By the way, let me be very clear to those concerned about the well being of the horses. They are very well taken care of. Your horse should be jealous of these horses. ;-)

Since being out in this hot sunshine all day is pretty much against my new lifestyle, I skipped the pony swim this year. Although it is a lot of fun, I think I will wait until my niece is old enough to enjoy it or I have babies. Instead, I am having a hot date with my 4 year old niece tonight. I am taking her over to the carnival grounds to see the ponies! I am sure I will get talked into doing other things at the carnival as well. Lulu does not have to ask me twice...She is a kiddo who loves animals. I totally predict that she will at least consider becoming a vet many years from now. Mark my words!
I get to enjoy the ponies, my niece, and the local holiday all while being sun safe. Sounds good to me!
Off to spoil the niece!
