To our surprise, we found out the next day, this little pony wasn't supposed to be at auction. Her owner had given her to a friend just two months prior, the friend assuring the family she would be safe forever with him. Instead, little "Bella" went to auction..
A beloved pet was just a short step from becoming an overused pony on a sweep, or neglected in someone's backyard.
Instead, she will be living in the land of paradise (Ventura Farms!), for the rest of her adorable days.
