Logan is a white paint pony with stunning blue eyes who we took in in July 2011 from a riding stable because his behavior was dangerous to children riders. Logan had been to the auction twice before, and had Mylestone not saved him, he would most likely have gone back a third time. Although said to be 8 or 9, he was actually in his late teens at the time.

We immediately discovered that Logan was indeed very head shy, as if always waiting to be hit or beaten about the head. From his behavior it appeared that he may have been experiencing pain in his neck, and also, from how he held his head, that he may have been used as a driving horse and once in a tight head set.

Logan is not a dangerous pony, as much as one in pain when he was ridden, as verified by our veterinarian. He has severe arthritis in his neck. Due to past abuse, he is fearful of being touched, brushed, or of much contact at all. We are working with him slowly, to entice him to begin to trust. He has come a long way. He is actually quite sweet. He has his own paddock where he spends his afternoons and evenings, but enjoys coming into the barn during the day.

Logan will stay with us as a sanctuary horse. We hope you will help support Logan's continuing journey in learning that the world can be a safe and caring place to be. He has made so much progress – he is now friendlier and more willing to come over and say hello. He would very much appreciate your sponsoring him, or if you would prefer, you may donate to Logan's care.

Logan was next to Shadow when he first arrived and they became good buddies.
