Cupid the Shetland Pony Pet of the Day
Name: Cupid
Age: Eight years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Shetland Pony
Home: Groningen, the Netherlands
   Meet Cupid, a small pony with a big story. At first sight he looks like your standard small pony. And in a lot of ways he is. He's sweet, happy, has lots of energy and of course as most pony's is a little rascal from time to time. I've had Cupid since he was just 7 months old, my first pony, so indeed a very special one.

    Last summer after a long battle with hoof problems we where about to put him down. Since I wouldn't forgive myself if we didn't try everything before putting him down I took him to a special clinic. At this clinic they did lots of tests and finally the missing puzzle piece revealed itself. Cupid's internal hoof was damaged from an infection in 2012. We had no idea that his front feet where damaged this much. After months of therapy and lots of love, as of this April my little boy can now call himself a healthy horse again.

   Since almost a year ago he wouldn't have lived and now he has years to come, I though he deserved a shot at stardom. This little man has battled bravely and won! The proof that never giving up, hope and a sprinkle of miracle dust does pay of. I wouldn't know what to do without my little man, my hero.
