Riding Lessons

Yesterday the Midget had his first pony ride (on Harley) at Mom and Dad's farm. I'm hoping that he will grow to love riding and that by the time this happens I will have lost enough weight to ride with him. As it is I would need a strong and sturdy draft horse to carry me and that ain't happening!

He was all crocodile tears during the main event but afterwards at the fence told his Nana (Mom) that Harley is "my pony"! We all had a good laugh at that one!

Here's a picture of my old friend, Dan. He is now 22 and as full of himself as ever. Last year he became gravely ill but managed to pull through with the amazing veterinary help of the staff at the New Bolton Equine Center...the same place where Derby winner Barbaro was taken. Hopefully they can save his life as well.

  1. That's a great story! And I agree that the people at the New Bolton Equine Center are indeed amazing.
