Hay you, have you met Blueberry?

Blueberry is now looking for a home as a non-ridden companion.

Blueberry is a sensitive soul who can become easily unsettled with change however he has a truly beautiful personality which really shines through once he knows and trusts you. He is very playful with the younger ponies in his herd and loves a good fuss.

He is looking for a Perfect Partner who can perfectly balance allowing him to take time to adjust to his new surroundings, whilst not allowing him to set the terms of the relationship- if he knows he can get away with it he will make use of avoidance tactics to get out of things he doesn’t fancy doing.
Moving to a new home is likely to unsettle Blueberry somewhat so will need time and patience to adjust to his new surroundings and routine. We are looking for someone within a short distance of Bransby Horses as Blueberry can become very stressed when travelling long distances; he has suffered with gastric ulcers in the past so we are seeking someone able to provide him with a stress-free life to keep them at bay.
