Yesterday, we introduced Angel. Upon reading the blog about her, one of my Facebook friends recognized her as a foal that she bred and sold as a weanling. It turns out Angel is a registered Shetland born in 2008 named Isherwood Magical Enchantress. She was sold with 2 other ponies, one of who she continued to live with until she came to us yesterday. After being sold, it isn’t clear if she changed hands again, but she ended up in a neglect situation and was rescued as at about the age of 18 months. She went as a foster (with her friend Buttercup) to the family who ended up adopting her and kept her until now.
So far, she is absolutely glued to Devil and gets nervous whenever he isn’t with her. We will introduce another friend from the herd in the next few days. This morning she spent a little time lunging. She has some amazing front leg action.
