20th April, 2010 Please look after this bear

This colt foal is due to go to the sales on May 6th at Beaulieu Road and I am hoping that I can divert him. His owner would like £125 for him to take into account the fact that he has spent the winter in a field with his mother and his granny and been fed and wormed rather than simply turned out on the Forest. He is very friendly, comes up to be caught and loves being fussed and cuddled. Due to a ghastly mistake by the owner with an over-tight headcollar, he has got a scab on top of his nose and under his chin at the moment but the one on top shouldn't scar and as he is grey it shouldn't matter in the long run. Despite this injury he was still easy to handle and my job today was to teach him to lead. I used the sleeves of my jumper around his neck to get him going and then used a 12' rope to ask him to move here and there. He is registered and passported. He is by Skywalker (by Obershade Skylark) out of Wellow Limpet (hence his name Wellow Mussels!!).
