Welsh x Shetland yearlings Northwestern North Carolina
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...ize=960%2C720I acquired two ponies last month when they were left by a renter/boarder at a friend's farm. They are a filly and colt out of Shetland mares by the same Welsh stallion. They are barely halterbroke, but are not hard to handle, just inexperienced with everything! I do not have the time to train them.
They have their whole lives ahead of them, and I want them to get a good start with quality training. Too many horses in this area are cowboyed until they are ruined. Help get these guys to a place where they will be appreciated!
The colt is super friendly/curious as a pony should be. The filly is a bit suspicious, but has movement like a tiny TB! Floaty and jumps for fun! He is 10h.h., she is maaaybe 12.
Photos are from today- first day without snow in two months.

Update on ponies- I found a home for the colt. Yay! The filly has since been able to get near me for treats and scratches. She has a great personality, smart and spunky. Now that she is out with the herd, she is really showing off her moves! She FLOATS and prefers to jump rather than go around any obstacle.
I still haven't gotten any good pix or video, can't get a break in the weather.
