Frankie is a Shetland pony gelding estimated to have been born around 2009. He came to the farm in early 2016 after recently going blind and needing to have a safe place to live out the rest of his years. Frankie is a dynamo. Right now, he is still adjusting to going blind. He has been blind in one eye for several years but recently lost sight in his second eye. He hasn’t figured out yet that it is better to slow down and think things out instead of just plowing forward and seeing what happens. But Frankie is learning fast here with us as we are working with him. We are seeing his confidence return and his ability to slow down and think things through to get better. He’s not been here for long but we all love him already. He has quite the spirit and willingness to adapt to whatever comes his way. And we can see already that he has figured out he is home and that he will never have to move again.

We look forward to sharing many years to come with him and watching him find his place here in the herd and at our farm. Welcome home Frankie!

“I know I may be little and cute but never underestimate the energy behind my charm. I have always known I’m in this world to do big things. It’s just that I didn’t know what they were. But now … now I’m on the way to finding them. Stay tuned….”
