Hi! Wow, all the way to Australia?
They are both registered welsh ponies. They do not have brands.
The owner, who is coming 16 this month has had these ponies for the last several years. She bought them when she was a LOT shorter, and her legs never stopped growing. Haha. She is an intermediate rider who started these ponies under the supervision of myself and the barn's trainer, Maree McAteer. She is from New Zealand- maybe you know her! :) She used to be a show jumper, but is now focusing on starting young horses and fixing others. She does natural horsemanship clinics, but teaches everything under the sun about horses.
Are you talking harness as in being driven? In that case, no.
I have no idea the shipping rate. I will ask Maree, she might know.
The owner would love for them to go together, but they are not attached to one another so that isnt one of her main priorities.
Rosie is a character. She really stands out. We call her Miss Piggie because she has that demeanor of "Look how perfect I am, don't you see it?" She was an orphan foal, I am not sure if you have had many experiences with those. She's quiet, but can have spunk when not worked with consistantly. She takes a quiet, soft rider, who isnt a beginner. She's easy to catch, and stand for the farrier. She's the kind of pony that if you show her the way, she'll learn to do anything. Her owner has been the main rider except the occasional rides from Maree. She lives out with 10 other mares and is a bit bossy, but not the alpha.
She's an easy keeper, and lives barefoot.
Buzz is also and extremely cute pony. Its a bummer she got so tall (5'8" and 115 lbs!) because she ended up with some fancy ponies.
Buzz has done some jumping, and has done many trail rides. I would say is is a level ahead of Rosie, only because she didnt have enough time to spend with them equally. He, too, takes a gentle, soft rider. He could carry a rider just getting past the beginning phases of riding because at his point in training he's a little more tolerant.
He lives out in a 20 acre feild with 30 or so more geldings and typically stays out of trouble. He's a friendly, playful guy who l o v e s attention. His owner can hop up on him bareback w/ a halter and ride him to the gate.
What would you be using them for? Do they sound like something you could work with? Looking forward to hearing from you!
