History: Fancy was saved at an auction while in foal for $10. She was wild and ran through like cattle absolutely terrified. Fancy had her baby and was adopted out for many years. She is being returned through no fault of her own as her previous home could no longer care for her at this stage in their lives.
Training Bio: Fancy is a great pony full of life and very, very curious. She has been trained in ground work, direct and drive, will go over jumps, and moves well on the lead hand. They used Chris Cox’s Fundamentals part 1. You have to introduce her to new task and when she understands it isn’t there to hurt her she is willing to try anything. She has had a saddle on, but not ridden. She could be a companion to any horse or if you have access to a trainer she has no physical reason she could not be trained to ride.
Barn Bio: She would rather be out in the pasture than in a stall, but likes the comfort of the stall when the weather is bad. She is easy to halter, she just needs a patient handler. Previous home never left the halter on her due to possible injury, so she has been caught everyday just to reinforce it. Leads well, loads well, stands for trimming on the front feet and still needs training on the back feet. She had previously been sedated for the backs. She is a super easy keeper, she eats free choice coastal hay, and Thrive Feed. She LOVES carrots, and gets spoiled with them everyday. She really, really loves carrots just FYI. She is easy to blanket although we have not had to blanket but maybe three times. We do take the back straps off for her. She loves water, she has a bucket to drink from and one to play in. She loves bath time, and loves the water to run over her face.
