Okay, some bad news.

Couple of month ago our Pony unexpectedly started to loose his weight =(
So we have changed his feeding a bit. Now he eats hay, wheat bran 150 gr per day (150 gr = 0,3 pound), vegetables 1-1,5 pounds per day, probiotics and intestines supplement. Getting better each day. But I needed to know what's wrong with him, so I've sent his blood to blood test to Moscow (5000 miles away from us). And his blood test is bad =(( so we're waiting recommendations from vet to make things better.

Last month we took Pony to dogs clinic (vets were shocked) and took x-rays of his legs. Actually there are first x-rays of equine legs in our city (and state I think=))) ).
(I made the same before with my horse but in human's hospital - it's a long and very funny story))))))
Here his x-rays with photos. X-rays are not perfect, projections somewhere are awful, but it's the best we could do for our first time. I hope next time will be better.

Mr. Pony

Bad news always come together with good news to optimist people

We finished personal mini paddock for our mini pony =))
Now he can be outside for all day long (It's a huge problem in our city to find a place where horse could walk all day long )
He definitely feels happy about that ^^
Of course there is a lot of work in his mini paddock, but it's better then nothing.

He still doesn't feel disable or sick. He's insolent, smart and very agile little monster

We invited our local TV channel to show him to people. I wanted to show that he is very sick, he was ridden kids, he walk hard, and very miserable poor thing in general. And... I couldn't catch him for a long time And when I finally caught him, he couldn't stay still and tried to play with me I guess reporters haven't believed in his disability

Unfortunately, report is in russian and for now I have only poor quality version but there is a Mr. Pony, so you can have a look if you want.

P.S.: About black stallion in this vid I will tell you later, when I get videos and photos I need. It's a very sad story.

Wow, just WOW! It is absolutely amazing what you have done with and for this pony. He is one very lucky pony to have met you. Congratulations on what you have achieved. You will always remember Mr. Pony -- when you are a little old lady you can tell your great-grandchildren about him!

I have results, but I don't know what they mean and vet haven't send me a letter yet.
complete blood count (google translate said)) )

biochemical blood

If here somebody know anything about bloodwork, I can try to translate left column.
2 column - units
3 column - pony's result
4 column - average value for the species

Yeah, sorry, the Russian is just totally throwing me!
So you don't happen to know the one or two specific things that are wrong? (I guess that's why you are waiting for the interpretation from Moscow and your vet, huh?)

Good luck with it; hope it's an easy fix.

Today is the first time I've seen this post. And I just wanted to tell you what an amazing person that you are for saving Mr. Pony. You have done such a wonderful job with him. After seeing the first pictures of him, I was so heartbroken. Then I saw the new pictures of him and my jaw fell to the floor. I can't believe the change! You are truly, truly a remarkable person and the heart you have must be huge. To take a chance on that little guy and wanting to help him for purely unselfish reasons is just beyond anything that I've ever seen.

Way to go. I hope Mr Pony recovers from whatever illness he may have. If for some reason he doesn't, please pat yourself on the back for making the last of his days filled with love, fun, food, and the knowledge that not all people are bad.

You are an angel.

"The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with
him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too."
