Hey, I since Mooney died I can't afford to house or buy a full size horse right now, but yesterday I went to look at a pony, not sure what kind I think welsh. He is only 10.2hh tall, loves to trot and has a ton of knee action going on. But he has been seriously neglected for the past year (not by the people selling him, they saved him from the meat man, they've only had him three weeks but he doesn't fit with their herds). His feet are slowly recovering from being elf shoes and they said he had been eating dirt at the time they got him. He is a little over weight and may have foundered in the past, but he is at least 10 years old judging by the groove on his teeth (which need to be floated badly). Do you think he could come back and become a cart pony? Possibly a riding pony (for my little sis)? He is sweet as can be needs a few manners but a little ground work can go far. I think he may have been in harness before, and even with the longer hooves he floats over the ground, with a huge trot for his size. Thanks all opinions are great! And thanks for reading all of that.
