Stardust came into HorseWorld in 2013 after she was rescued from abandonment along with several other ponies. It was believed that a group of feral ponies were deliberately released onto the roads to cause trouble to the local council. She was pregnant on arrival and soon gave birth to a little filly (Destiny, who is currently available for rehoming!)
Once her foal was weaned, Stardust was given time to recover and was then backed as a riding pony. She has been out on several loan homes and to start with was returning through no fault of her own, but as the homes changed her behaviour under saddle started to deteriorate and on the last ridden home she was deliberately dropping a shoulder to get her little rider off. Due to her small size making her not that suitable as a second pony, the decision was made to rehome her as a non-ridden companion. Sadly, Stardust had to return to HorseWorld from her companion home as she is a greedy pony and they struggled to keep her weight under control.
Stardust is currently undergoing a weight loss and exercise programme and is doing well. She will soon spend some time with the Discovery team to see if she will be happy and suitable working with children. Alternatively, if she prefers a quieter life, we will look for the perfect companion home for her.
