Whinny's News and Views - Winter 2005

 

Hi Kids -- Just wanted to let you in on one of my adventures. One night I woke up to hear something softly thumping and bumping on the roof of my barn. It seemed extra cold but I had my winter coat and my blue pony blanket and soon fell asleep. When I woke up in the morning it seemed very bright. One look told me that something very exciting had happened.

I bet you can guess what it was when you look at these pictures of my pasture and my birdhouse. You're right! It had snowed.

Kate and I could hear Gudrun's boots squishing and squeaking on the snow as she walked to the barn. We knew that she would make a wonderful breakfast when she got here so we were very excited.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I tried to look over the stall door to greet her but, being a pony, I'm very short you must remember so I couldn't see much.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, Gudrun arrived and began making our breakfast. Oh!! I just couldn't believe how slow she was..."Can't you make my food a little faster?...What's the holdup?!!"

I could hear her measuring out the yummy hay and my special food with sugar beet pulp. I am not only short, I'm also pretty old for a pony, so I need special food in the winter to keep warm.

Wait!! Did you hear that? Is that the sound of a carrot or two dropping in the bucket? Noooo...its only the clunking and bunking of my water bucket against the side of the barn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally breakfast is ready and Gudrun is opening the door to my stall.

 

 

Hi Kate..are you are b-r-r-r-y like me?

And off to the pasture for breakfast!!

 

Hold on...What's this ... I have to pose for pictures?

 

 

 

 

I wonder what snow tastes like....Oh my, it tickles my whiskers!!

 

O.K., Gudrun, enough is enough. No more pictures.! I want my breakfast..!! No more dilly dallying... no more waiting.

Mmmmmm, carrots!

 

Love,

Whinny-the-Pony

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you would like to send me a note and a few e-mail carrots, I would love it. And even though I can't type very good with my hooves, I will answer you just as soon as I can.
