We recently had some beautiful foals in for handling from pony keepers Tracey Lear and Mark Northway.  They went through out intensive 3-4 day basic handling training at the Centre, going from completely untouched to well started.

They can now be caught in the round pen, brushed, feet picked out and trimmed with rasp and will follow a bucket. We take them to first stage of handling - perfect for conservation grazing roles. These have proven to be some of the quietest and most gentle foals - they must have had lovely mums and a great dad! Super examples of the true moorland bred little Dartmoor - tough and hardy, but with the potential to excel in any sphere.

The boys have yet to be gelded so will not be available for sale until after that has happened, which will be around April/May.  The DPHT pays for the castrations of all its pony keepers’ colts. Mind you, our team were so taken with the two boys that we are wondering whether we should keep one ourselves, send it to our Moorland site at Bellever to grow on for the next few years, then see if he will suit our ‘Ponies Inspiring People’ equine assisted learning programmes!

The girls are a bit older at approx 8 months, so while they have lots of growing and developing to do, they are back at the farm and for sale - £150 each - already microchipped, passported, wormed and ready to start their new lives.

Gorgeous babies - do you know someone who could give them a home and a great start to their lives? Call the DPHT on 01626 833234 ; we will give you more information and put you in touch with their owners.
