    Very Flashy Fellow! Good luck with him.

    Looks way too nice to have been deserted in a field.

    Hope he works out well.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Stunning boy! Do you plan on keeping him or training to sell?

    He has a lot of little issues, so I want to clear that up, see if he is broke and then go from there.

    I show hunters and if he can jump and is quiet, he would be an adorable children's pony hunter.

    We will see! He sure moves good!

    Update!

    We did find a little more about the pony. He was bought in an auction for 200 in Feb. 2011 after that we know nothing.

    So we put a bridle and saddle on him today and he is broke!

    Not very broke, but went around in the round pen with me just fine!

    Excited for this little guy!

    Let's hope he jumps!

    holy cute pony batman!! nice little find, keep us updated! Love his markings.

    Our house came with a mini-horse house warming gift from the previous owners. He was a stallion (7 years old). We gelded him but he is still very mouthy, we have to be REALLY careful when kids are around because he does bite. It's been a year since he was gelded.

    You would never think he was a stallion. He is very behaved.

    He does love my mare, he got a little upset she went out of eyesight today to graze.

    I need to figure out a good pad for him because my saddle was a little wobbly. He doesn't really have any wither definition and he is so flabby!

    Maybe a half pad would be best.

    He is going to make a kid really happy in a few months!

    I dreamed about a pony like this when I was a kid!

    Now I just have to talk my neighbor into letting me pull/trim his mane to be a hunter pony.

    He likes it long, it drives me crazy!

    Oh my god that is literally my childhood dream pony, how weird is that. I mean, he is the most hideously ugly pony I have EVER seen, and you should hide him under my christmas tree so you needn't have the embarrassment of being associated with him

    Not related, but I saw that you are in Gilbert. I board my mare in Gilbert as well.

    Very cute guy!

    That is a picture with his English gear on!

    Today is the 3rd day I have ridden him. He is starting to learn what leg means, but he does have a little stubborn streak. I am now carrying a dressage whip to help him understand forward.

    He is very sweet and willing so we are taking it very slow. He also doesn't like his back feet picked up, so we are working on that too.

    He loves all the attention and I think he will make a great kids pony in a few months!

    Yes, I am in Gilbert! Bought a horse property a couple years ago. I have my old retired gelding who is 23 (he doubles as a weanlings baby sitter), a broodmare who is pregnant and her 2 sons. Luckily I only built 6 stalls so I can't have any more horses! (at east not until I sell on)

    I love helping animals and I feel so bad when I see nice ones like this fall through the cracks. I am glad we found him!

    He looks awful in that tack. You'd better let me have him so you won't be embarrassed

    Yeah, he is pretty unattractive. I live up in northern Vermont where he wouldn't be teased about his looks. Let me know when he's arriving.
