Calaway’s life work has not been to entertain children, but as it turns out, he’s pretty good at it. He has done his jobs – first as a show horse, then as a breeding stallion – well. Yesterday we decided to test him out for a new job; children’s pony. First, Janette’s 6 year old granddaughter led him around. They were getting along well, so we put her 4 year old brother on his back. He didn’t even flinch. (This probably isn’t the first time he’s been ridden – we can’t remember.) After wandering around happily for awhile (closely supervised), they declared him to have passed. He’s been retired from breeding, and is for sale as a pet. We have also recently added several beautiful shetland/mini crosses to the Horses for Sale tab.
