Up and Down the Pony Trail


The other night at just about sunset the kids invited me to walk the newly mown paths to the pond with them. I couldn't resist the temptation....

Our fearless leader forged the trail, riding her palomino pony, intrepid and fierce in the vanguard. 


The pony is a runaway.....giddy up giddy up giddy up go.....and must be called back quite often. One of the farm dogs went along for the fun and the possibility of woodchucks and was actually a good deal more biddable than that little horse.

After that walk I was going to beg off and go birding with the boss. However, the little boss was quite upset and so we ventured on up to the Thirty-Acre Lot too, and had a look around. 

Once again that wild little pony was in the lead all the way up that great big hill and all the way back down again.

Even at the bottom that golden bronco just would not be broken....however, his tough little owner kept him in line as she explored the trail for us all over the wilds of the hay fields...

A really fun age with a big imagination, I always love to see her hair fly free in the wind. She is living a life most kids never know insisted.

Mom, isn't she something! Love you!

Jan, she likes pink lol

Ellie, she is such a story teller. I love it. She will play near us with her little horses and people and the stories just flow on and on. So much fun to listen to.

She is so blessed to have such a wonderful family to grow up in. I am saddened to think of all the kids who sit and watch tv or play video games all day.

Jonna, we are lucky to have her as well. Her perspective on life is a delight. She does watch some things on her Kindle....which used to be her mama's Kindle until she appropriated it...and then acts out the stories with her toys.

Linda, we are and I hope that she is. Thanks
