History:  Rosie is a very pretty pony who came to HorseWorld in April 2004 as a feral youngster along with 15 other very nervous ponies. They had been rescued from some common land that had been used for grazing but the owners had not provided for the ponies and many had starved to death.Rosie went through basic rehabilitation to receive routine handling, but as she was quite a sharp pony she never progressed to being ridden but was rehomed as a companion pony.

Use:  Companion only

Behaviour:  Rosie is now very used to being handled and for the most part you could not guess at her beginnings. She does not seem to mind being left alone so may make a good companion to a ridden horse. However she still will require a home extremely experienced with looking after ponies with metabolic issues and will need suitable grass free turn out during spring, summer and autumn.

Veterinary : Since reaching maturity Rosie has been prone to laminitis and has metabolic issues and will need suitable grass free turn out during spring, summer and autumn.
