ILPH Bootsies' Boys

When the Fairways Horse Sanctuary, Perthshire closed down at the end of 2000, 28
year old Bootsie, a 7 hand high Shetland pony, and his companion Snudge, were
among the many horses and ponies that were taken to Belwade Farm at Aboyne.

Sadly Snudge died last year and Bootsie, distressed at the loss, went off his food. To
cheer him up the staff at the ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses)
Equine Recovery and Rehabilitation Centre in Aberdeenshire introduced him to a
group of cheeky Shetland foals for company.

Since then Bootsie has gone from strength to strength taking his mothering role
extremely seriously. He rounds his boys up, looks after them and teaches them good

They are all growing up into fine little youngsters and some of them are now looking
for good loan homes as companions. There are 6 shetlands altogether that need
homes which includes some older ones too, in all shapes, sizes and colours.

Anybody wishing to be considered as a loaner for one of these cheeky chappies
should call 0870 873 1927.
