Tina is my amazing little Shetland pony. I got her for free to train, and she was skin and bones. Wild and malnourished, her owner assumed she was just going to rot in my backyard instead of hers.
Much to her surprise, Tina put on weight immediately and took to riding with little problems. She moved to my barn to be used in the lesson program and the kids loved her. She did a few shows and proved what an awesome jumper she is. Her old owner thought she still had some claim on her, but that, too, was a wrong assumption.
Today she lives on a farm with cattle horses and a herd of mini donkeys. The kids ride her sometimes, but she pretty much hangs with her herd, fat and happy. She seems happier than she’s ever been, and that’s all I could ever ask for her.
