We are working with him to see if he is broke to drive a cart. Don't delay. Come and meet this cutie!

We were asked if we'd consider taking in a pony who really needed a helping hand. We said yes and then there was Robin! Robin is a handsome paint pony who came to us at 16 months of age. He was consigned to auction by his owners and in the auction paperwork, under name, all that was listed was the auction number. Robin arrived very timid and nervous. He wasn't sure who he could trust so he decided to trust no one. We have carefully worked with him and he is coming out of his shell. He loves to play and he and Marco make quite the twosome. Robin will be a wonderful project pony. He is available for adoption but won't be ready to take a saddle for at least a year. Come meet Robin, be prepared to have him steal your heart.

A dark blue roan who is not quite two, he came from a Texas auction, where he had been abandoned. Despite that rough start, he is a teddy bear of a boy, who loves belly rubs. While his conformation may not be classically beautiful, he has a gentle, loving spirit that would do well in a therapy situation. Available for adoption in the future.
