For a 3yr he's already well bulked! Glad my post have made a little shine in our heart, and hope you own boy brings as much joy as you expected after your loss :biggrin:

They are very chunky little ponies - but very athletic and light on their feet.

Your story was so wonderful to read!  When I was a little girl I was just like you, always dreaming about horses and ponies, desperate to be around them and to ride, and always asking my parents for a pony.  The pony never happened of course, in fact it's still a running joke with my mother.  She'll ask me what I want for my birthday or Christmas, and I'll still say a pony.  It's a running joke with my friends as well, whenever they say "guess what?" I always say "you won the lottery and you're buying me a pony?" Hah!  :P  Even as an adult I'm still dreaming of finally one day owning a horse and riding whenever I want.  But as my parents always explained to me as a child, buying the horse is the cheap part - keeping the horse is a whole lot more expensive!  They were right of course.  I keep looking at horses advertised for lease or sale and fantasise about buying, but I just don't have the money.  It might be different if I lived in a more rural area, but being in the inner suburbs of a major city means stables are few and far between and are double the price for lessons or agistment.  Horse ownership I fear shall always be out of my grasp  :( 

Reading your story actually gave me real joy.  You're living the dream!  You stuck it out through the rough patches and you bought your dream horse!  You learned together and became a team, and you both look wonderful.  She really does look like a different horse in the before and after pictures.  She looks healthier and happier!  She has lovely colouring, I can totally see why you fell in love with her.  The two of you have shared a special journey and you've both come so far in skill and confidence and trust.  I'm so happy for you, really.  I hope that one day I can make my horsey dreams come true like you have!  Please definitely keep sharing your stories here - I for one really enjoy reading about your experiences  :biggrin:

I didn't know the breed well, but I believe you :biggrin:
Those rustic breeds are always the "best"!

Your parents were so right. Also, it's very less expensive in the rural part.
When I bough the mare and still today, I wasn't rich. Keeping the horse really ask me a lot every month :blush:
I hope you will found a way to have your horse one day, but the best way to start for "less money" would be a lease. At least, you will not have ALL the owner expenses.  :hug:

Thanks you so much. We've got still a LOT to improve, but I'm not in a hurry, I want the things to be well done and I pick every lighted advices I can.
If one day you can jump into it, take in mind that's FAR FAR away in real than in the dreams, and it push your limits out. I cryied a lot and really goes though hard time. But it's worth the effort in the end!

Great story and photos!

Thanks!

What a wonderful story - you got to live every pony lovers dream, even the hard parts! You had be on the edge of my seat for a bit, I thought there was going to be a sad ending for a moment - I’m so glad you haven’t given up on her, she is lucky to have you as such a wonderful owner.

I love how you never gave up on her. Many would have, if they didn't get the "perfect horse".
