Cornish Sanctuary for rescued Bodmin Moor Ponies......
BODMIN MOOR PONY
Another happy herd settled in..
This is a little herd of rescued Moorland ponies. When we collected them they were all in very poor condition, starved with body scores between 0.5 and 1. They have been successfully rehabilitated. After months of our care they are now enjoying their new life as a natural herd on the moor in their foster home.
Documentary to be made of our work on the Moor and other other wonderful rescues..
Two very special friends Gaëlle Mourre and Irene Gomez Emilsson came all the way down from London to visit Shires Holt meeting friends, supporters and of course our horses to shoot a documentary about the work we do. Thank you ever so much. We are very grateful and very excited.
ESSENTIAL FENCING MAINTENANCE

In memory of our dear Valiant
Our gorgeous fellow Valient who is at least 26 years young, he has been with us 18 years. Was having a lovely time today in the lovely sunshine.
The welfare work continues..
It is absolutely essential that we maintain these natural pony herds. It is just not enough to rescue a handful and domesticate them in stables. Although that is important for the well being of the individual pony, we must not neglect the countless others. We have found mixing feral with domesticated horses that the ferals gained much confidence quickly and become very easy to handle, it has worked beautifully.
