Dalton is a 13hh, four-year-old Welsh Cross, dapple grey gelding who arrived at Penny Farm in February 2018.  He was part of a large herd of completely unhandled ponies (mostly stallions and colts).
Since arriving at Penny Farm, he has made huge progress.  Now he is happy to be led to different stables and other areas of the yard.

In your welcome pack you will find a film on DVD that tells Dalton’s story, a portrait photograph, a pack of notecards, a badge and the most recent written updates and photos from the team at Penny Farm.

We will soon be updating our ‘Adopt a Horse’ scheme to give you a greater insight into the personalities and rehabilitation of the our most vulnerable horses.  As soon as the scheme changes, your Adoption will be transferred to ‘Sponsor a Stableyard’ at your chosen Farm, and you will receive a new welcome pack with your sponsorship details.

Your sponsorship will continue by supporting the horses and foals who require our most sensitive attention and you will personally be helping their rehabilitation with the veterinary treatment, loving care and nurturing that they so desperately need as they progress on their journey to a better future.

Adopting a horse or Sponsoring a Stableyard costs just £5.00 a month and is great way to help give horses the second chance in life they deserve.
