that was making the pony spook, they cured her of it in like two days! And the way they did it, I personally would've reported them for animal abuse. That poor pony, having things flapped at her *all the freaking time*... Yes, in order to cure a pony/horse of something like that, you should get them used to the thing spooking them, but not by forcing them to endure it 24/7! That's just cruel.
