POA/Appaloosa Pony Mare: Lessons, Show Team
Cyd was purchased from the New Holland Acution as a yearling and saved from slaughter. She was subsequently adopted out several times and returned due to finances or children outgrowing her as she is a large pony. She sat at the ERL for a year looking for a forever home when they believed she had a siezure while deworming her. We accepted her into our sanctury and learned that she didn't have a siezure, just a BAD HABIT of flipping over when she didn't get her way! She took extensive rehabilitation and training to make her safe.
She is still a sensitive soul, but that comes with her Appaloosa personality. She likes things her way and so in many aspects we accomodate her. She assists with lessons and even competes locally and is known for her stubborness and sometimes frustrating personality! However, she teaches us all empathy, patience and understanding and helps kids address issues of frustration and control. SHe is a vital component in many of our programs!
A Glimpse of Cyd!
