Aster

Aster

HOME FOUND

Introducing Aster a 12-year-old, 15 hh Chestnut Arabian X gelding.

Little is known of his history. He has had little handling for the past 6 years, was initially underweight, infested with lice and wary of people - especially being approached past his head or from above.
His first hoof trims, teeth float, vet check and vaccinations have all been completed.
Furthermore, he has gained weight well. Since settling in has become accustomed to other animals, nearby traffic, the carer and some other people.

Aster is gentle but nervous, and he seems to have some knowledge / memory of basic groundwork. He can now be easily caught and groomed, and he leads and ties up well.
He has been good with the farrier on two occasions but still consolidating the handling of his back legs.
Aster is curious and calm with other horses. He has a kind nature and is a fast learner. 
With improving connections it is possible for him to be calm with people in general rather than only with his main carer.
He is comfortable in his body and bright and alert. 

If you are interested in giving Aster a long term care home, get in touch via email with your inquiry. Located Nillumbik Council area.

Maggie May

Maggie May

HOME FOUND

Introducing Maggie May, a 12-year-old, 13.2hh Bay/Taffy pony mare. 


Due to the families change in circumstances, Maggie May is available immediately for Long Term Lease. 

Maggie May has been with us since March 2019, and we got her as a non-ridden companion pony. 

In that time, she has been the perfect companion pony. Happy to be kept in a paddock with other horses, but just as happy to be in her own paddock.
She also has no issues when the other horse has been removed from her paddock, or when horses are taken away from the property for periods of time, or even if a couple of others have been taken away, and she is completely alone. 
She is very good to get her feet and teeth done, and we worm her every three months.
She can be a little wary around the top of her head if it is being touched, but you can put a halter on her and also a fly veil with no issues.
Furthermore, she loves cuddles and of course, loves treats!
Maggie May does have a back injury from before she came to live with us, which is the main reason we were told she is not to be ridden.
She does occasionally get a stiff movement in her back legs after standing for a while but once she takes a step or two the stiffness disappears, and this has never seemed to cause her any discomfort

Home Found

She in short term care and is progressing with her rehabilitation while losing some weight, and she has all her health needs attended to - dental/farrier etc.  
Netty went to be assessed  and is  being a managed as a green-started horse despite her being started somewhere in her life.
Good on ground and very responsive to voice.
Need to consolidate the bridling and work under saddle.
It appears that she was not mouthed correctly at the start and this is being addressed by the trainer.
Certainly a lovely mare that has a future with a knowledgeable home.
