Our cute little pony has already got a large fan club and lots of people have expressed interest in adopting him. He is now provisionally reserved but will be with us for some time while we sort out his problems. X-rays of his feet showed some rotation of the pedal bone after such long neglect, but our farrier, Jaime, is confident that this can be corrected by good trimming. Saltarín is already walking better after his first proper trim.
We were a little concerned that he was not eating his feed. It turned out that he has ulcers in his mouth which are painful. His teeth have obviously never been attended to. He is now getting treatment and daily mouthwashes (he seems to like the taste!).
Saltarín is such a great little character, he has settled into the Centre and loves attention. Someone is going to be very lucky in the future.
