In Preparation – Pony Penning 2013

Ammo the Dachshund Helps Prepare for Pony Penning

Every year around June mom and I start training the ponies for a very special trip. A trip to Chincoteague Island in Virginia at the end of July to watch their wild relatives swim from Assateague to Chincoteague during the annual Chincoteague Pony Swim and Auction.

As official pony trainer it’s my duty to help the ponies prepare by learning new tricks so they are ready to perform for their week long stay down there at the Chincoteague Pony Centre.

This year my pal Boomerang will be making his first trip to Virginia to perform, so I had a little chat with him about how he’s supposed to behave properly and not embarrass me.

Boomerang sulked for the rest of the day, what a baby!

Another part of Boomer’s preparation is reading the famous book by Marguerite Henry, Misty of Chincoteague. Things were going well until Boomer confessed that he doesn’t know how to read!

    Boomerang is a very pretty Pony, since this is his first time, he won’t know the ropes of it yet, he has to learn. But I am sure he won’t embarrass you!!! I like the picture where you have the TALK with him, he is really all ears and is listening to you, until he thought about that you really thought that he would embarrass you!!!! You are so lucky that you get to see the ponies swim. But I did get to see the horses one time a while back when we visited the son in the Navy and we went there. I loved this Post, as usual, and tell Mom she is a very pretty lady too!!!!
