Just A Day In The Neighborhood

How cute is this.....6 little ponies pulling a cart all decked out in their fancy tack. They belong to our neighbor Mr. Piquet who lives across the field.

Usually Mr. Piquet has only 2 horses pulling his cart, but today he had 6 shiny black ponies. He trains them and takes them to parades and other events and we see him driving his little team on our road quite often. I bet today they are training for our local 4th of July parade.

Janelle even got a turn at driving them!

Mr. Piquet hand makes the fancy bridles, bits and such for the horses and he also makes them for the Budweiser Clydesdales. Pretty cool!

Daddy and daughter had a great ride.

Just another day in the neighborhood.

Very cute. There is a guy in the country who drives his lil buggy and a covered wagon EVERYWHERE. Winter and summer. If it is really snowy though...he finally gets out his Hummer! LOL

Oh, how I wish I lived in your neighborhood! It looks like lots of fun. Right now, in my neighborhood we have lots of tractors. Don't get me wrong, I love a good tractor, but a pony cart looks like more fun on a leisurely summer day.
