I love me a pony face

I was so grateful to Jen over at AKPONYGIRL blog for inviting me to go ride on Sunday, that I braved the most bitter cold I have ever been in just to kiss a pony face.
Yep that says -2 degrees. I have never been so cold in my life.
Not just any pony face but a super cute half draft pony face aptly named " mare" .
She is big boned as you would say, my girth that fits my 16 hand appendix mare was not even remotely going to fit her. I made do but it sure looked funny.
She doesn't have a mean bone in her body, but she did test me for sure. I want to roll, NO we trot, I have an Itch, NO we go forward, I think this Shadow might eat me and I need to roll, NO WE TROT.
Isn't she just too cute?
Don't tell Star she might get all Mad Mare Face on me again.
I am so grateful to Jen, thank you so much! Coffee is on me next time!

I'm so glad Jen got you back on a horse. I think you needed that! Hang in there JP spring will be here in just a few short months.

You're welcome! Mare really needs a firm hand but she is such a sweety that we tend to overlook her quirks.

You really didn't act like you were cold. I was layered up and warm! Just wait, we will get you used to Alaska temps soon. My 15 year old daughter thinks that 32* above zero is warm enough for shorts and a t-shirt.
