Dandy is a cute, chestnut Shetland pony who came to the sanctuary with her friend Bruno in April 2020. Dandy’s two daughters, Summer and April already lived with us here at the sanctuary as their owner was no longer able to care for them correctly. Dandy can be quite nervous and doesn’t like loud noises or exuberant behaviour. She is enjoying a nice quiet retirement.
April is a sassy 8 year old Shetland pony. Her mum, Dandy and half sister Summer are also at the sanctuary. She suffers with Laminitis so is a good one to sponsor if you visit a lot as she is always in her stable in the afternoons. She likes to tell the other Shetlands that she is boss, and some of the bigger ponies too!
Bruno is a beautiful Welsh Sec B gelding. He’s 21 years old. He came to Bleakholt in 2020 with his friend Dandy. He also used to live with April and Summer. He was a very successful show pony in his past but likes the quieter life of eating grass now. He can be a bit ‘nippy’
