ADOPTED: Tucker is looking for his forever home!

Tucker is a calm and quiet pony-sized gelding that VEWS pulled from a kill pen in early May 2022. He is an in-your-pocket pony that is just about as sweet and gentle as they come. He has a fused hind hock that limits the amount of weight he can carry and the length of time he can be ridden. He would be the perfect first pony for a young child to be led around for short walks or would make a great companion horse. We are now accepting applications for Tucker.
