Hi there, my name is Starling and I’m a 15 year old grey Welsh mare who came to the centre in summer last year. I have since become a favourite amongst the staff here due to my quirky character. I’m approximately 13hh, but I like to think I’m at least 20hh.
I used to be a broodmare but I am now looking for a quieter life as a non ridden companion pony. Although I can sometimes be a bit bossy, I am very good for the farrier and stand nice and still while he tends to my needs. I’m also great to catch and have lovely lead rein manners, leisurely surveying my kingdom as I’m led in from the field.
I enjoy being groomed and pampered, the staff here at the centre seem to do this a lot, I know I’m a grey but I have always had aspirations of being a bay. I do so love a muddy patch to roll in! I hear it’s good for the skin.
I am turned out full time here at the centre and am quite happy munching away in all weathers. I’m also fully passported and vaccinated ready to put my best hoof forward for a new, loving family.
Could that family be yours?
