Who, as a child, didn’t dream of having a pony??
I know I did and probably at one time or another, begged my parents to get me one. A smart, gentle horse that would live in my room (shared with my sister) and graze in the backyard.
Thankfully, my parents knew better and with five children, plus a dog and a cat, they clearly had their hands quite full!
Still, all I could think about is what a hit I would be when we’d play cowboys and indians! Riding in on my trusted steed, good would always conquer evil and the day would ultimately end with us riding ‘happily ever after’ into the sunset.
Aaaaah, such is a child’s view of the world. 🙂
I doubt kids play cowboys and indians anymore (not exactly politically correct now, is it?) and even if they wanted to, I’m guessing it would most likely be a video game version with all-too-realistic graphics. Yuck.
Sigh, not me. I’ll take the bouncy horse every time. 🙂
