TONY THE PONY Last weekend our friends invited us To their farm, And we were introduced, to their New pony, who had delectable charm. His name was Tony, Such a handsome pony, I noticed him from afar, And on his forehead, he had a star! He had already spotted me, From way beyond the Cedar tree, And stole my heart, Right from the start! He seemed so tame, Wanting to play a game! I was advised not to touch Too much Lest he bite, And give me a fright, But I was sure that this would Be furthest from his mind, For he looked adorable, And so awesomely kind! He slowly nuzzled Into my hand, As his hooves kicked up a Spray of sand. He was such an incredibly Soothing sight, Was sure I would dream of Him tonight! I was further advised not To give him any food, But could see he was eyeing my Apple and in the mood For a tasty munch, I gave it to him, and he happily Finished it was a loud crunch! Sunday arrived and it was Time to leave, Went to say goodbye and he Gently tugged my cardigan sleeve! We looked fondly at One another, As though we had always know Each other. Well Tony I said whilst Stroking his nose, He stood beside me, ever So close, I hear that you are soon To be a dad, You must feel so proud, And glad, I’m sure you and Shady Your young lady, Will adore your baby foal, And he or she will Steal your heart As you did mine, From the start.

This pony stole my heart. He stood next to me for a good hour. I have always loved horses, not that I have ever ridden on one or owned one but Connie mentioned in her comment to me that horses can read our minds, then Tony must have known I immediately loved him. Thanks for the comment Lindsay, Poetry hugs, Jennifer.

I didn't know that Connie, then they must know that I love horses - in England when we went three years ago, I stroked the nose of one of the horses when it was the changing of the guard outside 10 Downing street and signs were up everywhere, don't touch the horses they bite, but I was right in front and the only thing separating us was the rope they put up to keep the tourists at bay. Well this horse turned and looked at me as though he he understood I loved him and was not afraid. That horse made my holiday so much lovelier! thank-you for a lovely comment and your congratulations, Poetry hugs, Jennifer.

Lovely poem Jennifer, I have a friend who is a horse therapist. When I visited her, the horses came towards me, but the pony did not. These were big horses, so at first I was a bit scared, but they were very sweet. Congrats on POTD.
