Popcorn (The Popcorn Factory) is a wonderful Welsh sorrel pony gelding standing about 47” (11 hands 3”) He is about 18-19 years old- In very good health and needs no intense measures to remain healthy or keep his weight. He has been there and done it. We are only selling to an approved home so he can continue being loved by his favorite humans-children. Our daughter has outgrown him and needs to move on to a full sized horse at this time, although she would rather not. I am warning you-tears will be shed.
Popcorn is as good as gold. He prefers children to adults, although he is obedient to both. He stands to be bathed, trimmed, groomed, and clipped. He trailers and loads like a dream-although he like to pee in the trailer after a long ride, so letting him chill before loading is a thought. He ponys, follows, or leads on trail rides. He keeps up with the big guys-and not just the lazy big guys but those that can move out; he can pace himself-it's amazing. He will also ride out ahead willingly or alone and not try shenanigans to turn around and go back to the barn or buddies. He has been horse camping over nights. He does not spook, spin, bite, kick, rear, or act adverse in any way toward his humans. He stands tied without fussing or pawing. He will follow a child around on a lead rope all day. He has been exposed to barrels, poles, pennant race, etc. but he is NOT a fast speedy game pony. He rides English or Western and has jumped low jumps, but his favorite thing is trail riding and being loved on by kiddos.
He has never foundered, and I have references from our vet and our trimmer concerning his health, hooves, and demeanor. He has just had his yearly vet visit, at which he had coggins drawn, his teeth done, and his sheath cleaned. .He receives regular hoof and health care. He comes with vet records. We have had him for 6 years and he has never made us sorry to call him ours.
He will come with his personal belongings: Saddle, saddle pads, bridle, fly masks, and I think I can find a sheet to fit him too. These items are nice and not junk. We love him and want him to go to someone who will keep him for his remaining years-so someone who has a couple kiddos who want to learn how to navigate this horse life love thing. I will be honest- as I want him to remain with whomever decides they want him to be their kiddos' buddy.
He is of great heart value to us. We are invested in his welfare. His price will reflect his pony greatness. If you are interested please PM me for videos and further information. We will consider all interested parties, and offers.
