Makenzie and her "Pody"

Sara wanted to get a pony for Makenzie. She found a mini in Iowa, just across the border. So on Wed, I went and picked up this little guy, a very fat, black, 30" mini. He is very nice.

I brought the mini to Makenzie yesterday! Makenzie tries to say Pony, and calls him "Pody".

She seems to be saying, "What is this, Grandma?"

Sara, Makenie and her pony.

Look how little they both are.

Shaggy looks like a giant compared to the mini!

Shaggy and mini are best buds already!

Sara wants to put him on a weight lose plan! No wonder!

LOL! He's fat! A little girl needs to be trotting him around, but probably next year!

Yesterday she kept going up to the window saying, "Momma, pody outside" and pointing at him saying "It's the pody" Hopefully it will be nice and dry this weekend she can actually ride the little guy!

I'm still laughing as I look at that last pic!

Poor kid! My friend Sarah says he looks like a hippo in that picture and I can't get that image out of my head when I look at it! We went out at chore time to visit Pody because it had been raining all afternoon. And even though he had hay, he came over and we scratched on him for a little while. Hopefully by Thursday it has dried up and he can get a bath so Kenzie can ride him!
