Welsh / Morgan Mare 13.2 hands. Has a history of Bucking.
Giving away a pony is hard work. I didn't expect so many responses in the first 24 hours the ad came out. I didn't know there were so many people out there with the special talent of retraining bucking. This is serious "your coming off right NOW" bucking, and she can do it to.
In this economy with so many mostly nice, less likely to buck you off, free horses out there, I didn't expect such interest.
Thanks Pam for bringing to my attention that some folks could be just looking for some quick cash from the kill buyers.
A nice breeding farm down east almost took her as an addition to their Welsh line. That fell through quite coincidentally after I asked for references, after they said they were coming for her Sunday. Yes there is always a risk that a new pony won't fit in to a large herd, especially when she's an alpha. They forgot to think about that earlier in the conversation it seems. They did send the references, but I'm too busy checking references for interested parties--seemed silly.
Now I'm back to my list of names. Just got a list of references from a gal up northern Maine way. Come to think of it they are all up that way. Hay is cheaper up there and the grazing is more easy to come by summers. But she neglected to tell me her last name, and I neglected to ask for it, so I'm waiting for that bit of info before I start calling.
Bonnies owner can't afford to keep a horse she can't use. I can't either.
Can you do me a favor? Send out "find good home for Bonnie " vibes please.
