Need opinions.. 9yo Welsh B pony

I've been offered a trade for my Levi, and the trade is a little Welsh B pony. I'm looking for a pony for my children.

Anyway - this guy is 9yo.

Since I'm selling my gelding for $600, and if trading for this guy - would make him about $600 too.

What do you think?

He's adorable!
He does have a big tummy on him tho. And he looks very calm! Make sure you try him out before you trade ;)

My boyfriend spanks me while I call him mommy (goosed by lilkitty90)

he looks pretty good. Soemthing about how is neck ties into his shoulder looks a little wonky in the second picture but of course it could be the angle. But he's a kids horse and I think he is gorgeous!!!. Is he gentle enough for a kids horse? How old are the kids? And what kind of riding will they be doing?

Also why are you getting rid of Levi? Because I LOVE him! He is absolutly gorgeous!! I'd take him in a heart beat! Especially at 600$'s unless of course he has some kind of attitude problem

I absolutely LOVE section B Welsh's. IMO there would be no better pony you could get for your kids, as long as he's good (which the majority of them are).

Typically section B's are of sound mind, very kid friendly

Hubby says I have too many horses. Pff. Whatever. So that's why I'm selling Levi. I'm being totally picky about who he goes to because he's a total character. Steals french fries of all the awful crimes he commits!! He's actually a police horse reject - only reason they didn't keep him is he's too short (16.1hh) because of all the horses I've ever met, he's basically bombproof. Nothing phases him.

My 4 year old can pick out his feet. My 8 year old can ride him without a guide.

But I'm on the search for an eventing partner and since I may have found him, and since I also have a Cleveland Bay foal coming in June this year, and since we have Cowboy... hubby is trying to get me to thin the herd a bit. Levi needs a job and he's not getting one with me.

In response to my kids - they'll be riding English. I don't know how to ride Western. But this little guy jumps too which they sent me a video of.

Oh and I'm going to be holding mini-clinics for parents and kids that "absolutely have to positively have a pony" but don't know what it entails. Basically they will learn about what it really takes to take care of a pony, including vet care, farrier care, feeding, maintaining, grooming and poop scooping.

So I'm looking for candidates for that too. I have one Arab/Welsh mare that I'm picking up Sunday for that too.

man now I wish I lived near you lol we need a better kids horse for the 11 and 9 year old. They are very confident with horses but they need one to gain even more confidence with. But if a Welsh B is what you need and he is exactly what you are looking for. Then why not trade? You'll both be getting a HECK of a deal!!!

Around me, a nice pony like the one you are looking at is worth it's weight in gold so $600 is a good price.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Yeh I think I'd be a fool to let him get away. I'm interested to see what he looks like without the huge belly haha.

He does look a little on the heavy side 8)!
