Marvin came to us as a desperate colt foal, discovered by one of Northumberland County Council’s Animal Welfare Team. He had been abandoned – left tied to the railings of a derelict school, with two others, who we named Doogie and Donald.
Their filthy, matted coats barely disguised their skeletal little bodies. Riddled with lice and suffering from a heavy roundworm burden, they quickly lay down together in the deep straw bed, munching quietly on hay. It’s always good for the team at times like this, to know they have found a bit of horsey heaven.
Marvin has been with us for five years now, stands 13.2hh and was started under saddle this summer with the team at Robinson’s Equiteach. He has matured into quite a character – a real attention seeker. If he was human he would be Jim Carey – mildly irritating but always good for a laugh!
Marvin will be ready for our Loanie Pony Scheme soon and we look forward to finding his perfect partner.
