Sable the pony was abandoned, with his pal Rufio, at a general livestock auction in 2009.
Though they were both friendly and curious, they showed signs of being mistreated in the past and so posed a bit of a challenge.
It took nearly a month for me to even be able to touch them.
I was worried about their feet deteriorating, and we needed to get them gelded, so we called Jonathan Field and he graciously donated his time to come out and work with them.
Jonathan invited Sable to come over for a few days so that they could continue to work with him. Liz did most of his training there and he came home a changed pony!
Sable was then gelded, had his teeth done and his feet as well.
We continued to work with him nearly every day and he was turning into a very lovely boy.
Sable was Adopted and though his family loves him, he needs more attention than they can give him. He still needs further training to bring him fully around. Please contact us if you are interested in Sable and we will pass your info along.
