Wildfire was a beautiful gelded pinto pony that came to the sanctuary in July 2009. Wildfire came to the sanctuary with his paddock companion Molly as their human owners seperated. When Wildfire arrived he was already 21 years old. Wildfire was the paddock boss and was known for his pushy ways of getting a pat and keeping the other ponies in order.
He was good with the farrier and vets but was prone to flatulence at inappropriate times which always gave those around him a good laugh.
Wildfire passed away on the 15th June 2015 at the age of 27. He went peacefully with the help of the vet whilst laying in Jacqui’s arms.
36 years of age
The only member of Big Ears that is an agistment is beautiful Crackers. He is 36 years old and living his golden years with us. His mum visits regularly and finances his 3 special meals a day. Crackers is pictured here with a dear Big Ears friend – Jake.
Crackers passed away on 18 April 2010 from a stroke. He is remembered as a gentle boy with a very big heart.
Spike the pony is now available for sponsorship for $200.00 which will go towards the cost of his hoof trimming, dentistry and worming for a 12 month period.
Louise the mini pony arrived at Big Ears in April 2014 after her human mother passed away and Louise and her friends needed to find somewhere to live where they could all be together. Louise required some intensive hoof trimming and care when she first arrived due to her human being ill for such a long time and unable to care for her animals.
