Grey Shetland Pony Gelding: Lessons, Show Team, Pony Squad
Pudge was formerly known at the Equine Rescue League as Hi Lo Silver and he resided there for many years, working on the pony ride and outreach teams. Ponies, especially small ones, are notoriously hard to place for adoption because children outgrow them and so most live out their lives in a rescue. However, when the ERL needed to downsize due to moving, we happily took Pudge on to help with our outreach and lessons!
He is a spunky little ball of personality and his gorgeous fleabitten grey coat and glorious mane and tail make him a magnet for kids and visitors. Pudge is insulin resistant and had an episode of laminitis in 2009 which left us struggling to stabilize him for several months as it was compounded with injury. With the help of our vet and farrier, chiropractic and accupuncture visits, exercise and a special diet, Pudge is once again happy and healthy and sound! Laminitic ponies and horses can be managed with quality care and we are happy to teach people how we do it!
