We have decided that Chocolate needs to go to a new home. We've had for a few years (only owned for for ~1 but she has been here for nearly 3 years) and she is a sweetheart. She is great with kids and loves people.
We would prefer to just give her to the right people who will take good care of her.
You could maybe let her out on free long term loan to someone local, maybe a family, or to a riding school, speaking as an instructor you can never have to many small ponies, at least you know she'll be pampered by all the kids and you could go and visit her if you want
Ofcourse, being a mini- riding isn't the ideal job for her. I'd try to find her a home as companion first, or even a therapy pony or for driving / in hand trail or jump classes. She obviously enjoys adventure! XD

I see your point, but I had 3 minis&1shetland in my riding school and they were great, they only got used for the tots having a we walk around the paddock or for showing the kids how to groom and tack up.. ideal because of their size
