Rehome Me: Blackjack
Blackjack was rescued in October 2019 along with 3 other boys. They were all severely underweight and it was obvious that they had very little to no handling. The team at Horseworld worked closely with him to build up his trust with humans and help him gain weight. He has come on in leaps and bounds since being with us, however he can still be slightly nervous and requires a patient and quiet handler.
Blackjack is a young, playful boy who would best suit living with ponies of a similar age so that he can have lots of fun playing with them as this is something he definitely enjoys! He gets on great with other ponies but can only live with geldings as he is a little too keen on mares. He needs to live on semi-restricted grazing to best manage his weight.
He is a very sweet natured pony that is good to catch, can be led on his own or with others, and is good to groom. He is good to have his feet picked out although does require patient handling as he is still young and learning. Blackjack can still be slightly wary of the farrier, but we strongly believe that with time and patience this will improve as he gains confidence and trust in people.
He can be a bit of a cheeky chappy and attempt to push the boundaries but is an extremely handsome chap that has great future potential and would greatly benefit from a loving forever home. He has the potential to become a ridden pony in the future, but due to his size has a maximum rider weight limit of 6 stone.
