Adopt Me: Burdock

Burdock is 10.1hh liver chestnut Shetland pony gelding. He was rescued as a youngster, covered in burrs and burdocks.


Burdock is the smallest pony up for adoption!

Burdock was rescued in 2002 as a youngster, covered in burrs and burdocks. After he was rescued it was discovered that he has a heart murmur and so would never be ridden. He is one of the Shetland ponies in the Discovery team.

He is a fun cheeky little pony, who is very popular with the students. He is very good to be handled, groomed and long reigned. However, he has been known to wander off to the hay barn or grass verge for a quick snack with an unsuspecting student in tow, but only occasionally.
