Scottish SPCA seek home for overlooked pony Tango

The Scottish SPCA is seeking a home for Tango, a pony who has been overlooked for the past 77 days.


We are caring for Tango, who has quite specific needs, at our Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Aberdeenshire.

Graeme Innes, manager of the centre said, “Tango is a five year old Shetland Welsh cross mare.

“She is a lovely pony who has come on leaps and bounds in our care.  Her confidence has grown and she is very eager to learn.

“We think potential owners have failed to notice Tango as she is quite a small pony at only 10.2 hands high so won’t be suitable for everyone to ride.

“She suffers from sweet itch, a manageable condition that doesn’t cause her too many issues.  A new owner will need to have knowledge of the condition and be willing to manage it through the warmer months.

“This girl loves a fuss and is very sociable, so a home where she can get lots of attention and be with other equines would be perfect for Tango.

“Ideally, Tango will go to a home where she could potentially go on to become a ridden pony.

“We would love to see her start the next chapter of her life in a new home where she can blossom and fulfil her potential.

“We are certain that an experienced owner who is willing to put the work in with this mare will reap the rewards.”

Anyone who can offer Tango a home should our centre in Aberdeenshire on 03000 999 999.
