I've seen this pony... was he dropped off in your yard? Also that black sock is amazing, so cute!

Maybe it was a different pony...Not sure. But he's really cute. Never seen black socks before

I'm guessing seeing as your location is Florida it's unlikely! I'm based in the UK

If you had he would be a very well travelled cob though!

No, not in person lol I saw a pony that looked like that maybe in Ireland? That someone dropped off in someone else's yard. Not sure if I'm remembering the story right.

I don't know all of his history as most of it is unknown, only that he was part of a prosecution case here in England, which is how he came to us.

It's possible he came from Ireland, but not hugely likely, as we are almost as over run with cobs of the black and white traveller variety as they are, so there is little value in shipping them over, and he is still quite young, and entire.

I know which one you're talking about! He was on Reddit. I think he's a LOT younger than this one, though - plus I think that one is red and white.

He's cute!

As Drafty posted it can come about as a mutation, with this guy it's not a mutation, or even a real sock just the way the pinto pattern works on his leg, the "warring" genes that are so neat to see sometimes. His leg is black but the pinto makes it want to be white like the other 3...but the other pinto gene makes it want to stay black. Very cool marking. Thanks for sharing!
