Say hello to Chamberlain!
Chamberlain is now ready to find a home as a project.
Chamberlain is a very handsome and sweet young man who is looking for an experienced perfect partner to continue with his education to maintain his progress in becoming a well rounded first or second pony. He is a very inquisitive boy who loves to get involved in anything you’re doing. He will need someone able to appropriately manage his weight as he has a history of Laminitis so will need weight management to ensure a reduced risk of this reoccurring. Despite being almost in his teens, he is a very low mileage pony and due to this can display some behaviours you would expect of a much younger pony. If he starts to feel bored he has a history of biting, though he has not displayed this behaviour recently and with a competent handler who can spot the warning signs, this is something he should be able to overcome in a home. It is important to note that the nipping is not malicious, he simply has a young brain on she shoulders of an older pony. He would benefit from boundaries and a routine from day one and has fantastic potential to bring a lot of joy to a child’s life.
