|Emma was owned by a gentleman for 8 years and enjoyed her life with her pal Jessie in an orchard, living a peaceful life and kept as pets. Unfortunately the orchard was then bought by another landowner and they wished to build there and so Emma and Jessie were given 4 weeks to find a new home. Because their owner was a pensioner and could not afford to keep the ponies in an expensive livery yard, he decided to re-home or sell them in a hope that they would find good homes. However the only people interested were dealers and even the meat man enquired. Emma’s owner became desperate to secure a future for his ponies but only had one week left when he contacted us for help. Because Jessie was suffering from Sweet-Itch which required attention and the pair had not been separated for 8 years we agreed to take Emma and Jessie on with the hope of finding them a home together. We had Emma for a year and searched high and low for a good home for both ponies, but had no luck and decided to place them in a foster home until a good home was found. Still after 6 months no home was found so we had to make the decision to bring them both back to the sanctuary and search for separate homes. |
One day we had a call from a lady who had suddenly lost a horse to illness, leaving another one pining for company and desperate for a new companion, it proved to be a beautiful home and the family met Emma and fell in love with her, so Emma went to live in her forever home where she made friends with her new companion in no time. Jessie and her seemed to miss one another at first but soon settled. After such a long wait we are happy for Emma that she has finally found her forever home and has a safe future.
