Pixie has been with me since she was 6 months old. She has always been a friendly pony who has grown up with my grand-children, chickens,dogs and other horses and ponies. She is a calm pony, which made her an ideal candidate to be a mental health therapy pony. She was a therapy pony, on loan, for 3 years and came back home when the loaners health changed.
