Scout was born here 8 years ago. I put out the call to friends that I needed a companion for a TB Mare that was truly goofy. Goofy! She couldn't make friends with anyone. So I thought a pony would be calming. She didn't make friends with 'Penny Pony' either.
Penny Pony was an adorable Shetland. Very wild though. A law unto herself. A friend bought her off the meat truck for me following the Sugar Creek Auction. Scout was the surprise....we figured out that Penny Pony was preggers about 3 months before Scout was born.
When it was time to wean Scout.... Penny went to be a companion to a friends horse. Scout has of course stayed here on the farm. He gives pony rides to Sisterella's kids. Officially of course his only function is to boss around Obie. And he does a good job of that. Amazing that something so small can be sooooooo bossy. He has one blue eye and one brown. And is adorable and naughty just like a pony should be. His stall plaque says: Scout ~ Loved by all, owned by none.
