Aaaaall the people with carrots 🙂

This is my story:

It all started when my human’s physical therapist suggested ponies for therapy! My human has Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, a connective tissue disorder that affects her whole body by making it really loosey-goosey! My human is also really tired some days. In October, my Grandma and Grandpa M decided that with failing health and something about having had too many shenanigans in life, it was best to find another human to love me and feed me cookies. My hooman found my ad on a local buy and sell site, and decided I sounded pretty perfect. I mean of course I’m perfect! Being part unicorn and all! This girl came to see me one evening. She was really weak and tired, but I knew as soon as I saw her, she needed me and I needed her. She kept going around the corner and I’d get sad, but before she left that evening she cradled my big head and I fell asleep in her arms. That was my way of saying “please?” I was really sad. That girl left that night and my Grandpa’s sent me out to the other horses. But you know what? That hooman came back a couple weeks later. I saw her hand my Grandma a piece of paper, and that girl came to put me in a trailer. They brought me to a new barn, which was pretty scary. But my new human was there so I was OK. My human rode me lots over the next few months. I got ouchies now and then, and that girl would sometimes come into my paddock crying or like she was really tired. Those days I just stand there really nice until I get bored and do something silly with my lips! My human laughs and then it’s OK! But really. I’ve helped my human so much. She said she canceled her wheelchair order, whatever that is. Sounds pretty scary. My human also often gives me carrots or cookies, and we go for rides! I love to run fast when my legs aren’t ouchy. I tried telling my human and her helpers I was ouchy, but they didn’t bother much. But then when this lady called a vet came, she did my teeth so they stopped poking my cheek, and also made me stand really still while they took pictures of my back knees! The strange lady told my girl I have arthritis and the girl cried alot. But I tried telling her all along I understand her bad days!! Looking into the future, the girl says maybe I can find a few little girls and boys kinda like my human, that we can help! Sounds pretty cool putting up with some sillies in exchange for a carrot or a cookie, right?

Let’s play 20 questions:

I know I get a treat when I:
Smile, or am a good boy!
My favorite toy is:
Definitely the big rubber ball! I used to think it would kill me, I know silly right?
My favorite food is
Oooh I love grain cuz my hooman knows just exactly what is good for me and my taste buds, but I also aDORE oranges!
I’m really proud of these special skills:
I can push my big rubber ball around, and make my hooman smile all the time!
I know my human needs me when:
She comes into my paddock without calling hi, or is crying!
When I want attention, I:
Usually use my big silly lips to poke mom's butt!
My sleeping space is:
I love to sleep in my breakfast, otherwise known as a pile of hay!
My favorite thing to do is:
I love to just eat grass! I'm pretty chill!
The hardest thing about my job is:
My human sometimes is really tired and can't ride as nicely!
I get so excited when:
I see the little girls coming with my grain bowl!
My human laughs hysterically when I:
Make silly faces!
My human would describe my personality as:
Pretty lazy, but has a go button! She also calls me a unicorn!!
The most adorable thing about me is:
I'm always ready for a snuggle!
The most human-like thing that I do is:
When my human ties me up, sometimes I stamp my feet to get her attention!
I can’t stand it when my human:
Makes me work on days she doesn't realize I'm ouchy!
The funniest/craziest thing I ever did is:
When I was a tiny baby at my Grandpa's place, I jumped a 6 foot fence because my friends were eating grain on the other side!
My biggest quirk is:
I like to make faces to try and convince mom I need cookies! I also have silly days where I just don't want to work like a grown up horse!
If I could talk, I would tell my human:
I love you hooman. Please don't leave me! Oooooh scratches? Cookies? Carrots? PUHLEEEASEEE
