About me

Hi There, My name is Rupert! I am looking for a home as a non – ridden companion.

I am good with the vet and the farrier and enjoy lots of fuss and attention from the grooms.

I will happily live in or out however due to my type I will need my grazing restricted and weight monitored especially during the spring and summer months.

In the spring and summer I get very itchy, the grooms tell me I am allergic to midge bites so have something called sweet itch, this is managed by wearing a fly rug, mask, being kept away from still water and being stabled during dusk and dawn.

If you are interested in rehoming Rupert 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 Rupert 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.
