Traditional Gypsy Cobs
All the horses that we use at our centre are traditional gypsy cobs. This is an amazingly flexible breed with a range of talents but in recent years this breed has sadly been over bred; due to this they are now the main breed, looking for homes, at all the UK welfare agencies.
KNLC aims to give a valuable role to cobs; a job for life. They are kind, sensible, understanding horses with a gentle disposition, ideal for our equine facilitated learning programmes.
You can read more about our work with cobs and the current issues surrounding the breed at www.cobcare.co.uk
Life has improved for Jim; he has found new friends and a new girlfriend, he is always kind and polite, shares his food and absolutely loves being groomed
Colin the Cob
KNLC is fostering Colin from Cob Care as part of his rehabilitation. Colin arrived at Cob Care very thin, sick and extremely shy of people. He is being nurtured back to good health and through his rehabilitation at KNLC is learning to socialise with other equines and people; sharing his story with visitors to KNLC. Once Colin is fully recovered, he will return to Cob Care; their aim will be to find him a loving, forever home.
So that Lily was happier and more comfortable, she moved back to England with her foster mum. There she met more of her family members including her Grandma which made her really happy. She now lives in the same field as her Grandma
Mr Samuel Whiskers
Samuel moved to KNLC and was instantly loved by a little girl called Jessica, she brushed him and loved riding him. Samuel got his own little cart , so went out on drives which he loved. He then went to a very big show and won! He is now very loved and everyone cuddles and brushes him. He loves his new life
And here are some of our other animals. So many and some with amazing stories to tell. They look forward to meeting you.
