A few hours ago we waved goodbye to Gazza (Gasparin), a pony taken in by us when his owners thought there was no other option for him but the abattoir. Gazza was severely overweight and was suffering from laminitis when we collected him, he could barely walk anywhere and spent most of his first few days with us laid down. He was put on a carefully controlled diet and with time, having had his overgrown feet attended to, we were able to start gently exercising him.
Gazza has now been adopted by Linda from the Correze and will be living with her lovely mare Beleza, who sadly lost her old companion a short while ago….as had Gazza in his previous home. We look forward to hearing all about how Gazza gets on in his new life and we feel privileged to have been able to help such a kind and gentle pony.
