My Pony and I

This is not a great photo of me, but it is showing me with my favorite pony, Miss Fancy Pants. She is a quarter pony and I love her so much! She rides wonderful and always does what you ask of her. She was my replacement after I decided to get rid of my older horse, Stormy.
Stormy was getting to be unpredictable and would like to try to pin you between her and the trailer or the rail when you were trying to cinch her up to ride. She was always good on the trail, but it was so hard to get her ready and getting dangerous with the way she was acting. We made the decision to give her a new home and purchased this pony. I was not sure of whether I wanted a pony as they have a tendency to be ornery, but she was a good choice for me.
Of course, Stormy was the replacement for Tyson. He was the love of my life (sorry dear husband) but he was failing in health and just was not able to recover from a stifle joint injury. He was such a sweet horse and so willing to learn and do, but he just was older and not capable of doing what he needed, plus he was suffering when you would try to get him to walk much.
Fancy has been a good fit in our family. I have other horses that I ride, but this is my favorite of those on the farm now.
