I decided to do a little throwback for this Tuesday. It is not that I’m being lazy. I mean, maybe a little. Really, though, I just wanted to revisit some other pictures.
I posted this one several months ago. My and the zone’s little stalker. Followed us for quite a bit until the pony patrol ran him off. Then he just followed us from other side of the road for a bit. Well, actually, he couldn’t make up his mind. He’d look at us, run away, come back. He carried on for a good few minutes. Then all the other tourist saw him and the other beauties that had gathered. They all eventually ran off. Of course pony patrol was making sure of that as well.
I get it. People are not always the brightest creatures. Signs everywhere say, “Stay at least 10 feet (Or so) away from the horses” and there is always that one idiot that test the boundaries. I know what you are thinking and no…it’s not me. Okay, well…maybe, but never closer than five and never really on purpose. I, apparently, have a pony whisperer persona about me. Of course, it could also be the ones that have found the rule breakers that feed them and so they want to see if I am one. I like to pretend it is the other.
I remember last year during my first trip. The beast was in the backseat and I was outside the car taking pictures of four. The male look at me and just walked right over to me. I know enough about horses not to startle them by making any ridiculous movements and I knew how that fine was so I didn’t reach out to pet him either. We just kind of stared at each other for a minute and I told him that as much as I wanted to that I couldn’t pet him. He eventually walked away. I like the memories like that. Kind of like Ninka and the way she just stares at me while I take her picture. Makes my heart happy.
Well, I’ve rambled on enough for now and I’ve got somewhere I have to be. Thank you for stopping by. Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
