I would like to introduce you to Alice (in wonderland) and Annie (the sun will come out tomorrow). As you all know, we are committed to supporting the welfare of the Carneddau Mountain Ponies, who are all having a really good Winter so far, even with the snow challenges, but these 2 older ladies were spotted looking rather thin and weak, so their guardians made a plan, to get them off the mountain for us to collect and give them the extra care they need. Alice’s condition score is currently zero (minus her belly), but, as you can see from the photo, the cause is very evident, she has parrot mouth and with no equine dental technician’s in their wild home, her back teeth have grown in all sorts of directions until she can no longer chew. This is totally fixable, especially with our amazing Vet Luke, who is exceptional at dealing with these little Wildie’s, so she will be on the road to recovery very soon and Annie isn’t as poor, but as an older mare will likely need her teeth doing and a little MOT too.
