He is named Puiu, around 15-20 years old. He was rescued/bought today. Someone saw him tied somewhere and wanted to rescue him because he was obviously thin and not well cared for. So after a discussion with his owner the horse was bought for 170 dollars.
Puiu seems to be a nice horse, he was used for pulling carts so he has a harness wound on his croup. Besides this his hooves don't look to great and he is infested with tics. But he will be ok soon with proper care and nutrition.
Here he is left to graze on some land. As you can see the grass doesn't seem to be very nutritional.
He is tied with a piece of chain around his neck and with some cable.
This is his ugly self

After the arrival at the shelter.
You can see how small he is, I'm 5'5'' so you can see he is very small. I think around 12 hh and he is a horse. I'm sure that he is not a pony because ponies are not very common around here.
Trying to make him look prettier.
