Gemma & Beanie

Gemma and her best friend Beanie were originally from Tazmania. Their owners asked us to take them as they were intending to return to Australia and didn’t want to put the girls through the trauma of travelling. Their owners were extremely upset to have to part with them.


Gemma, the older of the two suffers badly from sweet itch in the summer and as well as having cream applied on a daily basis she also wears a fly rug. She is a little bit of a rascal and we constantly find that she has ripped her rug or it has partially slipped off due to her rolling around.


Beanie has Cushings disease and also metabolic syndrome and is on daily medication.


Two lovely, cheeky little miniature horses, they enjoy life at the sanctuary.
