Cute Pony

Ok, I have a question for you. I need something I can do to convince my parents that I need a pony. I really, really want this girl.

Not only is she adorable, but she's been on craigslist for a while so the owner is now offering her for care lease instead of the $700 she was asking so it may be that I can make payments on her or at least take her home and see if she works out.

Tell me that is not the cutest face you've ever seen?!

While there's not a whole lot I can do with a pony, I can tell you I would have a blast. I can show her in hand and pony her on the trails. I can use her for lessons - her owner says she's not great for young beginner children so I can just use her to teach kids to groom cause they can't reach Jazz's back and possibly with some work I can use her as a leadline.

She is 12 years old and 11.2hh. She is on the chunky side, but nothing some work and a grazing muzzle probably couldn't help. So, what do you think? What are the best, I need a pony arguments that you can think of?


  1. Awww. She is super duper cute. I love that little face.

    As for needing her, I dunno. I never even rode a pony outside of pony rides at the fair until last summer. (14.1 halflinger). MOST AMAZING THING EVER.

    Love ponies.

  2. Can you afford her food, teeth and feet?

    Do you have time to give her the attention she'll need?

    Do you have the patience to deal with the training issues that are going to pop up with her?

    I think if the answer is yes to all those then that should be a good enough argument. Along with that photo, of course. That face is adorable!

  3. I know isn't she so adorable!

    @smazourek - Yes, yes and yes.

    My problem is that my parents are usually in favor of me downsizing my horses and horse activities in general so they'd probably vote no on the whole pony thing. We'll see though. It can't hurt to try!
