Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at
Unlike Dragons ponies do not eat people
So what do you know about ponies?

Ponies are small horses.
Ponies have thicker manes and tails than horses.
They also have proportionally shorter legs, thicker necks and shorter heads.
Well trained ponies are good for children while they are learning to ride.
As well as for riding, ponies are used in driving and working roles.
Pound for pound, ponies are stronger than horses.
Ponies are easy to look after, requiring half the food that a horse would if it was the same weight.

You can meet a pony up close and personal at the launch of the children's book, A Pony Named Taffy, written by Meryn Cooper and illustrated by Shanice Casey. Yes, Taffy will be making an appearance on the day, though I'm not sure he will be up for a book signing.

Gates open at the Pullenvale Hall, 302 Grandview Road, Pullenvale at 10 am, on Sunday, 9th of June, with a Book Reading at 10:30am.

This will be a great family day out and children will have great fun. There will be Face painting, Arts and Craft stalls, and prizes for the best dress up outfit.

Best of all Taffy will have some of his pony friends around for the kiddies to ride. Rides will cost $5 or will be free with the purchase of the book, A Pony Named Taffy.

Both the author and illustrator will be available to say hello on the day, and 50% of the profit from sales of the book will go to Variety Children's Charity.

So BYO picnic and hobby horse and make a morning of it.

Did you know that the average pony will drink between twenty and thirty gallons of water every day and the adage 'you can take a horse to water but not make him drink' is true. Ponies, like horses, will not drink if they don't have a sense of thirst.

I'm looking forward to meeting Taffy. Aren't you?
