12 ponies of Christmas: ‘sensitive and smart’ gelding seeks new home

  • Could you give Ciffig Solar (Solar) a loving new home?

    The 13hh gelding is the next pony to feature in our ’12 ponies of Christmas’ series.

    Two-year-old Solar came in to World Horse Welfare’s care in May 2016 with a small group of others whose owner could no longer provide the care they needed.

    He is now looking for a home experienced with bringing on and handling youngsters.

    “Solar is a very intelligent and sensitive little man who has proven to be a quick learner and mastered his basic handling skills,” said a World Horse Welfare spokesman.

    “Solar would love a home with other geldings where he could keep building his confidence and learning.”

    Solar is at World Horse Welfare’s Glenda Spooner Farm in Somerset.

    The charity has been taking in a large number of youngsters like Solar in recent years.

    World Horse Welfare currently has 43 foals in its care — 23 of which were born this year in World Horse Welfare’s care.
