My Little Pony...

Ok, so she's not actually a pony...Caspians are technically horses, despite being only 40-44 inches high at the withers.

But I have one, and she's for sale. Her name is Tala, named after my husband, Tal, because she was born on his birthday. :)

Here is her father:

(There are many more pictures of him here: Link )

And here is my son, Emrys, taking a ride on her mother. Notice that the reigns are not attached to a bit, but simply clicked to the(rather loose)halter:

And here, for your viewing pleasure, is Tala on the day she was born:

And here she is now:

She really takes after her father. :)

She is too young to be ridden, just yet--with Caspians, you wait until they're four, and Tala is two--but this would be a great time to get to know her, get some ground work in, and let her settle in to her new home before getting to work. She hasn't been handled much and can be a bit of a handful at this point...she really needs a special person to bond to her and commit to working with her.

Her underbelly is getting lighter all the time, and I suspect that as she ages she'll lighten, as her mother did...but right now, her coat really shines in the sun; it has a beautiful golden sheen when hit at the right angle.

Despite the rarity of Caspians and the high sell price of her parents, I'm willing to sell Tala for $1,000. I just don't have the time to work with her, and she has too much potential to be "just a broodmare".
