous home where she was burnt and terrorised.
When Julie went to look at a horse with her friend, she found a tiny, frightened foal shut up in a small stable. His owners no longer wanted him so Julie was able to buy him and bring him back to the sanctuary. He was a tiny, skinny little foal but has grown into a beautiful pony.
Shakira is a blue roan, miniature Shetland pony who was born on the 14th March 2007. She came to the sanctuary with a small herd of miniature Shetlands because they kept losing their foals and the owner didn’t know why. When they arrived, shot pellets were found in one of the Shetlands’ face and it was suspected that they had been used for shooting practice (not by the owner) and this was the reason they lost their foals.
Remy is a strawberry roan ‘few spot’ miniature Shetland pony who was born on 6th June 2007, he is registered with the British Miniature Horse Society. Remy came to the Sanctuary an hour before he was due to be destroyed. Remy was a stallion at the time and had been shut in a stable becoming obese. He is a very cheeky pony and will hide in the woods if he knows you want to catch him!
