Purdie is our adorable falabella/shetland cross. She is a palomino, an exceptionally pretty colour and very laid back and sweet in nature. Purdie has a clubbed foot making her unsuitable for any kind of work so has a home for life at Raystede where she will always be safe and cared for. Her disability doesn't hold her back from enjoying life and she can move fast when there might be food on offer!
Ponies like Purdie can be long lived - upwards of 30 years or more. This is a long commitment and the every day bills including bedding, feed and the most basic of vet care are high. Equines like Purdie who cannot work are often euthanized or abandoned as they are considered an expensive luxury if they cannot perform a role. According to the British Horse Society, only 9% of UK Equines will meet a natural death. With your support we can ensure Purdie and others like her will always have somewhere to call home and ensure she is valued for who she is, not her usefulness to people.
Your contribution will help us to continue rescuing and caring for horses, ponies and donkeys in need.
A sponsorship also makes an ideal gift for animal lovers.
THANK YOU for helping Purdie and so many others like her
