Watch out world….. Cuteness overload alert!!!!
Mika and Napolean are a pair of older teen, 10hh Miniatures. Mika is a sweet mare and Napolean a wonderful gelding. They will be offered together to a wonderful long-term home that can provide a loving and compassionate place for them to enjoy their golden years. They are kind, gentle and are handled daily – making them phenomenal ponies for little ones to handle. Mika and Napolean are bright and engaging. They love and adore their people, and human company. They are looking for a non-riding home.
Mika is a stocky little bright bay mare that looks like a British Therwell pony (look up ‘Therwell Pony’ online if you’ve not seen them before)!!! She is patient, kind and very cooperative. She is super easy for all handling, grooming, feet picking, cross tie etc etc.
Napolean, a beautiful black gelding, is slightly smaller framed than Mika (but still just a cute). He is very similar to Mika with regards to disposition, handling and temperament. He does sometime become tricky for catching if an adult approaches him. He loves people that are more on his eye level, or ones that are willing to get down to his level. This means he really likes little kids! He also likes to test people just a teeny tiny bit when picking his feet.
They have been with their current owner for 5yrs. Prior to that they were at a rescue with an unknown history. The rescue is no longer in operation, so their Mom reached out to us. We were very impressed with their overall condition and handling. It’s clear that they have a super owner who has provided all that they need for them to remain very polite, willing and happy ponies.
Both horses recently had their teeth floated in 2021 but will need their coggins and all shots. Their current owner is willing to take care of that before they head off to their new home. They both wear grazing muzzles to keep their weight under control. Napolean had a minor rub from his that is being tended to. Neither have had any major health issues. Mika does sometimes have a runny eye which can be treated with a simple eye ointment from the vet. Napolean sometimes has a little issue with fungus/itchy ears and prefers a gentle approach when haltering. He likes to wear a flymask with ears. They have field turnout with run in and access to stalls as needed seasonally.
