Goat Borrower.....Cow Borrower......now add to my list: Pony Borrower!
The pony arrived today! Hurrah! And I just feel as though I ought to point out that Santa took his sweet time about getting it here!
So far as I can figure, his name is: Pony.
He's a wee, thin thing with beautiful, wary eyes.
I think right now he's mostly trying to sort out how he got here and why strange people are being so gentle with him.
He's scruffy, no doubt and needs a good bit of care. And possibly a couple of sandwiches! You can tell by his face that he badly wants some affection but is just too shy at the moment to take it. But, to his credit, he stayed a decent distance from us but didn't bolt to the opposite end of the pasture. He stayed just outside of reach. I take that as a good sign and believe that he'll fall easily into his place in a few days.
He does prance, though! High stepping, head held high, tail hoisted like a pirate flag cracking in the wind!
Such a proud pony! He's got the highest stepping knees I've ever seen! He's going to look grand pulling that wee gypsy wagon!
Darla took to him well. She always does when it comes to other animals....as long as they aren't goats.
Her best buddy right now is Lizzie, the cow. But she went right up to say hi to her new brother and they were nose to nose without a problem.
I hope Pony is happy in his new home. I intend to make it a happy and magical world for him!
Such a pretty pony.
ps. I'll break it to him about the gypsy hats when he gets settled. ;)
(Note to self: Buy more tassles!)
