Description

Punkin is a sweet but sassy mini mare who came to GSH from an exotic animal auction along with her 7-9 month old colt Diesel, and a 5-7 month old pony mule Emmett.  She is reported to be broke to ride and drive.  We are unsure of her age and will be having our vet age her, but she appears to be a younger mare.  She's friendly and easy to handle, though she can be a little tough to catch as she likes to play keep away.  The girl can run!  But she stops on a dime for a treat or the shake of a bucket of feed.  She has great ground manners, stands tied, picks up her feet nicely, likes being groomed, leads and loads into a trailer.  She was good for oral deworming and other than her keep away game for catching seems to just be a very nice girl. We have had a small child on her back but had to get mini tack to evaluate her further for riding.  She had no problems with being backed and we were able to lead her around.  She's a smaller mini so we believe she would be best suited as a lead line or tiny tot horse - or possibly a riding horse for a confident smaller child.
