Danny Boy
Danny Boy

We welcomed Danny Boy, a very cute pony, in early February 2016. His owner had adopted horses from Mylestone over 15 years ago, and had taken in many more horses in need over the years. She passed away suddenly and her family needed help with placing her horses. She had wonderful friends -- Audrey, Laurie, Danielle and others -- devoted to helping with finding new homes for 14 of her horses.

I knew Danny Boy from over 20 years ago; he was purchased when a barn was closing where he was a lesson pony. He is blind in one eye, but gets around fine. Now 30+ years old, he will live out his remaining days with us here at Mylestone. We hope he will participate in our grooming program with the special needs kids as he enjoys attention and is very friendly.

Danny is currently going out with Daniel, another older pony who has very limited vision. Danny comes in the barn at night and is across from the feed room. He is always looking forward to a meal coming his way. Since he is older, we have him on a senior feed and a hay pelleted feed which we soak with water to make into an easy mash to eat, which he relishes.

Danny has had many years of excellent care, and we will continue that care here at the farm. This sweet senior boy has all he needs but for one thing … you! Won't you please consider sponsoring Danny and help support him? Or if you prefer, make a donation towards his care and just let us know it's for Danny Boy.

Take a look at photos of Danny Boy when he arrived.
