Posing on a Pony

Here is a page of people just posing on a pony.
They are not traveling.
They are not working.
They are just sitting on a horse to get their picture taken.

THE KIDS Lesson one. It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.

"What are they doing?"


  1. I apparently never lived in one of those neighborhoods where a pony came for a visit. I feel deprived.

  2. A friend of mine whose father was in the photography business some decades back, tells me that it was common practice to lead a fully saddled pony around neighborhoods. They would grab a kid a plunk him on the saddle and offer to take a picture. What parent could resist buying a photo of their kid on a horse? The practice was actually called “kidnapping.”

    Can you imagine anyone doing anything like that today?

  3. These days some parent would be out in the street yelling "If you don't clean up this horse s*** I'm suing!"

    Somewhere along the line the majority of people lost common sense and now we all live in fear of each other.

    Bring on the ponies. I have a pony living behind me. Perhaps I need to take him around the neighborhood and pick-up some extra cash.

  4. Good luck. These days you will need an attorney present, a ton of liability insurance, a city permit, a state license and the EMS on speed dial. And when the SPCA hears of it you’re finished anyway. Today it’s COMMON SENSE for fun and profit.

    I have an empty field behind me also. It’s leased out for grazing. We get mostly cattle but we have seen lots of ponies and once a small burro. Not a single emu yet.
