He’s a clever little Pony King…






So I went out to feed tonight… and there was no pony.

I knew that I had put him in with Gwen.  He was there the last time I checked.  But now, no pony.  I couldn’t believe my eyes.  How could he have escaped?  There were no opened gates.  He simply was not in the paddock where he was the last time I saw him.

As I ran to the paddock to make sure my eyes were not deceiving me, I noted that indeed, there was no pony where the pony should be.

And then I saw it.

Pony-sized escape route.  There he was, waaaaaaay out in the 5 acres.  He had escaped through the neighboring paddocks loose fence board.

Sneaky, crafty, clever Little Pony King.

I was feeding and noted that The Pony King was not where I had left him. He was not anywhere in the clearly visible paddock. My heart dropped.

As I ran into the paddock, I saw what I thought must have been his escape route.

Yup. There were pony mane hairs attached to the upper board. He had gone through here and out the neighboring paddock. (The gate to the 5 acres had been opened all day for Missy Miss and Mo to go out and graze.)

I fixed the board… as the pony continued to graze.

I came back out an hour later and he was back in the paddock.

I gave him his dinner and then asked him if he wanted to go into the other paddock, and he didn’t want to go. That was very curious to me because Dalton was in the other paddock. Me thinks he hasn’t discovered that I’ve closed off his new path! Or, maybe by the look on his face in this shot, he just noticed.

Looking for a Bucket Fund Horse… do you know a dire case? And and update on Keona!






Now that Facebook has squashed our ability to see or be seen, it has become more difficult to find Bucket Fund stories…  I wanted to support the horses who were hurt during the fireworks explosion in CA, but upon contacting the service caring for them, they said the horses have received enough donations to care for them.  Now I have no ideas for April’s Bucket Fund horse.

So… I am happy to hear any stories you may have of horses/foals/donkeys in dire need.  Just know that the issue has to be current and urgent, and that we don’t give funds to individuals, only vets, feed stores and registered equine rescues.

Thank you for helping here.  I need lots of ears and eyes out there to find these needy horses!

Feel free to comment or email me.

UPDATE ON KEONA

Our Bucket Fund horses from last month, Keona and Kiki, are doing well, considering.  They are gaining good weight and are feeling much better!

This morning, I received these two photos of Keona.  Poor girl.  She looks miserable!
