But there was one problem. Svetozar is located almost 6000 miles away from Vladivostok =( It's about 10-12 days by trailer and 15000 $... As Peak is not just regular pony (he is tiny pony with a hard luck) I've decided to take risks and to ship him by plane. Words can not convey a surprise of the airline when I told them that I wanted to ship pony
Shipping pony by plane to Moscow and by trailer to Svetozar from Moscow cost 3000$. But I didn't have money for that either, so I asked about help of all horselovers of my region.

It says: "Help Mister Pony"


Luckly we still have kind people here (not so many as I would want) and it took only 3 months to raise money we needed.
And here we go!

Packing... Me...

... and his second mother

Svetozar, July 2012

Pasture por ponys (less grass to decrease a risk of laminitis and make ponys move more)

What a wonderful thing you've done for Mr. Pony. He will lead a wonderful life treated as a king because you reached out to him and pulled him out of misery.

The place which he is now as it absolutely stunning, and the joy in his eyes is reward in itself!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

This story is amazing, I really think you should be writing down all your experiences with these animals and share them with the world.
I don't mean to sound insensitive, I know next to nothing about Russia, but is it very hard to get education there?
I can only imagine the world of good you would do in your area if you could become a trained vet or farrier.
After all, "Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he can eat for the rest of his life."
Best of luck to you on any further adventures you may have with these animals, you are so very good to them and they are so lucky to have you!

This is a wonderful thread and you are a joy!! I am so happy for you, for your animals and particularly for your Mr. Pony, who is most fortunate to have found a friend in you, and for you to have found him.

You are giving him something he probably never had in his life, you can see it in his face now - the freedom the spirit feels when there is love and caring.

I wish for you and yours, only good things.

Your animals look so loved and happy.

-Cynthia
