The Redwings Horse Sanctuary in Hapton was overjoyed last month following the healthy birth of what staff believe is the smallest foal they have ever had.
Tucker, who was named in memory of a sanctuary supporter’s husband who had passed away, was born on July 26 standing at a height of just 43 centimetres and a weight of only ten kilograms.
The miniature Shetland was nursed to full strength and will now take up permanent residence at the Ada Cole visitor centre in Harlow, which is open free of charge for public viewing.
Lynn Cutress, chief executive at Redwings, said: “Tucker is an absolute delight and it is lovely to see how this little chap has already captured the hearts of so many at the sanctuary.”
