Nutkin is a three-year-old, 12.0hh grey roan gelding who came into our Hall Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Snetterton in 2009 as part of a large welfare case.

His owner had collected various unwanted animals and had far too many to care for properly. Therefore, Nutkin arrived into our care as a very nervous and unhandled colt.

Now though, Nutkin is a real little gem. He is a bright, intelligent pony who is naturally inquisitive and a very quick learner. He has recently been backed at Hall Farm and he has proved to be a star pupil.

Nutkin is such a genuine and honest pony who really tries to please. He is going to make an absolutely adorable child’s pony, although at this stage he is still green so he requires a more experienced child rider with the confidence to further his education. Nutkin will blossom into the perfect pony for a very lucky child who is guaranteed to fall in love with him.

Nutkin has a beautiful temperament. He is always polite and well-mannered and generally easy to handle. He is a friendly chap who enjoys the company of all of his herd.

If you are interested in rehoming Nutkin or you would like to know more about our other fantastic horses ready to be rehomed, please visit www.worldhorsewelfare.org/rehoming, you can call Hall Farm on 01953 499100 or come and chat to staff at Hall Farm any Wednesday, weekend or Bank Holiday between 10am and 4pm.
