Introducing Midge, a 35" 12 year old paint pony mare.  This little mare is friendly and easy to get along with.  For those not familiar, smaller ponies are used for lab testing. They are gathered up every fall for this purpose. Most are not friendly or very suitable to be repurposed as kid's ponies. But Midge came up to us and was sweet and friendly.  She was agreeable to being straddled and walking with someone, she picked up her feet and wasn't hard to handle, so we crammed her on the trailer and she shared a stall with Margaret. 
 

Midge will be available at the CHC Christmas party December 4th. We will likely auction her "halter" (and she will go with it.) We hope this generates some funds for some of the horses that don't attract quite as much attention.
