Location: About 4 hours North of us.
The last "horse" that we bought is actually a pony, but he thinks he is much bigger than any other horse he comes across. =]
Java is a five year old, Hackney Pony. He is 13.2 hands tall. Java was green as grass when he came to us, and really knew nothing about being under saddle. He gets better every day, and I love working with him. Granted, he can be extremely frustrating sometimes, but he tries hard to please. He is having to learn how to be a "big" boy, and walk through water when asked (which was a terrible challenge when we got him!), listen to the rider, and not to his friends.
All in all I think Java was worth the money, and the driving time to get him. He has been a good addition to our herd.
I think I need to get some pictures of him undersaddle! I just seem to have bareback pictures... Also, these are probably the only two times I have ridden this pony without a helmet. He may be short, but he is still learning. =]
