Jimmy was discovered when World Horse Welfare received a call from a concerned member of the public concerning a group of horses who appeared to be neglected and not receiving the care they needed. When Field Officer Jacko went to visit the location he found three horses, one of which was a two to three month old colt, Jimmy, who was trying to suckle off one of the others in the group. Jimmy’s mother was nowhere to be found and as he was so young, he was struggling to survive without her.
Jimmy was taken into World Horse Welfare’s care where he quickly bonded with another abandoned foal of a similar age, Bill. The pair became inseparable and were always to be found playing and exploring the world together. Bill was recently rehomed but Jimmy is still looking for a home as a youngster where he can continue his development and learning about the world.
He’s now a yearling, currently standing at around 12hh and is a bright happy boy who loves attention. He is well behaved, although cheeky, and has the potential to back to ride when he is old enough, so he is looking for a knowledgeable home with a rehomer who has previous experience of bringing on and backing young ponies.
By rehoming a horse or pony from World Horse Welfare, not only will you receive full support and advice from the charity’s experienced team but each horse or pony also comes with a detailed health record and comprehensive, honest description of everything about them. In addition you always have the reassurance that if your circumstances change, you can return the horse or pony to World Horse Welfare at any time.
Rehoming not only gives a very special horse or pony the chance to reach their full potential but you are also enabling the charity to help more horses and ponies in need of help by freeing up much-needed space in its four Rescue and Rehoming Centres.
