We introduced our new arrivals Tomahawk and George earlier this year. The Mare and Foal Sanctuary recently caught up with Tomahawk and George’s former owner so she could share more details about the pair’s life before they came to us.
You may remember that their former owner had experienced a personal crisis which meant she could no longer easily get to the yard on a daily basis to care for her much-loved ponies and was relying on other family members and good friends. She realised the crisis wasn’t going to be resolved quickly and, concerned for her equines’ welfare, contacted the Mare and Foal Sanctuary for advice and support.
Tomahawk was his owner’s first pony. The skewbald Shetland’s playful character and cheeky habits means he is a real force of nature. He loves to play with space hoppers and other enrichment toys and has been known to tip a wheelbarrow or two.
Tomahawk and his owner were later joined by George, a bay cob. George has a very sensitive nature and always knows when his human companions need some moral support.
