Frodo and Gandalf make a birthday wish - to find a forever home

Youngsters Frodo and Gandalf have the same birthday wish this year… to find their happily ever after in a new home.

ponies Frodo and Gandalf.

When they first arrived at Blue Cross Burford seven months ago the ponies, who were rescued together, were not used to being around people and had had very little handling.

But staff at the centre say the pair, who are 11 months old, have come around very quickly and are now firm favourites at the site as they are so well behaved.

The pet charity is now looking for an experienced owner who can take Frodo and Gandalf as a pair or rehome them with other ponies as they need on-going education due to their age.

Vicki Alford, Blue Cross Burford horse unit manager, said the pair should make lovely riding ponies in the future but equally would make brilliant companions in the meantime.

She said: “Frodo and Gandalf have come on a long way since being here and are firm favourites with the volunteers as they are so well behaved and have such nice natures.

“Although they are good to handle they are still looking for an experienced borrower with other young ponies due to their young age who can give them the on-going education they need to best prepare them for being riding ponies one day.

“We do hope they get their birthday wish come true for their 1st birthday.”
