Whinnying is Everything

It all started with one pony… and now, Giddy Up Ranch is home to several ponies, horses, pigs, alpacas, a llama, dogs, parrots, camels, a zebra, a yak, goats, sheep, chickens, and more!  Ponies however, will always hold a special place in our hearts.  These gentle creatures look like small horses, with stocky bodies, proportionally shorter legs, large eyes, and thicker manes and tails.  There are over 200 breeds of ponies.  Historically, ponies have been used for riding and freight transport.  They helped to haul loads of coal in underground mines during the Industrial Revolution.  The Shetland pony is one of the better known breeds.  It is one of the smallest, but also one of the strongest!  Pound for pound, ponies are actually stronger than horses.  They can pull more than they can carry.  Ponies have unique personalities, but for the most part, are very intelligent, friendly, and sometimes a bit stubborn.
