Star is a Percheron x Paint mare, born on 25 December 2016, so she is still a young horse and still has more growing to do. Star came to Joanne in March 2019 and has settled into her new home very well.
Star has constantly amazed Joanne with her easy going personality and her willingness to trust in trying new things. Star would be described as gentle, kind and loves contact with people. As soon as anyone goes into the paddock she always comes up to say hello. You can follow Star‘s progress on Facebook, as she learns new things in preparation for riding when she is older.
Koda is 12 years old and initially belonged to Joanne’s neighbour. He was always hanging around with Spike and since Star’s arrival and two new rescue mini ponies next door, he has officially become Joanne’s second horse and paddock friend to Star.
Koda is a buckskin mini pony and stands at 8.3 hands high. He has some training in natural horsemanship and enjoys a little play online and at liberty, especially if there are treats involved.
Koda likes human contact, although at times it is on his terms. Koda would be described as cute and loveable but also a bit cheeky.
Neo is our big friendly dog and is 6 years old. He is a mastiff cross ridgeback and is super friendly. However, as he is not a pony, he stays out of the paddock during sessions but I’m sure he would love everyone to say hello to him.
Shadow is a 12 year old miniature paint pony. She is only 8 hands high and the smallest and newest member of the herd, as she only arrived in September 2020.
Shadow is a very quiet and gentle pony and has become good friends with Koda, enjoying time together grooming and eating the same hay pile!
