A Poor Little Pony

I picked up this poor little pony at an auction recently.
He’s been on the trail for too many years and is plum worn out.

He’s only got 1 full leg left and most of his “coat” is missing.
Someone stabilized his neck with a metal “harness” on both sides.

His little “saddle” is still in great condition though and is so sweet.
His rocking base is still in very nice condition also.

I’m not exactly sure what I’ll do with him yet, but I
hope I can somehow fix him up and keep him from being put out to pasture.
I’ll let you know later what I come up with!

Blessings,

Angie

  1. Oh, Angie, what a great project!! Good luck with him i really don’t think he is ready for the glue factory just yet!!

  2. He looks kind of sad, good for you coming to his rescue! He isn’t ready for the glue factor, but may need some glue to bring him back to life! Actually, ( I have horses, paint horses) I am happy to say we don’t have horses going to the glue factory in the US anymore…but there are other sad endings they may see…

    In your ponies case it may have been a burn pile! I cant wait to see what he becomes!

    Your little pony appears to be a paint, or a pinto, by his spots!

  3. He’s so precious and definitely in the right place. You’ll come up with a great idea to bring him back to life.

  4. Why would you be surprised that Debbie would feature your home!?!? It is full of ideas, and DIY and family, all the things that make a house a home no matter what their size. I’ll be waddling over for a peak for sure. And I for one will love it because I love ‘ya man.

  5. Hey Angie,I really enjoyed the tour @ Debbiedoo’s,your home is so comfortable and inviting,this has been one of my favorites…Your creativity is awesome.

  6. Oh what a sad little pony. I imagine you have wonderful plans for him, though. I’ll have to follow so I can see what you do with him!
    I loved your guest post over at Debbiedoo’s, your home is lovely with all the vintage items. And can’t wait to see your projects completed.

  7. Hi Angie … Congratulations … I loved seeing your home featured on Debbiedoo’s. Why should she NOT want to feature your home??? It is so interesting, warm, and inviting. So many DIY beautiful projects show just what you can do when you recycle and re-purpose. I’ve followed you along for a long time and have seen a lot of your rooms, but loved seeing every bit of it again. I love your Pony too. I just know you will find a way to make it beautiful … the stand is wonderful too.

  9. Hi Angie. I saw your feature on Debbiedoos. I love your home and all the hard work you have put into it. I know that feeling. I got so thrilled when I saw your wallpaper. Many years ago, when we lived in another house, I papered the bathroom with the pages out of a reproduction 1880 Sears catalog. It was so much fun that our company ‘always’ had to use the facilities and really stayed a long time in there. Your kitchen is splendid. Thanks for sharing and Happy Weekend..Judy

  10. Oh, I am so glad you rescued him! You can tell he has had a lot of love and given lots of joy and smiles, it would be a shame for him to be discarded. I know you will restore him to good health.
