Possible reluctant rehoming - 9 Horsfields
Hi guys, I want to start by saying how much I love tortoises. I've always had tortoises since I was a small child and think they are the best animals around so please know how much I hate that I'm even writing this.

I am considering rehoming my group of 9 Horsfields. They are all healthy and have a great life. They live outdoors in SW Cornwall from May to October and have enough space to live as wild animals. I've always been very proud of how well I keep them, but a time is coming where I think I may not be able to look after them so well and give them the outdoor space they need.

With this in mind I am considering rehoming them.

They are between four and 10 years old, and a mixture of males and females.

I'm just putting this out to the best tortoise community I know of to see if anyone has any suggestions or interest in rehoming one, some or all of them.

I will use that to make a decision on what to do.

Thanks for reading.

Sam I am so sorry to hear that. It must be a difficult time which one day we will no doubt all reach. I am sure I remember seeing some posts of your set up, of course being a Horsfield lover I took special notice and thought wow ! I do hope it works out for you. cb x

Samm that's really sad to hear. Is there no way you could keep them ? They have such a wonderful home with you, it sounds amazing , I doubt anyone could replace what they have now. Think long and hard before you make a decision, don't regret having re homed them. Good luck.
