Halo

DOB: 6/10/10 I joined the herd in 2015.  I am an unregistered Welsh pony mare,  grey in color and a golden highlighted mane.  I think my golden mane is why they call me halo but it could be because I’m so sweet natured.

Hank

DOB: 1/01/04 I joined the herd in 2008.  I am a Quarter pony, light palomino gelding.  Mama Gwen Gwen says I’m her best lesson pony.  I’m really proud of that, if anybody thinks they are going to be a better lesson pony than me they better get ready to work hard.
