This cool Shetland Pony X named ‘Tonto’ was seized from his former owners by an SPCA Inspector, 
due to halter rope wounds to his face and neck. He was accompanied by a few other ponies from the same property, 
all of which have since been rehomed. 

Tonto has been well trained, however due to the nature of owning small ponies, 
will need an experienced small pony owner, who knows all the ins and outs of owning these animals. 

His wounds are all now fully healed, he has had dental work done, as well as a tooth removed. 
He'll need dental check every 3 months, as well as feet trimming every 4-6 weeks.

Tonto will be a big commitment, but he will also be a lot of fun to have around. 
He has a little cheekiness to his nature, and most people are surprised to hear how old he is (between 15-20 years), 
as he has a lot of bounce to his step! 

Tonto does like the company of other ponies, so that would be ideal although not a necessity. 

If you can help find him a home, please call Fiona at SPCA Auckland on 09 2562524.
