Young ponies Frodo and Gandalf are fast approaching their first birthdays and both have the same wish - to find their happily ever after in a new home together.
When they arrived at Blue Cross’s Burford rehoming centre seven months ago the best friends, who were rescued together, were not used to being around people and had had very little handling.
But the pair, who are 11 months old, have come around very quickly and are now firm favourites with the team as they are so well behaved.
Blue Cross is now looking for an experienced owner who can take Frodo and Gandalf, named after Lord of the Rings characters, as a pair or rehome them with other ponies as they need ongoing education due to their age.
Vicki Alford, Horse Unit Manager at Burford, said the pair should make lovely riding ponies in the future but will make brilliant companions in the meantime.
She said: “Frodo and Gandalf have come on a long way since being here and are firm favourites with the volunteers as they are so well behaved and have such nice natures.
“Although they are good to handle they are still looking for an experienced borrower with other young ponies due to their young age who can give them the ongoing education they need to best prepare them for being riding ponies one day.
“We do hope they get their birthday wish come true for their first birthday.”
