Today I went to meet Bugsy, who is a potential companion for my Highland pony, Smokey. Bugsy is a 9 year old, chestnut Shetland gelding who belongs to a friend of mine. Judy and I met through our involvement some years ago with Parelli Natural Horsemanship.

Bugsy was rescued when he was about two; he was kept with two other horses and was badly neglected and abused. The other two horses had to be euthanased after the court case. But Bugsy landed very lucky and ended up with Judy, who, with her chum Carrie, has spent a lot of time rehabilitating him.

He is a delight! I was able to have a little play with him on-line and he's very light and responsive to feel and to voice commands. He's been longlined and dragged a tyre and Judy hopes that we'll be able to give him a job around the new holding.

I'll go back and see him again soon, then hopefully we'll be able to introduce him to Smokey. If they get along, then he'll be coming with us to the Angus coast to collect seaweed and the shopping. More on that later!
