    Default Attack of the Shetland Ponies!

    Today's lesson: don't leave your tent open to roaming Shetland ponies.

    Well, you can always count on pests showing up at a picnic.

    What's with British women and their ponies, they always talk to them like silly children.

    Her face when she asks "Is it your tent?" and the woman answers "Yes" is priceless.

    Do ponies roam wild in the parks of England? Cool! Sure beats a raccoon or squirrel marauding through the camp

    I know, I was wishing the video went just a bit longer to hear what they said next.

    Ok, how mad can you get at ponies that are that cute?

    I'd like to read the press reports about the dangerous pack of wild Shetland ponies!

    yeah, do ponies roam wild in English parks? They looked a bit small for Shetlands.

    Yes, sometimes they do. And on "the square" in some of the small Medieval towns. The center of town used to be used for common grazing for the townsfolk's cattle, sheep, goats, etc...and some areas still graze animals on a common plot (mostly for tourists at this point!).

    When we lived in Cambridge, England in the sixties, I remember the wild ponies ripping the pocket off my raincoat in search of the mint gum I had in there! I was only 6; I had pony nightmares for weeks.

    Now, where can I get me some some of them fancy camping ponies?

    Camping Ponies would never fly here in America. We are far too sue happy to tolerate "wild horses" romping freely about our camp grounds or parks. Sad, really. Our children often behave in just that manner, however, so perhaps we could have packs of feral, adorable children wandering about?

    I know I've been mobbed by feral donkeys (burros?) out west in a national park. They're about as "wild" as the goats at my farm, though, and just as obnoxious!
