    Well when was the ad listed on equinenow? It could be old and now they are needing to find him a home ASAP which is why he is on CL? He's cute, and worth a look. I agree with the other poster though that there may be a reason he is "ONLY" a leadline pony - sore or lame? Not sane enough? Spooky?

    This. No harm in going to take a look.

    I guess what made me hesitate is that he comes from a farm that routinely "flips" ponies, which made me wonder why they didn't do it with this pony. He's on equinenow as "Blueberry")

    He IS super cute in that picture, but I still would not have had anything to ride. BUT, get this.....

    I have been praying that God would send us the perfect horse (for us) that the kids and I could all ride, and enjoy. I worked my pony Ember in the round pen yesterday, and she was totally sound, and was wonderful but my gut is telling me to let her grow up a bit more, and wait on her training (she's only 3)

    So, today during church I get a text from a friend, and trainer. "Do you want a large pony mare?" Ummm...wow. I tell her that yes, I was wanting something that the kids and I could ride, but I wasn't desperate for one. She then tells me how she was selling her daughter's pony, and that they had found her a horse today, and that if I could take her today, then she would give her to me, since otherwise she would have to build another stall.

    So, as the choir sang, I "bought" a pony.

    I thought that the pony would be coming here later today, but there she was in my pastor, when we got home from church. Wow!!

    She's only 5, and needs some work with her ground manners, but under saddle she was wonderful. She trots, but her canter is like a Walking horse canter - it is the smoothest thing I have ever felt.

    My son is just beside himself with joy. So, here she is:

    I have had a few sale ponies in the past, so my son kept asking over and over "So, she's ours forever?" Yup. She's here to stay.

    Here she is with a lesson kid: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...e=1&permPage=1

    AND she jumps: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...e=1&permPage=1

    Wonderful, how nice of that lady to place her pony where it will be some kid's best friend.
    Indeed it looks like a keeper, your son is right.

    I thought her "show name" I noticed on the bottom of one of her FB pics was perfect for how she found you. "Wish upon a star" was it? Would your kids like to pick her barn name? Sometimes they come up with the cutest most appropriate names.

    Again, congrats. She looks all settled in and happy with her new digs and people.

    I like her feet and legs better than the mysterious CL pony...

    She's very pretty and I also laughed out loud at the typo pastor for pasture!

    Divine, divine intervention.

    What a great story and cute pony!

    As for names, I finally got my first horse when I was 23. He was much nicer than I had thought I'd be able to get with my very limited budget. I showed him as "Unexpected Answer" and his barn name was "Lazar" (Hebrew for "God will help").

    Maybe "Answered Pray" and Sunday?

    I like her show name too - I was thinking about names having to do with Star, or names meaning "gift from God".

    I'd call her Stella (it means star).

    I think Jane means "gift from God."
