Timmy is one of my two rescue horses who now calls The Franch home. He is a sweet loveable pocket pony who loves everyone. He has never been ridden and I estimate his age to be around nine. He was rescued from a severe neglect situation along with 63 other horses in Lewisville, Texas in 2009 by Anastasia Keyser of Hope for Horses Equine Rescue Inc.
Here is a before photo of a small group of the rescues back in October 2009:
Timmy was less than a year old at the time, so he may have been too young to remember much of what happened, considering how much he trusts people. Most of the rescues were Pony of the Americas, Haflingers and a few other breeds. He has the coloring of a Halflinger, so I just like to say he’s half-Halflinger and half Pony of the Americas, but he’s just really my sweet, cute, funny little boy!
Hope for horses still has horses in need of adoption or sponsorship, check out their website at hopeforhorses.com.
