Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
That pony looks like the one my older cousin would assign to me to ride as a kid. She told me that the pony was magical---that he could once fly but they had to cut off his wings because he would fly above the stables and pee.That seemed to satisfy me temporarily. I could hardly wait to be able to ride a horse though.
That's what my pony looked like in the winter time. Now a days, the helmet police would be all over this picture - so unsafe blah. blah blahCheck out the Olympia Shetland Grand National on Youtube.
Love your older cousin's story for you, Maybelline!
My sister and I had a Shetland pony growing up. Cricket was not the nicest pony around. I remember trying to saddle her and having her bloat up at fat as she could get.... then while I was out riding the saddle would slowly start sliding sideways and off I would fall. If plan "a" didn't work for her she would walk as close to a fence or tree as she could and scrape me off. I remember many walks back up to the horse shed only to find Cricket happily standing in the shade snickering at me.... Lea
Having never had the pleasure of owning a horse or a pony I have many questions about them. For starters does it not bother the animal to be walking in the cold snow ?
Dashing through the snow . . . . .this photo makes me want to put up my Christmas tree!!
PETA would probably complain that the sled is overloaded.
