Looking for Lawn Mowers

Liz's fiance likes lawn mowers (and he sure can mow lawns well, as the hay field turned golf course outside my window will attest) so she was perusing Craig's List looking for cool ones one day last week.

They had been thinking of getting a pony recently. Their jobs and finances make big horses problematic, but ponies are cheap and easy and can be a heck of a lot of fun.

However, I am not quite sure how she landed on a pony while seeking little tractors, but she said, "Look at this one, mom, isn't she a cutie?"

And she was, a sweet little pinto, with a pretty head and a kind eye. They went down Saturday to take a look and hauled along a trailer just in case. It was a saga of flat tires, nice guys at Sears who bumped them up in line since they had the baby on the trailer and all, but by almost dark that evening the little lady was stepping carefully down the ramp, checking out her first sight of cows, then launching into lawn lunching like she owned the place.

Only Liz would go looking for a lawn mower and end up with a pony. 

Welcome to Northview, Diamond, AKA McCall's KL Crimson.

Sorry that these pics are not the greatest, but it was nearly dark when she arrived.

Awww! Welcome to the new baby. That pony has found a wonderful home, where folks really love and care for their animals.
