About Bobbin

Bobbin was removed from negligent owners and then placed with BEHS. He wasn’t handled a lot before coming to BEHS, but he was friendly and came around quickly.  He and his dam, Miss Trinket, were adopted together on 2014/01/17, but they were turned in 2018 through no fault of theirs.

History

Nothing is known of Bobbin’s history before coming to BEHS.

Health / Lameness

Bobbin has no known health or lameness problems.

Other

Bobbin appears to be a miniature horse/Shetland pony cross.

Evaluation and Training

Bobbin’s original foster home says,  “Bobbin learns very fast and is very cooperative. He’s quiet and laid back and wants to make friends with the other horses. I have not observed any behavior problems and I believe he will continue to grow into a great little horse. He shows lots of trust and is brave when introduced to new things and surroundings. He’s very easy to handle and extremely sweet.”

He spent nearly four years serving in a therapy program but was returned when the program changed their focus.  He is not trained to ride but has been handled extensively on the ground and is still a nice age to train.
