We urgently need a new home to live out our days in peace.
At Patchwork Ponies we face losing our field via compulsory purchase and we need your help.
We do local visits to care homes and places such as Kilpatrick School, where the children love us and we would love to continue our work.
We need a place to live and run our little enterprise from, as we would love people to come and visit us.
Right now, we can go out to them but we could offer so much more if we had our own place.
Our owner kindly bought us such a place but it looks as if it will be compulsorily purchased from her.
We are all very sad and scared we will get sick and old and have nowhere to call home.
We don’t need a lot of room.
Our owner can work hard to make it a good place if it isn’t 100% suitable right away.
She loves us very much and will do everything she can but she needs some help.
We can’t live on a livery yard as some of us are elderly or have chronic illnesses.
Our owners spend a lot of time and money keeping us well but not everywhere is suitable for us to live.
She needs to be able to visit at night and we are not all allowed to eat grass as it’s very bad for us and we could die if we eat too much.
Meet the Ponies
Whiskey is a rescue pony who has been passed around his whole life.
He deserves a forever home especially now he is getting on and has developed an illness.
Buddy is our oldest who came from a terrible home where he was hit.
He is very scared of new things and also needs medication every day, he can’t eat too much grass or it will kill him.
Morven is scared of new things and has to be very careful what he eats due to a previous incident which left him with a chronic illness.
Charlie Magee had many homes before he was even one year old and although he is a confident little boy, he needs his weight managed or he will get the illness that nearly cost him his life a few years ago.
We are all friends and want to live together with our owner who loves us very much.
We will consider anywhere in West or East Dunbartonshire, we need about an acre, preferably more.
Our owner has money to buy the land but needs someone willing to sell it to her.
If you have a piece of land you don’t need and want to help us, please get in touch.
We can be contacted via Clydesider magazine or via our Facebook pages –Patchwork Ponies or the Saveourfield page.
We can’t read by ourselves but our owner will read all messages and if we approve of the new place she will buy it for us.
Thank you for reading, we hope you can help.
– Buddy (31), Morven (17), Charlie Magee (15) and Whiskey (16) – the Patchwork Ponies.
