A Big Day - Part Two!

After Jill's run we made our way to Cameron Oaks Farm, the farm where Jill takes riding lessons. As you probably know, we have been in the market for a pony for several months now. Jill has "lost" a couple of ponies to other buyers and had one that she loved but that had a vice that she couldn't tolerate, so this experience has been heartbreaking at times. Well, when we got to the farm, our trainer, Deana Hunter met us at the car to say that someone had bought Sporty, the most recent pony we had been trying out. She said that the little girl was coming to get her and asked Jill if she would like to go see him before he left. Jill, stone-faced agreed, and I am sure was thinking, "Here we go again." We got into the barn and Sporty was in his stall with a big red bow on his saddle - or maybe I should say, Jill's saddle. She realized immediately that it was her saddle and was confused. It took a minute for her to figure out that she was the little girl who would be getting Sporty - That he was finally hers!!! Once she figured this out, she was ELATED! Enjoy her story in pictures...

Heading into the pony barn to say goodbye to Sporty - or so she thinks...

"Hey, that's my saddle."

I LOVE this pony!

And now, He is ALL mine!!!

35 degrees with a 20 mph wind - it was frreeeezzzing, but she was the happiest girl on the planet!!! Welcome to the family, Sporty! You will be well LOVED!
