    Well they are kinda little...and only 2 are technically ponies....but oh well.

    Rescued the first two from the kill pen at an auction. The mare has an inoperable bone chip in her knee, doesn't slow her down any in the pasture, but she isn't sound for any sort of "real" riding. Bareback little walk/trot hacks are alright.

    The gelding is her son, he was badly foundered and managed to sprain both suspensory ligaments in his front legs. He has sound days and not so sound days. He is a ton of fun.

    The chestnut was a case of a poorly matched beginner owner with a hot tempered opinionated red head who isn't particularly easy to ride. So I got her for free because I could stay on... She is also a lot of fun and likes to keep you on your toes.

    Pictures are from the fall, I'll see if I can get new ones some time soon if anyone is interested.

    First 2 are fjords :) the mare was imported from Holland and came with a passport and both are registered. I've ridden dozens of them and just love the breed.

    First picture is my current gelding At his first ever show, second picture was my previous gelding just having fun in the jump field. :)
