Who's Who & Picture Gallery

Robin our blind little Shetland pony who along with his partner Rosie (who sadly passed away a few years ago) came to the Sanctuary many years ago has sadly passed away.  He lost his companion for many years, Jess who made sure he was always ok, but she herself was very elderly.  It was very sad but he had many happy years at Southcott being well looked after and very spoilt.  We have no idea how old he was, but do know that he probably was one of our oldest equines along with Jess so probably heading for 40 years old.   Lola, Sian's daughter groomshim and takes him for a walk, makes sure he eats his food -  What stars they both are. 

 

Snowflake and Rudolph, two brothers saved by Roland from the sales in Tavistock a few years ago whilst being filmed by the BBC for a programme called Animal 24/7 along with Cracker who is at our other sanctuary in France.  They are ready now to be broken in and will make great little riding ponies. 

A very sad day at the sanctuary at the beginning February Jess a grand old lady of 41  was put to sleep.  Time had eventually caught up with her.  The Sanctuary will never the same again and everybody was there to say good bye.  She had returned to the sanctuary after many happy years out on loan.  She was loved by a lot of children (now adults) who still come and see her.  

Bella has returned to the Sanctuary after many happy years out on loan.  Thank you Lucy for taking such good care of her

Ann with Snowflake and Rudolph who are so lucky not to have ended up as dog food!!

Fiesta with Ann.  Fiesta was abandoned starved and neglected with terrible injuries to her legs from being hobbled by wire and raced on roads alongside all the cigarette burns to her body.   She is now Anne's pride and joy as she has managed to gain Fi's trust in humans again.
