Hoofbeats is an initiative of I Give A Buck Foundation of Australia Ltd (IGAB) – a children’s charity fully endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient. All donations of $2 or more made to the Hoofbeats Program are tax deductible.
Lucy is an adorable 15yo mini pony that has clearly had a less than ideal life before finding her way to Hoofbeats in March 2019. She has had many foals over the years, came to us with a 2-week old foal at foot and is very likely pregnant again since she was housed with a stallion at the time.
Lucy is very wary of people – especially men – and particularly if we are holding anything. It is clear from her behaviour that she has been physically abused and we are working hard to gain her trust and teach her that she has only positive human interactions in her future with us.
Lucy arrived with a number of health issues and horrible teeth problems – all of which have now been taken care of. She is incredibly sweet and very vocal at feed times – giving us a loud and exited nickers until it arrives.
