I purchased Daisy for a Christmas present for my daughter last year. Not knowing the pony’s past, I made arrangements to have the pony shipped to Texas. After receiving the pony her previous owner contacted me telling me the pony’s story. She was in a shipping pen for slaughter. She was shaved, rehabbed and sent for training. I couldn’t believe what she was telling me. This beautiful, kind sweet pony was sent to auction? Yes it was true! Why would someone do this? It happens because uneducated people have horses or wind up with horses in their possession. Help educate horse owners! Please remember never send your horse to auction!
