Pixie Dust was a cute little Welsh/Arab cross mare I purchased a few years ago. She didn't enjoy being ridden much, but tolerated it to an extent. We think she POSSIBLY had some rough treatment in her past somewhere as she had some issues with sudden movements, being tied and some riding issues where she would become quite frightened over simple things. So the decision was made to retire her as a riding pony and she has been leased out by a friend of ours to use as a broodmare for his program. She is a great mom and recently had a gorgeous sorrel colt for him. He has decided to lease her again and has bred her for 2013. Upon her return to us, when/if he decides to not lease her in the future, we will pick a nice welsh pony or Arabian to cross her with. And when the time comes, she will be retired as a baby sitter with our weanlings. She will remain with us for the rest of her life.
