Good Things: Small Packages

For a teeny tiny, itsy bitsy, widdle biddie horsie ... this one has the spirit of a Triple Crown winner. At least that's the way it seemed to my daughter and me when we recently stopped by San Pascual Stables to watch the riders. (I think the instructor was pleased with what she saw in the corral but I couldn't really hear her over all the "awwwww"s.)

Let me be the first to say, "AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW". Now that's a cutie patootie and the horse is a cute as a button too!

I haven't been riding for years. I'm with V. Cutie pies both.

Hilda said...

Not a pony — her proportions are exactly like that of a racehorse but in miniature! Amazing and awe-inspiring. Awwwww-inspiring too ;)

I think that is just the cutest. Perfectly proportioned in miniature!!

BEAUTIFUL... horse & rider! Totally focused & having a ball! (That's the way I grew up, never without a horse, but in a western saddle & no helmets back then!) Thanks for ANOTHER great pic!

I wonder if EVERY community has as many fascinating aspects as South Pas... and we just don't know it because there is no sleuth shutterbug in residence to inform us.

You're right, Hilda, this miniature horse has the same proportions as a full-size racehorse.

Yesterday miniature golf, today miniature horses... I wonder what's next...

I'm so intrigued by that tiny horse.

I do hope they have some wee little jumps
for the itsy bitsy rider on her itsy bitsy horsey.

And a hard high O Silverette!

Yak, don't go there!

There is a great miniature horse ranch near Solvang and Los Olivos - Quicksilver Ranch:

This horse looks different than the ones that Quicksilver raises.

Great photo, Laurie.
