It’s so hard to believe that today my little pony is 17 years old!  She was such an unexpected gift to me in so many ways.  When she was born a month early, with twisty crooked legs, no one knew what would become of her.  She was so little and so awkward that she got lost in the foal crop.  It didn’t take long for us to realize how incredibly smart she is and when her leg surgeries were a success, it became my goal to one day compete with her.  And I did.  She is one of the kindest, smartest, biggest hearted, best horses I have ever ridden.  She’s true, and has been from day one.  I am more proud of Tiny and our accomplishments than anyone can imagine.  So here’s to Tiny – and to a year of great health and happiness at her new farm!
