My name is Kiwi and I came into care with RSPCA a few months ago, due to me previous owner not being able to care for me any more. I have lived with other horses, like my best mate Bobby and love their company.
I am now up to date with all my vaccinations, including Hendra, feet trims and recently had a dental. I float very nicely and travel well. I love a groom and a bath and am becoming more and more like my true self.
I would do best with an owner who understands and can offer me continue training. Jen and the team at Purely Positive Training have been working on building my confidence and I'm improving day by day. I am a gentle horse around other horses, people, kids, dogs and even got to like the Donkey next door.
My foster mum does say I get a excited at mealtimes and can let everyone know to stay away (and herd Bobby away from the feed area), but does not cause any harm, is not aggressive and settles very quickly and will let my mate Bobby eat with him once he settles. Very sharing of his hay. Loves having Bobby close by so would prefer to see them go together if possible, however she thinks I may settle with another horse. I would make a great companion horse.
I was a bit underweight when I arrived at RSPCA and it has taken me a few months to get to tip top conditions. I'm all good, fit and ready to find my new home. i have gained a lot of condition on good feed and regulars worming regime. and also Gastric Aid to help my gut which is all good now.
Best for an experienced owner as Kiwi is still learning to respond to light pressures and follow instructions, but the foster mums 12 year daughter can lead and train him. He loves this quality time. Kiwi likes human contact, can be touched anywhere, nothing phases him! Didn't like his fly mask initially, but now no problem. Kiwi has been very good to vet and farrier. No problems with feet and bathing. Was very good when we had to treat him for a foot abscess after all the wet weather.
kiwi will eat from bucket, graze in paddock or hay net, not fussy. Loves carrots and liquorice! Check out his trick of turning his head to politely request more treats in the videos! He spends most of his time in the paddock walking and eating with Bobby. Overall a beautiful gentle horse with lots of love to give.
