||Five years old|
||Traditional Gypsy Cob|
is special to me because I bought her as a rescue. She had strangles,
which is a life threatening illness horses get to the point they have to be
isolated from all horses. Amber also lost five times her body weight. She was
beaten in to do things, until I came along on the 1st of January 2013. Since
then we have both been inseparable.
I bought her as a seven-year-old, yet when I had a vet out to check if she was
pregnant (as she was showing signs) they said she wasn't, and she was only three.
At that point I felt so bad as I had been working her, jumping her but she
never said no she kept giving and giving. So when I found out her true age I
let her rest for a while and now she is coming along really nicely. She had
never seen a school before I had her. she wouldn't even move. Now all I need
to do is tell her what to do, there's no need to kick her on, she does it
with pleasure. She always has her head held high now.
It is amazing how this girl is as sweet and as well behaved as she is,
considering her background and being so young. She is one amazing pony and I
would not change her for the world! The one photo is of her about one month
after I got her, you can see she is still underweight, the rest are her now,
as the happy healthy girl she was always meant to be!
