Well... kind of. I bought myself a new QH mare to show and am letting my youngest daughter ride and show her along with her Appy gelding. They took a first in English pleasure at their first show last weekend : )))
She calls her "her horse" all of the time, so I guess I bought one of my kids another "pony" for Christmas, LOL!

I don't have kids, but I'm going with a friend of mine and some other girls on Monday to find one for a client's beginner type student...sort of a girls' road trip. If you know of any 15 year-ish medium-larges that are great nanny ponies the area I'd love it if you let me know.
lol...i took the 2 large mini donks that were offered on the giveaway.......one spotted, one has those fantastic zebra stripes on her legs.....both are THE cutest things on wheels....do i need more??.........good lord, no...but my justification is that my animal loving grandson will ride them, and his little sister will ride in the near future...lol...
oh, and they are species-like buddies for MY riding donk, who is odd man out with the mule and horses...
NEVER got anything like animals as a kid, so am living out my own dreams now!
Bought my step-daughter a really fancy large. The kid is just learning and this guy is a SAINT! We went out for a Christmas trail ride and she jumped 2'6" for the first time...over a big log! I also bought myself a horse for Christmas...couldn't be left out! I got a coming 4yo Hungarian Warmblood that will hopefully be my A/O Hunter.
