Say hello to Holmes!
Holmes is looking for a home as a non-ridden companion! He is a sweet boy with a very loving nature. He enjoys relaxing with the herd but then coming away with his handler to go for adventures or to be groomed. He can sometimes be cheeky but is never malicious. Holmes will always be your friend for belly rubs and whenever you shout his name his little cheeky face pops up from grazing with the cutest little ears pinned forwards.
Holmes would love a home with a relaxed companion that might enjoy a play every now and then. He likes going out for walks with his friends and is a very clever pony. Holmes can maintain his weight very well so would benefit from a home where his weight can be managed appropriately to avoid laminitis.
