Project pony / field companion / brood mare
This little pony was bought by my daughters for a project in the summer holidays, she had previously been used as a broodmare.
When she arrived she was a nervous wary little pony and it took patience and time to win her over and gain her affection.
She now lets us groom her, cuddle her, feed her from our hands, she wears a head collar in the field although she can be caught with food.
The girls have spent hours winning her round, she can lead no problem, they can lean over her the next step would be to introduce tack and start long reining etc… but the dark nights have stopped any further education and we don’t want her to go backwards.
Currently she is living in a mixed herd, is not bossy, if anything she can be bullied.
This little mare could happily be used as a field companion, (never had laminitis) a project for someone with facilities which we didn’t have here, or a brood mare as she has previously had one foal so we were told.
