With the ATV chaos, I forgot to write about the game my daughter and I had going yesterday while we were tacking up and then riding Cody and Keil Bay.
We have a history of this kind of game. One version - giving our animal family members and ourselves Ben and Jerry ice cream flavors. So the pony might be, for example, dark chocolate swirl with a Thelwell core.
Yesterday my daughter started coming up with what I call "Quarter Horse names." They can get pretty silly.
She decided Rafer Johnson would be "Dun Got A Dollar."
I countered with the pony. "Dun With Work."
She came back with Cody. "Dun Not A Dunce."
So she changed it to "Dun Lost My Money."
I decided Keil might be "Dun By the Bay."
Salina: "Dun By Midnight."
Redford: "Dun Won The Lottery."
Somehow we got off on a Charlotte's Web tangent.
What would Charlotte write about each of our herd members?
About the pony: "some pig!"
Poor Apache Moon. He puts up with a lot.
