(Much better than store-bought!)
Now, on to the next subject- our Hackney pony, Havah. Last year a friend of ours (Who owns a boarding facility) was moving and had to get rid of a few of her own horses. Havah was one that she had recently accepted from a family that got her for their daughter after her horse passed away, thinking it would comfort her. The daughter was too sad to care for her though and gave her to our friend. (Havah's first owners were an Amish family that used her for their buggy horse.) We have wanted a horse our whole life but Mom thought we should start out with something smaller, so Havah was the perfect fit! (She is only around 12 hands high) As I said, our friend owned a small boarding stable with several other horses. So Havah, being the smallest, got picked on a lot. :(
When we got her she had lost a lot of weight and been bitten/ kicked by a large gelding there, as seen in the picture below.
Nevertheless, she was a cute little pony and soon warmed up to us!
So, now that you've seen what she did look like, time for the "new horse" she is now that we've had her a full year! ;-) (October fifth 2012 is when we brought her home!)
(Thanks to God and a lot of hay!)

And a few more photos...
Havah and I.
Well, I hope this post has not been too boring for those of you who are not equine lovers!
I was going to add an outfit post at the end but it is far too cold outside-
let alone it's pouring rain!
Ahh, Michigan weather.
We will try to get another post up this week, probably Saturday but maybe before. ;-)
Hope you enjoyed Havah's Story!
