My mum's friend (husband and wife) from work live on a farm. One day, their neighbours moved, leaving 2 ponies behind.
The white one is a mare, and must be severely head she. You can't pat her anywhere but her nose and you have to move very slowly. She will lick you, that's it.
Then they have one just a tad smaller. This one is a boy. No idea is her is a gelding or not. He is very friendly and cute, follows ya were ever ya go.
EXCEPT ONE PROBLEM!
This lady only feeds them grass, they don't do any work and are the grubbiest things I have seen! (don't have grooming brushes)
The thing is, the black one has a thick layer of hard, crusted dirt on his back. And on his bad (like the spine) there is fur that is so short that its all stubby. Is that bad?
More in next post.
