History:  Domino is looking for his forever home.  He is a 1 year old cheeky piebald Cob X gelding and is currently 11.2hh so he could grow to anything from 13-13.2hh.Domino was rescued after he had been dumped at a sewage works in Leeds, he was only a young foal and was lonely, bewildered and full of worms and with lots of parasites in his fur. When we first met poor Domino he was very underweight with a bloated tummy due to internal parasites, it was cold and snowy and he was hungry and thirsty.Luckily we managed to admit him into our care where he arrived within a week of another foal, Billy Pickles. Billy was also very lonely and weak, so together they kept one another company. Billy Pickles went to his new home recently, & now its Domino’s turn to find his forever home too.

Behaviour:  Domino is currently being clicker trained to pick his hooves up, he has been trimmed by a farrier before but this still needs work to gain his trust. He is a fast learner and picks things up fast.When first rescued Domino was terrified of everything and difficult to lead, but now he leads nicely and is happy with most things he sees.He is easy to catch in the field, and can be led from place to place safely.Domino is a typical cheeky youngster, he can be nippy occasionally, he still needs some basics teaching.

Veterinary : Domino has had this flu and tetanus vaccinations and he is microchipped & passported. He is a healthy pony and apart from his initial neglect he has never suffered any illness.
____________________________________________________________________________
Potential:   Domino should grow to at least 13hh so has the potential to become a childs pony in the future with the right training.He could be trained to be driven too, he is a blank canvas so has lots of potential.
