Blacky and Teddy came to Heaven's Gate in 2013. A very nice animal welfarist took a stand for the two minis when their previous owner died and only few people took care of the left behind ponies.
Both were in a bad state, the vet even suggested to euthanize Blacky. His lungs were weak plus he wasn't able to run due to bad laminitis. Of course we did everything in our power to do and a couple of weeks later his health became much better. Blacky can run and both minis' lungs are cured. Blacky is a phenomenon considering that two vets didn't see another chance but to euthanize him. Nobody trusted me that Blacky would get well again.
