Date of Birth: late 1997
Gotcha Day: 05/10/1998
Breed: Shetland Pony
Our founder lived on a property in Belgium with four horses and decided she would try to integrate Charly with the others. He was so small that she was able to get him and put him in the back of her car, like a dog.
He was not even a year old when he got there and was instantly given supplements and vitamins used for race horses to develop his muscles and give him strength. Charly was deliberately kept whole as long as possible, because it reinforces their personalities and their psyche. Contrary to his previous home, he was not living with ponies but with full-size horses who were very kind to him and accepted him as part of the herd. So much so that Charly is since sure he is a tall horse, but we’re not going to tell him he’s actually a dwarf pony. If he identifies as a horse, we respect that.
