According to my owners I am a pony because I am just 12 hh, but in my heart I am twice that tall and definitely a horse.

Before coming to Silent Fox Farm, my prior owner didn’t really have a job for me at the barn, so I spent my day eating everything given to me, and I was overweight when Ellen first saw me: nearly 800 pounds! But Ellen knows a “diamond in the rough” when she sees one, and she believed in me.

After I arrived at Silent Fox Farm, I started eating a healthier diet, reducing my calories, and exercising daily. I also got a lot of love and attention to keep me focused on improving. I am fit and happy now and I love to jump.

I really enjoy training the kids, and I have even worked with some as young as two. Maybe because Ellen showed me tenderness and patience, I understand that I need to be patient with them and they will improve.  Nothing makes me prouder as a pony than to see one of my little ones take me to a fence with confidence.
