Meet Tavish

Share this profile

Tavish is a cute little micro-cob who is ready to get up to lots of mischief in a new home. Tavish can initially be a little tentative but will be raking through a new person's pockets in less than a minute, his cheeky, friendly side is never hidden for long. He has not been blessed with good conformation or movement so cannot be ridden but will make a fantastic companion. Tavish is naturally inquisitive so doesn’t like to leave anything alone and is very playful. He adores attention and likes to follow everyone around the field in the hope that he will be brought in for a pamper. Tavish will fidget if left alone whilst tied up but stands well when he is being brushed, he feels he should always be the centre of attention. He will need someone experienced to take him on loan as he is still quite young and can have a short attention span. Tavish is sensible for vet or farrier visits however takes a lot of confidence from his handler. He is extremely sociable and very playful so older horses may find him quite tiring, other lively ponies would be a perfect match for him. Tavish is used to living in a herd and would become very stressed if left alone. He has diastema so will need his teeth checked by a vet or qualified equine dentist every six months for him to remain comfortable. Tavish will need a home where his weight will be monitored and grazing restricted accordingly. The group of ponies he arrived with have had a high incidence of PSSM so managing Tavish’s condition is essential. If you think handsome wee Tavish is the right character to join your gang, please submit an online application.

Important stuff

Tavish can never be ridden or driven.

All equines in our centres are regularly assessed by a team of experts including a vet, physiotherapist and farrier, and these assessments have found that Tavish is not suitable to be worked.

History

Tavish came into World Horse Welfare care with a large group of cobs in July 2022. He was one of the most nervous from the group on arrival at Belwade Farm.
