My Little Town…..Pony Penning Part 2

For those of you who stopped by, read and commented on my blog post yesterday, here’s a continuation….the video below is from the 2013 Pony Swim……the man who put this together did an outstanding job….I personally know many of the Cowboys, and they’re amazing people who really love these horses!!! Enjoy!!

After the swim, the ponies are rested and then walked to the carnival grounds where they’re corralled. Thousands of people will be there to view and decide on which pony they want to bid on and hopes of bringing home….

Thursday morning the auction starts at 8 a.m…..I went to one and it was enough for me…..I’m not in the market to buy a pony, and sitting there, watching and listening to the foals cry for their mamas, and the mamas ‘yelling’ for their babies, once was enough for me…..though the looks on the kids faces who bought ponies was priceless…….

  1. I really enjoyed this post. I live in New Jersey and have often thought about visiting your island. You have now made that visit even more appealing. Don’t worry I won’t come in the summer.

Have something to share....I'd love to hear it!!!
