Hopper is now ready to find a new home as a non ridden companion, due to not standing up to being worked. He is a very friendly pony, who loves attention. He is very good to handle in and out of the stable, groom, bath and for the vet and farrier. Hopper has had laminitis in the past prior to arriving with us, so he needs his grazing and weight managed accordingly. He is currently living out with shelter, and comes in during the day to help manage his weight. He gets on very well with other ponies of all sizes, but doesn't like being on his own, so it is important he has company at all times. If you can offer Hopper a home, please apply online.
Hopper 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 Hopper is not suitable to be worked.
Hopper came into Penny Farm after he was found with severely overgrown hooves.
