I responded to a craigslist ad for 2 lovely ponies that kids had outgrown. So, husband and I visit ponies and they were well ignored for some time. Their hooves were VERY long. But they were super cheap, I had 5 acres to stick them in, apparently children had ridden them and I felt a little sorry for them.
Both mares, both very nice ground manners. Not so much happy about being ridden - but they stuck around all summer and gave literally a couple of pony rides. I was learning that my kids weren't as horse crazy as I was. But at least I had fun :)
I'm not sure we have many other pictures of the ponies then these.
Welcome Honey and Patches - I think you can figure out who was who.
