Kanga is a sweet, approximately 12 hh chestnut pony mare. She is halter broke but is a bit hard to catch. She will need someone with the time, patience and experience to work with her and gain her trust. She does lead well and likes to be brushed. She will also need work with her feet. It won’t take much with consistent handling to get this girl to love her people. She just needs attention and consistency. She could make a great small kids pony with the right training.
Location: Nelson, BC (in foster)
Adoption fee: $500
