Felix is a male Pokey Husky born June 6, 2008
and last adopted December 25, 2015.
He is 11 years and 7 months old.
Felix is named after the pony I used to work with.
I used to work with ponies and give rides at my local Zoo. One of those ponies was named Felix. He was my favorite! I remember when I was first being trained on him. I was told that he was one of the harder ponies to walk. I believe he may have been mixed with a horse because he was taller than the average pony, but yet slightly smaller than a regular horse. He was tall and he walked fast. Mind you I’m short so here I am trying to keep up the pace with a pony whose shoulder came to my shoulder and still hang onto a child lol
The first day I trained on him, I had my guard down and he bit my thigh. That was the first time any animal’s ever bitten me and it caught me by surprise. My boss told me he was a trouble maker and sure enough he was! He didn’t get along with the other ponies, he liked to be alone. Anytime one of the other ponies would stand too close to him he would chase them away. He also wasn’t too fond of people either. He would try to nibble away at any exposed skin of anybody trying to do anything with him.
But something changed. I was the only one trusted to walk Felix. The more time I walked him, groomed him, and got him ready for rides, the more I got to see what a total sweetheart he was! We began to form a bond. Every morning when it was time to catch the ponies to groom and saddle them up, he’d come right to me. No more running around trying to chase him! He started to only listen to me! He didn’t want anyone else walking him or grooming him. I loved Felix.
Unfortunately, as with all good things, the season came to an end, and due to health reasons I have been unable to go back and work with him. However, I have gone and visited him! I try to go during non-busy times because he definitely still recognizes me and will try to get to me through the fence whenever I can come visit! I miss Felix so much and I love him dearly! I am glad to represent him on foo for the times I wish I could see him but can’t. I love you always and forever Felix! <3
Thank you so much Koda <3 (He will only go back to Koda for ac)
I’ll be keeping him until my brains spill out from zombieism! xD 👈🏽 Caity told me to write that due to harassment lol
