“French Fry” is a snow white “except the mud” pony mare that is just the pony for them little cowboys and cowgirls that need bombproof and puppy dog gentle. She does ride on her own without leadline and is just one step at a time slow poke when she does. She has been a party pony and used on a pony carousel. She’s perfectly safe as a backyard pony and one they can spend hours playing with even if they are not riding her. They can climb on her over her under her all the things a little one is gonna do till they learn better. She is 12 hands tall and 13 yrs old. We are asking $550 for French Fry and $250 for the brand new saddle that is on her in the video. It is a 12 inch buckskin stiched American made saddle and been on pony one time. Located at Gilmer Tx.
