fluffy ponies!

Because it's Monday, who needs words when there are fluffy baby pony pictures to look at, right?

Plus bonus horse-sized baby too, out with the yearling shetlands bc poor thing is apparently an orphan. 

Seriously tho, these little babies are so freakin friendly. We literally just pulled up in the trailer (immediately behind the camera) and they all hustled right over to the fence line to say hi.

Which, obviously, nobody turns down an offer like that haha.

Omg their little noses and ears are just ridiculous. I don't think I'll ever get over teeny tiny horses haha.

And you just gotta love friendly babies. I mean, sure, some horses are more naturally reserved or distant. But still. Give me a good sociable pony any day!

Of course they were even more excited to learn that someone (ahem, yours truly) had a pocket full of breath mints.

Which was ridiculous in its own right. Considering a life saver is typically more than a fleeting taste of flavor for our larger equine friends. Like, say, Wick. 

These guys actually had to spend a solid couple of moments chewing each haha. 

All the same tho, they were always ready for more. Pushy little buggers haha. 

Don't get me wrong - there was more to this weekend than just fussing around with yearling shetlands. For instance, we had our weekly lesson at OF (the farm these guys call home).

Plus I made it up for a lesson with Dan on one of his horses. First time I had seen him since... gosh mid-June? It's hard to schedule anything when I don't have something for him to teach me on at my barn, and his barn is so far away. We'll figure it out tho.

There's also one last segment to the rider safety survey. So there will certainly be more to tell soon (once I get around to writing haha). In the meantime, tho. PONIES.

Hope you all had a nice weekend too!

  4. Ohmygod I really do love the fluffy ponies!!! I always joke that when I retire I'm just going to have like a 14.1h appy pony that's just broke to death and I won't do ANYTHING with it except ride around bareback in a halter and give advice from the wall to people who don't want it...

    1. lol we explicitly asked that they did not count the number of ponies in the field after we left until we were sufficiently far enough away to make a clean escape ;)

  13. So adorable. Ponies are best that way: just being cute and fluffy and not being little demons under saddle.
