    By the way, we talked to the vet, and she literally gushed over this pony. He is very clean, good feet, just a very healthy little guy. But the cool part is, the vet (who had not seen him before) went on and on but what a lovely personality he has, a real pleasure to work with. She says we are going to love him! Heck -- I think we already do!

    He moves like a bigger horse, not the staccato way ponies sometimes trot with.
    You or your trainer will be able to also ride him, he can carry an adult easily.

    Too bad it is not Christmas, but you may still be able to put a red bow around his neck anyway.

    Wonderful, glad for you and your family.

    So is granddaughter being told of Parker's pending arrival?

    or is he to be a special surprise?

    I have not decided, to be honest. She does not always do well with "surprises," and I sometimes think the anticipation is half the fun ... I can say this, she doesn't know yet.

    I am decided that it doesn't really matter in the grander scheme of things -- God willing, they will have many years of great adventures together and there is plenty of time for her to love and be loved with him.

    All of the horses worship her and their ears go flop when she walks in. I am certain Mr. Parker will be no different. And of course, there may be jealousies as Elijah thinks she is HIS little girl!

    Awww, what a lucky kid! I would be tempted to tell her. I'll never forget the anticipation of finding my first pony, and waiting for him to arrive at the barn I boarded at. That was the longest day at school ever!!!!

    I am so happy for you folks! It is heartwarming to read of good things happening to good people and good little ponies.

    The first clue that this was a legit pony is that everything is SPELLED correctly! Congrats on finding your "Dream Horse".

    Default Pony Pick Up Scheduled for Next Week!

    Thanks to everyone for your kind words -- it's so nice to share with folks who "get it." And Pony Grandma, you know you are my hero!

    Parker's pick-up in Michigan is scheduled for next week. It won't be much longer now! This weekend I'll be working on the barn -- finishing the tack room and splitting Cooper's double stall into two so Parker will have his own place. Gosh, I feel like a little kid ... honestly, there is nothing like a horse to keep you young!

    Don't forget to charge the batteries in your camera!

    Take a million pictures.

    Going to keep the Parker name?
    That is a good name for an indian pony, after Quanah Parker, the indian chief.

    Safe journey, Parker. (nice solid name for a nice solid pony.)
