A Trip to the Funny Farm

Hooray for us! Rosey’s blog has exceeded 1,000 hits and really, we’re just getting started! Today’s entry is just a fun one, we didn’t go for a ride today, but I went with Allie and Deidra to the Farm for Recovering Canter Ponies, so that we could visit the goonies and also spend some time talking to a reporter who is interested in writing a story on CANTER.

Because visiting these horses is such a hoot, I decided to basically let them speak for themselves and fill the rest of this entry with pictures of their gorgeous selves.  Enjoy!

It would be easy just to spend all day visiting these guys.  They are just so goofy! And it’s so interesting how they change- sometimes when they arrive, they don’t want to be caught and are rather antisocial (case in point, Wek).  As they start to exhale and relax, they just get happy.  And then when they decide life is pretty good, suddenly they realize people are cool, and worth their time.  And then you finally get to see what their real personality is like.
Tomorrow, the plan is a nice trail ride with Miss Rose. I will attempt the mounted video-taking if anything interesting happens, but I’m not quite as talented with that as some others among us are…  till tomorrow!
