FOR SALE: Macaroni (Buckskin Pinto Kids Pony)

Macaroni SELLS to the highest bidder at the Twin Cities Appaloosa, Paint, & Quarter Horse Catalog Sale on April 4th, 2020! She does not have a hip number yet but as soon as it has been assigned we will update this page. Phone bids welcome — just call Simon Horse Company at 507-263-4200 to set it up!

As pictured here, Macaroni is used to having animals like goats, guinea hens, and chickens under her feet while she’s being ridden so she is very well exposed to a busy atmosphere! Not pictured here are some of our other animals that she is used to having all over the place, like our pot belly pig, ducks, and other goats!


Keep checking back to this page to see video and more photos of Macaroni! We will continue adding to this page and will post all videos on this page as well leading up to the sale day.

This is a photo of Macaroni and Sienna in fall 2019. She has a trace clip here!

This adorable little pony, known affectionately in the barn as “Macaroni,” is a buckskin pinto with adorable markings, especially her unique white socks! She has a great build and is very stocky for her size. She is very sweet and loves attention, especially from kids! This is another pony that has been used in our program and we would be very happy to keep her if for some reason she doesn’t sell on April 4th!

Sienna and Macaroni. Macaroni is the sweetest!

Often when we sell nice horses and ponies like Macaroni, people ask, “why are you selling?”

It’s a fair question! Macaroni is so cute, versatile, and has such a good temperament so it makes sense that people that don’t know us would ask a question like that.

To that, though, I will tell you that we are very blessed to have a large lesson program with about 15 horses and ponies that are ridden every week in horse camps and lessons. On top of that, we personally own another dozen or so riding horses and ponies. So, we already have a full barn full of horses and ponies just as nice as Macaroni!

Every year, we get one or two horses or ponies with the intention to eventually sell them after they’ve been used in our program. Macaroni is one of those ponies. We love seeing ponies like her go on to new homes to be the star of someone’s life! Consigning these horses and ponies is also something very fun for me (Samantha) and my little sister (Sienna) to do together.

Therefore, we are proud to offer this little pony as well as the other mare we are consigning, Frankie, at the Twin Cities Appaloosa, Paint, & Quarter Horse Catalog Sale on April 4th, 2020!

She rides well with a martingale or without! We just often use one when kids are jumping the horses because then even if the kids are a little clumsy with the position of their hands, it keeps the reins in a more comfortable position for the horse.

Located in Buffalo, MN — but shipping can be arranged anywhere!
