Yes, a pony... who is a little spit fire it seems. My instructor sold Romeo, so she needed a new pony to eventually incorporate into the lesson program. She originally went to look at a different pony, but after the twelve year old boy hopped on this pony (who is three years old) and just kicked her to walk and kicked her to "run"... and then the rein snapped and she just stood there, my instructor decided that this pony was 'the one'. To be able to tolerate that was impressive, so she brought the pony home in the coming week. Some people are not meant to own horses, but luckily, some horses are tolerant of it... the boy and his grandfather apparently tried selling her a lame horse after claiming "he isn't lame, this happens every year and he comes out of it eventually".
The first day at the barn, the pony jumped the pasture fence because prior to being let out, my instructor wanted to see her move in the arena and let her go over a jump or two. Apparently she cleared all the jumps easily, so she might just be the next Romeo, who was convinced he was an Olympic show jumper and one of the most forward thinking horses at the barn... despite being 12hh.
Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.
