Well, I did get the pony and the total cost with an enclosure and some hay (boy does that pony eat a lot) was 550. This proves I have very little sanity left but Lucia really enjoyed the pony on her visit on Wednesday. She saw it in the late afternoon and didn’t want to ride it right away but she fed it an apple and the next morning she rode it down to the orchard and back. It was fun to see Kelly and Alfredo and I think they were both impressed with how I have things set up. Kellly hadn’t seen the hollow in a long time so I think it was pretty new to her and she had never seen the house. We did see the copperhead up by the cabin—they didn’t want to go in after seeing it sunning itself by the entrance--and there was a bull in the pasture so we couldn’t get very close to see the calves. Kelly, Alfredo and Lucia are my third overnight visitors this year and I must say it is a lot of work to entertain.
