Breed: Welsh cross type
Astra came into HorseWorld in August 2015 along with a large group of feral horses – including stallions and mares with foals. As we believed her to be pregnant we paired her up with a couple of other mares we thought were also in foal so they had a settled group. These horses were extremely reactive to people so we were not able to put them through a rehabilitation programme for fear they would hurt themselves and their babies.
Astra gave birth to a strong colt in the spring on 2015 (Sam) and was an excellent mother. He was weaned when 6 months old and Astra has started the slow process of being introduced to people. She has made good progress and is now receiving basic handling and can have her feet trimmed by the farrier. She is a rather beautiful mare so hopefully will go on to find a loving home when ready.
