Orphaned foals find new home together
Ginger and Stephen (also known as Stan) came to Penny Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Lancashire last summer after being abandoned in separate incidents. Ginger was especially weak when he arrived and it looked as though he may not survive; however, thanks to the dedicated care of World Horse Welfare grooms and Oakhill vets, he started to improve and eventually reached full health.
Stan arrived shortly afterwards and once both foals had been given the all clear, they moved in together. Luckily, the orphaned foals – who quickly became favourites of both staff and visitors at Penny Farm – became best friends and have been inseparable ever since.
"Luckily the pair became best friends and have been inseparable ever since"
Groom Hayley said: “We’re delighted that we’ve been able to rehome Ginger and Stan as a pair. Since they arrived they’ve been such a great little duo and it’s fantastic that they’re moving to a home where they will get to stay together.
“Of course they’ll be missed greatly at Penny Farm by all of us but it’s important that horses like Ginger and Stan are rehomed as it frees up space for us to help more horses in real need of care and rehabilitation.”
Ginger showed early on that he moves beautifully.
Ginger and Stan moved in together shortly after Stan arrived...
...and quickly became the best of friends.
They celebrated Christmas together...
...and a year on from arriving, the adorable pair have found a home together.
So Ginger will be waving goodbye to some of his old friends!
Good luck Ginger and Stan in your new home!
