So, I’m currently borrowing one of my instructors small ponies as a companion for my horse. It seems the pony has decided I need to be her owner. My instructor and this pony have a mutual dislike and at her place she’s impossible to catch. She’s near the bottom of the herd and frequently escapes the pasture to go all over (and then is hard to catch). She’s not a good kid pony because she bucks. She has had a couple of foals but it seems like small ponies are an experiment that didn’t pan out so she’s not even being used as a broodmare.”
However, at my place she is top horse. She leaves her food to come hang out with me. She meets me at the gate, nickers every time she see me, and except for the first day, is ridiculously easy for me to catch. Yesterday when she escaped I didn’t even have to get a halter…just called her over and she followed back to the proper pasture.
I’d keep her, except I’m at a loss as to what I would do with a small pony……anyone have any ideas?
