Merlin is a lovely black and white 5 year old 13.2hh heavyweight cob gelding. He has a really kind and quiet temperament which makes him a firm favourite with our visitors.
Merlin came to me as a young foal. He had, we think, been pulled along behind a tractor with a tether line and this had caused him to have a bent and twisted neck.
After many years off therapy and TLC he is very much improved and we are now starting him with some Empathic Horsemanship and Liberty work. It is hoped that in time he will be able to be ridden quietly and used as one of our therapy ponies to help people. In spite of his bad start in life he loves people and attention. Merlin is very happy living out with a shelter at the farm in the company of his best friend Shilo.
