These two girls have come a long way in their partnership.Young girl and rescue pony. I love how comfortable the pony is in her girls arms. If you have been around horses much you know many horses don’t tolerate their faces being held for long, it makes them feel vulnerable. Trapped, in a way. They are true flight animals, always on the lookout for a predator. When they are frightened or threatened they flee. In this case, the pony trusts her girl to watch over her. She is part of her herd. As a horse person that is something you earn through time and respect and care. Clearly the effort has been made. It is simply a beautiful thing to see evolve.
