July 2016: WH Pepper, whilst having a history with laminitis, through regular treatment is doing well! Pepper has been used as a lead-lone pony but with further training could be a great kids pony- however not for beginners.
February 11th 2016: What an awesome little pony little WH Pepper is turning out to be! She is the quickest learner, and though we don't have photos with volunteers Megan and Mel working with her, here is a snapshot of how she is going, which is very much a team effort, with Eliza, Jadae, Megan and Mel all working gently with this divine girl. WH Pepper has had a laminitis history, but barefoot trimmer, Rick, of Geelong Barefoot, has started her regular trimming, and her diet has now seen a good bye to her crusty neck, and a more healthy figure is now evident. What a welshie!
October 31st 2015: Little cheeky Welshie, WH Pepper, was also being assessed by Chris Giles last Sunday. Unfortunately we didn't get to see much of her in action as she showed up with stifle lock for the first time since being in the care of The Winged Horse, so she managed to avoid any training that day
February 8th 2015: Update on new girl WH Pepper - she is getting her Welshy attitude on, and loves her new paddock, who she is sharing with a private horse. Pepper seems to enjoy working with kids too - one of our volunteers, Megan, and Jadae and Eliza, are all getting to know her.
January 11th 2015: Newbie, WH Pepper, who is settling in beautifully - she is enjoying the contact with folk, and exercise and handling. She is not trained to saddle as far as we know, but is interested in the groundwork our volunteers have been doing with her. Her first defence is rearing, but once she realises you mean her no harm, she is fine!
December 22nd 2014: Welcome to newly surrendered welshy lady, WH Pepper! Pepper is a dear little mare, she has foundered in recent times, & will be "Jenny Craiging" it over the Xmas break. She has had a very nasty experience with a farrier (no names, but happy to mention who we do recommend), where she was physically flipped, rendering her very unsure about her feet being handled. A very clever pony indeed- straight off the float, once she worked out we were not going to hurt her, she offered her feet willingly for inspection.
