That first pony... always a special one to remember.

The author, approx. age 3, on her first pony, Freddy Boy. Freddy was a raw little personality with adults, but gentler with children. Freddy was the same age as his mistress, a mind-boggling six months old, when introduced. They had many happy years together. The picture was taken on Church Street, just on the edge of Stanton, Kentucky, at the home of the then-child's maternal grandparents. The image is imperfect, restored from a photo carried by a proud father of the child for years. Stories within stories, and the company of horses. There is no better way to enjoy life. ~ RLMT
