Meet the Horses
Gizmo (Stable Name)
Full Name – Eiger Goulash
Born – 10.04.2004
Breed – Shetland
Colour – Skewbald
|Known History – Gizmo came to AJ in March 2009
AJ received a phone call from a lady who was divorcing and moving to Lincolnshire. The woman had 4 horses but could only afford to take the 2 ridden horses with her as they would no longer be kept at home to roam free around the garden but would instead be on Full Livery.
Gizmo soon settled in as part of the team, what Gizmo lacks in size he makes up for in character. A real life Thewell pony!!!!
Kirbie (Stable Name)
Full Name – Ilkerton Kirbie 265/23
Born – 2008
Breed – Exmoor Pony
Colour – Bay
|Known History -Lived on Exmoor all his life until October 2011, where he moved to Combe Martin. He has only known Natural Horsemanship, born and bred by a local he was handled as a foal to be inspected by the Exmoor pony breed society and to be branded. Nikki Hackett Read fell in love with Kirbie when she worked with him on this course and purchased him with a view of him remaining on the moors. When his herd was sold he came to AJ and was given to her daughter on her christening by her godmother Nikki.
Kirbie settled in lovely and made great friends with both Jack and Gizmo, he has a very cheeky way about him. He often thinks he is still living on the moors but once he is at work he becomes very grown up and is a pleasure to play with.
