View Full Version : Off to see a loan pony!

15th September 2009, 12:15 PM
Hi folks, I'm off to see a loan pony for Alana for the winter. He's at a local riding school and he's a fell pony. Actually there is a possibility of 3 ponies.

He sounds really kind and gentle, although the lady said he's struggling a little in a herd environment and would benefit from some one to one attention. Well......... we can provide plenty of that! :D

Alana doesn't know yet, I'll surprise her tonight. We're gonna go and see him (and the others) tomorrow night. If only my mam and dad had of done this for me when I was young! I'll be telling Alana how lucky she is!!! :cheekywink:

Oooooh - great choice of pony!! And she was just telling me she wanted a fell pony the other day!!!!
Hope the visit goes well xx

Lucky Alana! hope it works out for you!
However, I question the pony not liking a herd environment! (that's not natural!) I think you will have to get another, Angela, as a companion!

Well we've been to see all three prospective loan ponies and we've found the perfect one.

She's called Gem and she arrives the first week of November. :D She's 13.2hh, 9yrs old, black and looks to me like a fell x. Her passport says irish cob. Alana managed her really well and she was so sweet.

The other two either weren't suitable or weren't available. Don't know how Alana will contain her excitment till then! :cheekywink:

Brilliant!! The time will drag for poor Alana now, bless her.

I'm sure the time will be endless for her, but good things come to those who wait!!

We only have her from Nov - April next year, so I dare say there might be a few tears too!!!

Aw I bet she's so pleased!!!! She'll be driving you insane till November :lol: So glad you found one!

17th September 2009, 08:48 PM
so glad you got something sorted. Will she be able to go and ride the pony before she comes to you
