We now have ponies residing in the paddock next door. I’m surprised at how many visitors they have from the locals. Not being a country person, I would have thought they weren’t a novelty but I guess most people don’t own horses and everyone loves ponies.
Anyway, it means a stream of visitors come to pat and feed them and they are most obliging ponies. Roxy and Tango, being city dogs, are still excited by other dogs, let alone ponies. They are fascinated by them. As expected, Roxy barks, but Tango goes right up to them for a chat, which they seem comfortable with.
Hopefully they stay as it’s lovely to go outside to scratch their noses and give them the odd carrot.
