Hay you, have you met Jimmy?

Jimmy is looking for a home as a Project.

A personality miles bigger than his tiny stature and the epitome of cuteness, Jimmy is ready to find his perfect partner who is experienced with youngsters and can continue his education. Due to his young age, Jimmy will need someone able to set firm boundaries and be patient with him as he still has some areas of worry to overcome and some maturing to achieve!
When first having his feet picked up he can produce some small rears so will need someone able to pick up on his warning signs before this behaviour is produced. Jimmy has a very cheeky personality and loves to play, though has been know to give a nip or two so again will need a vigilant and experienced adult to help him overcome and out grow these behaviours.
Jimmy is an affectionate pony who adores human interaction and cuddles; if you itch that sweet spot on his back he will melt and groom you back. He is also very intelligent; quickly picking up if the electric fence is switched off, promptly slipping through to the other side!

Jimmy is a well rounded youngster who has bags of potential to be a fantastic pony with some additional education.

More information:

Description – Jimmy is a 5 year old, 8hh, piebald, gelding Shetland. 

EducationJimmy has had a range of basic training including completion of a handy pony obstacle course with plenty of desensitisation, longlining around the school, working in all three paces with weighted legs on-board; he has been given a great framework for someone knowledgeable to progress with.  

Is the equine good in traffic – including cars, lorries, tractors, motorbikes and bikes?- Jimmy has long-lined down the road and has been good with experiencing cars, bikes, tractors and buggies. 

Stabling/Shelter – Jimmy will stable with a friend in the same stable with him, however he becomes very anxious on his own in a stable and rears. He will happily live out 24/7 with access to a field shelter. 

Forage/Feed –  Monitored grazing to appropriately manage his weight. If he is stabled or grazing becomes too sparse over winter, he is supplemented with low-calorie hay. 

Rugs – Not needed.

Feet – Barefoot and trimmed 6 weekly. He can produce some small rears when having his front feet picked up. 

VicesJimmy can give small bites/ nips on occasion however we believe this will improve as he matures with training. 

Dentist – Sedated as standard Bransby Horses procedure. 

Vet – N/A
