Quarter Horse Pony
Miso is a child friendly sweetheart in the arena. She rates down to her rider's skill level and is easily controlled in just a halter and a lead rope. With a more advanced rider, she is more than happy to give a little get up and go!
Miso is a friendly size for kids to learn on. She stands like a professional for the vet and farrier, and jumps right on a trailer. She would be suitable for a family with children.
Miso has shown mild symptoms of heaves... particularly when working hard or when the leaves are falling. Because of this, we want to place her in a home that will keep this in mind and monitor her as the seasons change. She should not eat out of a round bale, and should be kept outside as much as possible. While the vet describes her issue as mild, it is best to stay on top of it while heavey horses are younger so they can be healthier even longer as they age. At this time, Miso is not on any medications unless she has a flare up (she has only had one flare up in the whole time we have had her). She would benefit from a supplement like Heave-Ho or Lung EQ.
The ideal home would for Miso would be a place where she could give kids rides often, but not so hours on end. She really enjoys human interaction and would be a perfect starter lead-line pony for a child just starting out.
We think that she is definitely worth the extra care involved... Come meet her today!
