Whinny's News and Views - Winter Adventure

Bird House Hi Kids -- Just wanted to let you in on one of my adventures. One night I woke up to hear something softly thumping and bumping on the roof of my barn. It seemed extra cold but I had my winter coat and my blue pony blanket and soon fell asleep. When I woke up in the morning it seemed very bright. One look told me that something very exciting had happened. Back Pasture

I bet you can guess what it was when you look at these pictures of my pasture and my birdhouse. You're right! It had snowed.

Gudrun Walking to Barn

Kate and I could hear Gudrun's boots squishing and squeaking on the snow as she walked to the barn. We knew that she would make a wonderful breakfast when she got here so we were very excited.

Whinny Peeking out of the stall

I tried to look over the stall door to greet her but, being a pony, I'm very short you must remember so I couldn't see much.

Finally, Gudrun arrived and began making our breakfast. Oh!! I just couldn't believe how slow she was..."Can't you make my food a little faster?...What's the holdup?!!"

I could hear her measuring out the yummy hay and my special food with sugar beet pulp. I am not only short, I'm also pretty old for a pony, so I need special food in the winter to keep warm.

Wait!! Did you hear that? Is that the sound of a carrot or two dropping in the bucket? Noooo...its only the clunking and bunking of my water bucket against the side of the barn.
