Blue Cross animal rehoming centre in Rolleston is looking for a home for a sweet pony called Doughnut who returned to the charity in January after a spell on loan.
He is a 21-year-old native grey pony looking for a home where he will meet other similar aged ponies to bond with.
When Doughnut returned to the centre he was diagnosed with some cancerous cells in his right eye necessitating the removal of the eye. It has healed well and Doughnut has adapted comfortably to having just one eye. He is good to catch, groom and lead and is looking for an experienced home who can manage his Cushing's disease and laminitis. He needs restricted grazing all year round to keep him well.
Verity Anderton-Johnson said: “Doughnut is a lovely pony who loves company. He is good with herd environments and once settled could be left alone for short periods of time. He deserves a home where he is loved and can meet some new friends.“
