Unbelievably darling Pixie is just about 14 hands and we believe that she was foaled in 2008. She has very nice ground manners, is a flashy mover, is friendly and well socialized. She is green under saddle, so she isn’t quite ready for a child, unless it was a pretty solid junior rider. She is smart, willing and learning very quickly, so it will not be long before she is ready for a younger rider. We really cannot say enough about her, she is very special. Pixie is currently not available.
Pixie The Pony was initially rescued in 2009 by our good friend Shirley Puga. Pixie, was a baby at the time…at an auction with a brute ( thankfully since banned from the Bakersfield auction )She was ” ridden ” in with a huge maniac on her little frame in a gigantic saddle engulfing her petite and underdeveloped body. Her eyes were full of pain and terror as he bullied and beat her. The bridle was huge as well, as was the severe bit drew blood, Shirley sprang to action saving the pony filly. We cried when we heard then…and again when Shirley called recently looking for help for Pixie. Pixie had found refuge and a family at Marley Farms…she also found her best friend, a little doll of a girl named Dakota. Dakota’s family lost their home and had to place over 200 animals. Pixie arrived at Red Bucket ( hauled by another special friend Doug Lake ) a bit bewildered and stiff from a long and hot journey. She is settling in nicely, making friends and enjoying her new ranch…and her red bucket. She is enveloped by Red Riding Hoods who have cried for Pixie, and the loss that Dakota and her family are suffering. Pixie will begin her saddle training this summer, we will carefully prepare her for anew life, and a special little girl who will love her forever. Many thanks to Shirley, Doug, and Dakota.
She is cute as a button, pretty much any little girls fantasy….and a trainers dream come true. Pixie found herself at one time trembling, bleeding, and brutalized…on an auction platform being traumatized by a kill buyer who is known for being especially heartless and barbaric. Saved by a friend….and for the last year a resident at Red Bucket, the picture of perfection, and model of golden manners and a delightful temperament. While ponies get a bad wrap…this pony is a model citizen, and a delight in every way! Kimberly began her saddle training earlier this year, and Pixie has proven to be a smart and willing student who is showing off smooth transitions, side passes…and is starting to nail her fly changes. We have started her over fences, and no surprise to any of us, Pixie has proven to be honest, willing, and brave. What has proven to be a treat are her knees…holy smokes! Enjoy the video, and keep in mind the pony has only jumped twice…and it is her first time over this make shift obstacle! Unwanted horse? We don’t buy buy that label for a nano second!
