Shetland pony, Bob, is an ex-Riding for the Disabled pony. Bob worked with disadvantaged children and lived for more than 10 years with his private owner.
He was a star of the “Look! I’m Talking!” children’s educational DVD presented by actress Jane Horrocks, the well known “Tesco Mum”. Bob is featured under “H” for Horse!
Bob suffers from severe Sweet Itch, or Summer Seasonal Recurrent Dermatitis (SSRD), a problem that affects thousands of horses, ponies and donkeys, and is controlled and managed well by the team at The Horse Trust.
Bob is a very happy, friendly and lovable pony who adores people.
