About me


Hi my name is Taz and I have recently returned to Burford and am now looking for a new home to call my own.

I have been owned by Blue Cross for a while now and been out in home but have recently returned as my borrowers were struggling to keep my weight down, I am now looking for a home with very little grass and maybe a hard standing area for me to go on to help with my weight. Unfortunately I look at a blade of grass and put on 10lbs!

I am very sweet to handle on the ground but sometimes when I get hungry I will try and drag you to the nearest bit of grass, I don't go anywhere fast but I am strong.

I can sometimes be resource dominant around food this is towards other horses and not people, I happily live in a field with others but if there is feed around I am best placed elsewhere or I will try and gobble up everyone's food.

In the spring/summer I get very itchy the grooms at Burford tell me I am allergic to midge bites so have something called sweetitch, this is managed by wearing a boet rug so they cant get to me and bite me.

I am good for the farrier and vet, and really enjoy lots of fuss and attention, being a companion I can sometimes get forgotten and this makes me sad.

If you are interested in rehoming me 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 Taz 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.
