History of Royal Pony Farm

PAGE 5

With the rich history of Royal Pony Farm it is only fitting that some Royal ponies have gone on to have very interesting lives. Two such ponies are "Boomer" and "Schooner". When the Oklahoma "Sooner Schooner" was in need of a pair of white ponies to pull it, Royal Pony Farm was happy to provide them. The photos below are of Boomer and Schooner both as foals and after they left Royal Pony Farm.

At right, they are shown pulling the Sooner Schooner at half time.

Included on this page will be a few more historic photos from the Royal Pony Farm collection. We hope you enjoy them!

At Left: Arris Richardson and Karma Leland enjoying themselves at one of the many pony shows they attended in the last several years with Karma's husband Bob and Donna showing ponies.

Karma Leland passed away in late April 2004 and will be greatly missed by the Royal Pony Farm family. She was a wonderful friend to Arris and always a very supportive wife to Bob.
