Nigel heard that Silas was going to be shot, he was considered dangerous and had started biting and kicking. Silas was only 9 years old when he was rescued in 2016, Nigel contacted the owner and went to see him. Silas was very thin.
When Nigel got him to the yard he discovered that he had a wrongly positioned nail through his hoof, causing him pain. The biting wasn't aggression but him simply asking for help. As soon as the shoes came off his behaviour started to improve instantly.
He is an amazing little pony who basically does everything he is asked.
