About me

Companion Home to Home

Hi my name is Bankes I am a handsome Thouroughbred Gelding looking for a new home as a Companion.

I am currently out in a Blue Cross home but it seems my unknown past is catching up with me and I am no longer bale to be ridden so I am now looking for a new home as a pampered Companion. I am good to handle in all ways and love fuss and attention. Once I am settled as I currently am in my new home I am happy to be left for periods of time.

My ideal home would be where I am a companion to a horse of similar size and type as me. I do need to have front shoes on as I get sore feet without them.

If you are interested in rehoming Bankes or any other Blue Cross horse/pony, then please click on the *Rehome Me* link. The Blue Cross holds up to 100 horses and ponies at any one time. Even if Bankes is not available please be assured we are still actively trying to find you a suitable match for your needs and we will be in contact as soon as we do.
