Jesse -

Jesse is with us for Retirement however, she's made quite the transformation:

Jesse arrived at PB in 2019 and is our oldest resident at the grand age of 31. Jesse has very little teeth left, so is on a special diet that allows her to eat without trouble. As Jesse has such specific dietary needs, she is on her very own track that runs on the inside of Herd 2's track system. 

Her owner struggled with Jesse's weight and had tried many different feeds and ways to get her to gain the weight back before bringing her to us. She is now on her own grass track (she can pull small amounts) and eats 2 buckets of what we like to call 'slop' a day and a bucket of finely chopped chaff. She is on a low sugar diet which helps keep her feet as healthy as possible and works wonders for keeping her weight on - all while moving around her own track system as she pleases.

Update:

Jesse is now on her track system with best friend Bramble, who also struggles with little to no teeth. They are both doing brilliantly together and are encouraging each other to move. 

Testimonial:

 

'My pony has been part of my daughter's and my own life for 15 years. We have both enjoyed many hours riding her, grooming her and caring for her and she has enhanced our life no end. When it was no longer possible to ride her, some said, she has become too expensive to keep and we should think of having her put down. I was deeply upset by these comments, she deserved the very best care in her old age, yet old as she is, she is still a beautiful, majestic, loving animal. It was at this point Alyson, Julian & Maddie came into our lives and gave her the chance to live out her days in beautiful, caring surroundings.....a place where she can just go back to been 'a horse' again. I couldn't wish for better and although we don't get to see her as often as we would like, she is happy and well cared for and we couldn't wish for anything more.' - Lisa, Jesse's owner
