Possible new barn mascot?
 
My trainers father had a B class mini up until April of this year. The poor thing cast himself and rotated his stifle struggling to get up while we were all helping him. He lasted another 5 months before the vet said no surgery would help and was put to sleep. His name was Soda Pop. He was a stout little rock start thing with a lot of spunk, a little shy at times but adorable. In his good days I guess he did a lot of showing in hand but he was gifted to her dad a few years ago when the previous owner passed away? I think that's how it happened? Anyway he's greatly missed.

Yesterday we were talking about him and I'm sitting in one of the chairs going through dreamhorse on my phone and found a bunch for under 1000 dollars. I jokingly said...if we all pitch in we could buy another and make him a mascot? Everyone agreed! So it's still up in the air and it all depends on the final decision. Trainer is excited and wants a show mini. Her dad would love another little guy to follow him around. So here's a couple I wanted to share that I thought were adorable.

They're all absolutely adorable! The first and last are lovely, but I think I'm partial to that second one. His 'pony afro' is awesome! haha. I'd be curiouse to see what color he'd turn out to be.

Our barn, also- has a mascot. His name is Little Feather and he is a dwarf (21 inches tall). The perfect mascot of you ask me, for a therepeudic facility! He's king of the barn, and has no problem bossing around our 17.3hh thoroughbred! haha

I'm still wiping drool off my chin over the first one, Stetson's Best Little Rock Star. Hubba hubba! But Sky (the second one) is absolutely freakin' adorable too!

I love them all! How will you ever choose?

I just noticed the very last one already sold! Sad face!
In the end it's up to my trainer and who's willing to pitch in. Has to be show quality of course and she's given us a budget to stay under 1000. I love the little fluff ball, color is interesting and I wanna see what the end coloring is! I don't know! Right now she's trying to sell her eventer and she said after he's sold we'll start really looking since she'll know what her personal pitch in amount will be.
