A chestnut Haflinger gelding, Whiskey is the elder of the herd. He is a champion driving pony with a lot of personality. Whiskey knows immediately who is safe and who has lessons to learn. When people show-up incongruently he doesnít stick around for them to figure it out. If he doesnít hang with you, itís because thereís something inside that isnít cohesive. You have to connect deeply to yourself to have Whiskey be with you. What a great teacher.
