Update from Connor and Sanka's new owner

14h, 8 year old, bay pony gelding. The FLO picked this horse up from an Indian Reservation and was told that he was wild. The FLO owner decided to hold him back for now, so he halter broke him. This guy is a little resistant to having the halter put on but once it is on, he walked calmly and obediently behind him.

I asked Sara and Joanna if they have time to join the board and post updates and here was her reply.......

No problem, we love and adore both of them....we are thrilled they are working out so well. I watched Sanka go today....she is still a little stiff but Joanna wants to use her through the weekend before having the vet give her a little boost. Yesterday a small adult rode her. It was her 3rd time on a horse and she couldn't have been better. The lady kept going on and on about how much fun she was having riding her.

I have ridden Connor several times and he has been really really good. He did a little lesson with a 10 year old and was great...even a little lazy! His mane is in braids at the moment...in an attempt to get all 5 inches thick to lay on the right side. All the kids ask about him everyday. We are sure he will have lots of little friends always.

Awwwww.... I can just see the Connor-Man giving a lesson to a little kid. What a cool ending to this story!!! I hope they won't mind me stopping by sometime and seeing Connor in action! :)
Feel the Spirit, Keep on Riding!

That is so cool!

Yes, I tried to get Connor's mane on one side too...good luck on that, ha ha. I put it in braids as well. The second you take it out of braids...Thelwell pony, all over again. I think someone is going to have to just kill a day and properly pull it! :D
