FNQ Foster Farms Inc.
Home of New Beginnings
Miss Lily has been fortunate to find herself a new home where she is spoiled and pampered. She has undergone quite the transformation. Every six weeks she gets her pedicure and she's also had her smile seen to. She has been a farm hand and has done two cattle musters, and loves her trail rides and grooming.
Hilda has found her soulmate, who she follows everywhere. She has proven to be good with kids and has won the affections of Amber the dog. We're proud to have supported this union and assisted Hilda's new family to make it work. Hilda was acting out and not behaving like herself, so her human got in touch with us. Together, we got to the bottom of it and discovered a certain type of feed was the culprit and since coming off it, Hilda is back to her normal sweet self.
Rebel was adopted out as a companion horse to Sharon and family. We helped guide the decision as to who would be a good fit for not only the humans, but for their horse Mo. Rebel is pretty chuffed with her new home and new friends.
Kimba was adopted by Belinda and family and is loved to bits by the granddaughters, who he is very calm with. He has settled into his new cage and is feasting on fruit, grasses, special guinea pig mix and the newspaper lining the house part of his cage. He sleeps in his own cage in the chook house which is snake and vermin proof. He gets lots of cuddles during the day and is learning not to race off when he gets out of the cage. There are plans to get him a little male friend at some stage.
Snickers is a 12 year old, 12hh Australian Riding Pony. Previously a cart horse, Snickers was put under saddle when he arrived at FFF.
He loves his small humans and is safe on the ground but not as confident ridden. Snickers needs hours put into him to bring out the his best and we're pleased to announce he has made his perfect match, a lovely lady who had adopted him to do exactly that.
Snickers' $1500 adoption fee will allow us to extend a helping hand to others in need. While we're sad to see him go, we're excited to see what the future holds for him in his new home.
Tommy and Scooby
Tommy and Scooby were fortunate to find a home together.
"A huge thank you to Sue and the guys at FNQ Foster Farms. What an amazing job you are doing. I am totally blown away with the extra work you have put into these ponies, and the support you have given us, my kids are just so in love with these two."
Ava is a very lucky little girl who has gone off to live a life of luxury at Longhorn Lodges with her new beau Honky-Tonk.
"Little Dolly is proving to be the perfect companion for Honky-Tonk. Honky can be a bit of a bully, which is why he's no longer in the paddock with the sheep! So when selecting a friend for him, we opted for a sweet little girl who would stay out of his way and understand that Honky was the boss. How wrong we were!!
Dolly has certainly proven herself to be the boss of Honky-Tonk, and it's hilarious watching him bolt across the paddock when she squeals at him! We were warned by Sue from Foster Farms that Dolly is excellent at squealing and putting on a show to get her mates into trouble... yep, Sue hit the nail on the head!
If Honky so much as LOOKS at Dolly the wrong way, she's squealing her little heart out in the hopes that the humans will chastise Honky-Tonk.
And for those of you feeling sorry for Honky right now.... a taste of his own medicine is just what the doctor ordered!"
Dallas and Jacko
"The boys have settled in so well — they dont like to be without each other and are seriously best friends. They even ate from the same bucket until separated.
They run around the paddocks and have seven acres to themselves. They come running when called!
We rode them recently just in the top paddock to get to know them, they tested us, but we got tougher and then they were good.
Amitty and Dallas are like two peas in a pod, they snuggle, kiss and she brushes him and he goes to sleep."
"Joe Joe on the go go!
Joe Joe has landed on his feet in his new home where he is best buddies with an older horse. He gets to go on trail rides at liberty and is going to be shown in the minis show circuit.
