Breed: Shetland Pony
Gender: Female
Colour: Black
Date of Birth: 11/02/2013
Adoption Fee: $1500

Coco is a cheeky 8 1/2-year-old, 12-hands high black Shetland mix pony.

Coco has a playful nature and enjoys when humans spend time around her. She is an excellent lead pony for children. She is very good to float and she’s cooperative with lifting her feet and being handled in general. She loves to be brushed and adored by children. Coco has had her health checks and is up to date with her teeth and feet.

Coco required an eye removal at the time of her surrender to Forever Friends due to an untreated ulcer. She’s been recovering well ever since and we’re so proud of how Coco has adapted to life with one eye.

Coco has recently been used as a lead riding pony for children aged between 6 and 10 years. With reduced vision, familiarity of her environment and consistent, gentle handling methods are required at all times. Her forever home owners will need to be her ‘eyes’ at times and be willing to develop secure riding experiences for her.

Coco will require a family who is experienced with horses. She can be possessive of her food and does not like to share the space with anybody when eating. An experienced owner, will continue to work with her on this behaviour change.

If you are interested in welcoming Coco into her forever home, please contact us for more information.
