String of Ponies

Uploaded - 2\7\09-6We needed to get out of the house today to enjoy what turned into a really sunny day, so we opted for short walk along the public footpaths that run right near our house. In a field not to far from our place was a string of Shetland ponies. They were incredibly friendly and came over to great us. It also helped we were offering some of the nice long grasses from the neighboring field, as they had mowed down the grasses in their own field down to nubs. They really just wanted to go, “nom nom nom,” on our scarves or the Japanese cartoon charm on my cell phone (which explains the quality of the photo since we didn’t bring our camera along).
