VCBH: Appreciating What You Have

"Let's take a moment to appreciate the Pros of our current ponies, whether you own them or just ride them in lessons."

I've been AWOL from the Blog Hop for a while, but now I am back in action!  Who wouldn't want to take a moment to appreciate their fuzzy equine partner?

  • Connor has a sense of humor - when I say "Let's try this!" he's game.
  • He's patient for long boring tasks like mane pulling, braiding, clipping, etc.
Those ears are never not forward.
  • He's got my best interests at heart: he's never tossed me, and his bucks are so small they just make me giggle.
  • He's the same no matter how often I ride.
  • He's careful to a fault, and hates hitting fences. To revisit:
    • His expression when he clears a fence:

    • His expression when he hits a rail:

  • He's never seen a trailer he wouldn't load in.

  • He's my size!
  • Dem feet:
Dr. Marks said in college that you'd know a Castleberry pony by their textbook feet!


  1. What's not to love about Connor!? :)

    1. The massive pee spot in his stall every morning? The little guy seriously pees twice as much as the bigger horses.

  2. You almost make me wish I was tiny enough to have a cob. ;-)

    1. Connor's pretty small for a Cob! There's no upper limit on height, many of them are 15hh+. Plus there are WB Cob crosses like this Castleberry pony at the show last weekend.

      What I'm saying is, I'll never stop enabling when it comes to Welsh Cobs. ;-)

    2. There's a link in that's kind of hard to see.

  3. Love the trailer pic! Connor is such a cutie :)

  4. He is adorable. If he goes missing...

    1.'s because you picked him up and we're going on a trail ride together? Haha.
