Horse in the House


This is the kind of stuff that happens around the Sportsman's lodge on a fairly regular basis. Here we have one of my daughter's friends with a miniature pony in our mud-room.
The horse that my daughter takes care of has been very lonely of late. So, the owner purchased a miniature pony to hang out at the barn and provide companionship. The pony, "Tucker" is a sweet little guy...and smaller than my hunting dog. The girls walked Tucker up from the barn and brought him into the house. So, when I arrived home from the office my kids announced: "Horse in the House!"
Last night was a great crab feast at Sambo's in Liepsic, Delaware and tomorrow is Race Day...Indy 500. Tomorrow night and Monday night we will watch the adult hunter-jumper class events from our box at Devon and in between we'll be following the NCAA Lacrosse games on T.V.

And this is exactly why we miss our children so much when they sprout wings and fly . . . XOXO

Never mind the dog-the horse ate my organic chemistry homework. This made me laugh-so very hard.

Saw it and loved it. Bought a ticket after I read this online (East 2/ Sec EE-good seating). Took the train from City Center to Devon (first mainline experience)and made it in enough time to see the Jumpers and one of them had a really close call when the horse stopped right before jumping. Thank you for the superb idea.
