I am looking for a small pony (no more than 12 hands) or a mini horse as a companion for my lonely mare. We would offer a loving, forever home on 5 private acres with 24/7 dirt turnout and grass rotation in summer.
I am looking for a free, free long-term lease or low adoption fee if possible. I just lost my older mare at the beginning of the summer to a long-term chronic illness that drained extra funds to purchase a new horse. Doesn't need to be broke to drive or ride. I only ask that the pony/mini be friendly and have good ground manners and no ridiculous high maintenance illness; just went through that and really don't want to get in that boat again so soon.
We have a 3 yr old daughter who would also smother it with love and attention with me.
