WILLOW

Breed: Trotter
Gender: Gelding
Colour: Dark Bay
Height: 14hh (still growing)
D.O.B May 2019

Willow came to the sanctuary in May 2019, only about a week old, after being relinquished to us via the RSPCA, along with 10 other trotters including his mother, Cherry. They were all in terrible condition; emaciated, neglected and terrified of humans. Cherry unfortunately had to cross rainbow bridge in October 2019 as it was discovered she was suffering from an incurable condition called fistulous withers.

Willow is good to handle in general but would really benefit from some consistent one to one handling. At present he is too young physically and mentally to commence ridden training but will benefit immensely from ground work, walks in hand and lots of reassurance with new experiences. This handsome boy has a LOT to give to his potential fosterer and will go far in the right hands. Someone with previous experience with sensitive youngsters would be ideal for him.

Someone who is in no rush to ride and will work at Willow’s pace.
