that poor pony =( it definitely looks like (untreated) cushings. I hope they drop the price and maybe someone will come and take care of her. She was probably an excellent babysitter before she went lame

I'm considering emailing them, maybe they don't know about cushings. Maybe they'd be willing to give her to a rescue that can help her.

That's also probably why she's lame...she's no doubt foundered frequently.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Trojan/Riddles,
I, too, agree a rescue would be a wonderful forever home/retirement option for this poor little girl...definitely email them if you can (?) A friend did that with a dog ad he saw recently and literally saved this poor, older Boxer mix from a very bad outcome (long story)...it really can help to do such! :0)

Just found this one, these kill me sometimes. That much for an unsound horse, but that can ride trails? Hmmm.

The movie was based on a novel by Joyce Barkhouse. The movie inspired a television series (1999). The television series was set in Glace Bay, on Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.

Chico was likely a Sable Island Pony.
Ahahaha yeah :) that's where I live! LOLOL

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I think we need a name for people like this. "Black Stallion Syndrome." Yes, that's. It.

What I don't get about this situation (& we see it sooo often, yes!) is that any horse owning/knowing adult KNOWS a 4 year old stud is, in 99.9% of cases, wrong for ANY young or non- advanced rider...thus, this smacks of a possibly spoiled, but at the very LEAST, far TOO MUCH holding CONTROLLING interest in the family unit/not in the role which any teen "should be", IMO--"convincing" her parents that this "puuurty poneh" is going to be just PERFECT for her! When did these things get left to the KID??

Do these parents complete NO RESEARCH prior to purchasing a 1200lb "pet" for their HOPEFULLY beloved daughter? When my kid, who is fifteen, wants to play a new sport/make ANY pricey purchase, his job is to compile pros and cons on whatever it is, "sell" me and his dad on why he thinks item/activity in question will benefit him....and do so long term, not for 3 minutes until he gets bored (so commonly the way kids can be these days) but months to years down the road!

Then DH & I do our OWN RESEARCH if we are not well educated on the subject/sport/item he wants. While we do this, he WAITS. AND he works to start paying for said item. And after working hard, waiting a month or more, and IF STILL showing interest, then as long as it "works" for the family, we know he us "serious" enough to start looking to buy/join/etc...said item/sport/other.

Do the parents in these scenarios allow their kids to "take the reins"?? I wish I knew. Apparently, TRUE parenting is no longer "en vogue"! Pretty sad, for about a thousand reasons, but from the HORSE perspective, now this 4yo stud is moving homes again. At least in this case, these folks seem to "get" that it isn't HIS FAULT they picked a terrible match for their kid; certainly not all horses are that lucky. That's when it gets REALLY SAD....(sorry for the novel, guys).
