Due to change in family situation, I DESPARATELY need to rehome several young ponies, mostly POA/haflinger/QH crosses.
Weanling colt, dark sorrel with blaze and snowflake pattern over hips. He's around 7 mo old. He hasn't been handled much but I will be rectifying that in the near future.
Weanling filly, very light sorrel, almost palomino with stripe. Mom is a Welsh x haflinger cross, Dad is a QH. Very stocky and cute. Again, hasn't been handled much but I will be working on that.
Bullseye is a yearling gelding. He's a red roan with a stripe. I haven't done a lot with him but he is very friendly and loves scritches and cookies. He has a small growth in the corner of his right eye but the vet says it doesn't impair his vision and should not get any bigger. I think he will mature out large enough for a small adult to ride. He is current on shots.
Baby is a 2 year old filly. She is a medium sorrel with some roaning and a blaze and socks. Very chunky and cute. She is halter broke and is very gentle and friendly, an "in your pocket" pony. She is a Welch/haflinger cross. She is on the small side, I'm guessing 10-11hh but very stocky. She just looks like an English type pony to me.
Beauty is the mother to the previous two. She is 4 years old, a light sorrel with a blaze but is greying out. She is a Welch/haflinger cross. Very stocky and fat. Hasn't been handled a great deal but is gentle and friendly. She is a dominant mare in the herd.
Holy cow, the four year old is the dam of the two year old? I am not a math major by any stretch but that sounds an awful lot like breeding a yearling to me. Good luck finding them new homes. Glad to see you gelded the one.
They are all in Texarkana. I will try to get some photos but it will probably be later this week. My daughter is the photographer in the family and she has dance Mon and Tues and goes to church on Thurs.
Yes, Laurie, Beauty got bred too early. I had a cryptorchid colt that my regular vet didn't want to geld so I had to find a vet that would do it, plus it cost around $650 to have it done so I had to save up. Said colt was an escape artist. I had him in a pipe corral, 8' fence and he found out how to flip the latch. Why is it when you want a foal, it takes forever and a herd of vets to get the mare bred but when you don't want one, the colt can get out for an hour and everything is bred.
Everybody is gelded now except for the weanling colt and a mini yearling. I will probably do them later in the year.
Same reason the good horses always get hurt but the bad ones could live in a field of landmines for decades! I have found it the people on this forum to be very generous in stepping up to the plate to give a horse a home but they won't even look twice if there are no pictures. Not sure why.
