This is a pony I am fostering for a rescue group. He is one of many that were seized from a neglect situation. Anyone need a sweet, quiet, quick learning POA?
Like a hole in the head I need another horse...but thanks for asking:)
Billy sayss Awwwwwwwwwwwwww If it was up to him the pony would have a home... LOL
If I had a place for it......in a heartbeat. But no place to put it darn it! He's a beauty!!
He'd be no substitute for Chief but he's going to be a good kid's pony.
Well he now leads, ties, longes under saddle responding promptly to voice commands, ground drives and loads in a stock trailer or a two-horse with a ramp. Still no takers?
wish I could, but I'm already boarding one and can't afford to board 2. I hope you find a home for him.
Actually there is already a girl interested in him. The rescue just has to approve her and her stable. - Here's hoping...
Me too. They have about 50 more of them to place, so I'll be fostering a couple more when this one is adopted. If they are all as nice as this one it may be possible to find most of them homes fairly easily.
Yes, the rescue is going to send me two more when this one goes. I hope our luck holds.
Thank heavens for rescue & the people like you who help them out.

My "Little Man" just left with his new adoptive owner - hopped right up onto the trailer. What a good boy. Two more are on their way. I hope they are as sweet as he is.
I'm glad that he had the confidence to do so. 2 together keep themselves amused?
The rescue just forwarded an email to me from the pony's adopter and she is very happy with him. Happy ending!
SWEET....................I am riding tomorrow and will post a thread and pictures.
very cute and good luck. I know they have a good foster home with you.
Good luck to you & the ponies. Perhaps the bold one can teach that humans can be all right.
Yes the timid one watches me work with his friend and follows along but is afraid to be touched - at least at first. He fell out of his halter so it will take a while before I can get another on him - probably an afternoon's work.
The previous foster is now being ridden and jumped by a ten year old boy!
Good looking ponies!! Sounds like they will become great mounts under your care.
Both of these POAs too. They are in good shape. Have fun with them.
They probably are POAs but the ponies were breeding randomly for years and have no papers. The roan has enough color to get a "hardship registration" - probably.
I had a POA once. Proud cut gelding full of spit and vinegar but I could ride the rough string then so it was fun.
The ponies are progressing - slowly. They have gone from untouchable to longing fairly reliably under tack and allowing me to lie carefully over their backs. I had sort of planned to actually sit on one or both of them today - until the front arrived with strong north winds and dropped the temperature 20 degrees. Seemed like a poor choice of a day to get on.
yes, we would not have wanted you to get blown off :). Good that they are learning to trust.
Sounds like great progress to me. Even if the speed is slow, the fact that you can do that with them now is great!!
