Meet Woolly

Add to favourites

Wooly is a sweet little 3 year old mini, who is recovering in foster after coming into our care through our animal protection work. She was emaciated, and under socialized when she arrived to her foster. Now, after a few months of good food and some TLC she is improving every day.

Wooly is fearful of touch and hasn’t had much training prior to her time with us. In foster, sha has been introduced to positive reinforcement techniques, which encourage desired behavior through rewards and praise. This approach creates a trusting and positive learning environment, making training sessions enjoyable for both horse and owner and helping Woolly build trust and comfort with people.

Woolly is looking for a patient and dedicated guardian who will continue to help her gain confidence and help her progress with her training. Woolly is living with with her companion, Mammoth. Although it would be nice for them to find a home together, we are open to adopting them out separately as long as there are other equine companions for them to bond with.

Miniature horses, like Woolly and Mammoth, have unique health considerations due to their size. Miniature horses require a specialized diet and are not suited to grazing on rich pasture as it can lead to laminitis and other related health issues. Instead, they require controlled access to pasture or alternative feeding methods. Due to their small stature, even a slight weight gain can have a significant impact on their health, so monitoring their weight and exercise is crucial. Like any other horse, they still need regular hoof and dental care to ensure they are healthy and happy.
