Flyboy was a 35 yo haflinger gelding. He is Sabrina's first pony. Sabrina won her first blue ribbon at her third show on Flyboy. He would stand for hours while she learned to braid his mane. Flyboy is the epitomy of a bomb proof pony. He does have to get body clipped twice a year since he moved to Florida but he doesn't mind at all. He is now mostly retired but Sabrina still gets on him bareback on occassion. We'll always be indebted to Flyboy for helping to teach Sabrina how to ride and groom for show. He's everyone's little buddy!
UPDATE : On September 27, 2008 at about 6:3p, Flyboy was humanely euthanized. He passed away as complications from old age set in. He did not suffer and his last day was spent with Sabrina and a lot of people around him. He loved people as much as he loved treats. He thanked Sabrina all of his life for the one moment of selflessness that she had to give him. A peaceful ending without pain. She gave him that and now Flyboy has his wings. Say hello to The Aviator and sing the barney song with him! We'll see you at the Rainbow Bridge little guy. Rest in peace. You were the best pony we could have ever dreamed of for Sabrina. Rest in peace.
