Did you consider the cost of owning a pony when you got him?? Part of that cost is vet bills, farrier bills, feed, hay, fencing, buckets, tack, blankets, etc,etc. Your post made me cringe. The pony needs corrective treatment. You are looking for a low maintenance pony. This is not it. Maybe you could sell him ro trade him? But keep in mind, if you trade him, you still have to care for the new one. IMHO you are not ready for ownership as of yet.
