Say hello to Parsnip!
Parsnip is now ready to be rehomed as a non-ridden Companion.
Parsnip is an eye-catching gentleman with good looks in abundance. He has a sweet and passive temperament and can find himself getting worried in new and unfamiliar situations. We have found that with a calm and patient handler who is willing to build a bond, he takes confidence from you and finds himself much braver!
He loves a good fuss and pamper, and is especially fond of giving his handler muddy kisses in return for a scratch on that hard to reach itchy spot. Parsnip truly is a special boy who we have no doubt will blossom in a one to one home.
Parsnip can get especially worried with the farrier so will need a gentle approach and an understanding patient farrier to help build up his trust.
