The latest addition to the ranch is a pony named Cinnamon. Sydney and Jevan got their fair share of riding her today and both of them had a blast! She was a bit temperamental at first, but after we had a little chat, and along with a few carrots from Oma (she arrived yesterday), she was pretty good.

Sydney, after the fear wore off :)

Jevan taking his turn.


How come that song comes to mind "Mama don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys"?
I think the kids will get a lot of use from her and I hope Cinnamon helps them get prepared for the "big" horses someday.

Cinnamon looks to cute! She looks just the right size for the kids.
I am reminded of the pony that my sister and I had when we were kids. He was a Shetland named Lightening. And I think that his name was more wishful thinking than an accurate description. I have no idea how old he was or even what happened to him after he finished his stay with us. But he was gentle and had the most wonderful soft fuzzy ears.

If you do let them grow up to be cowboys, they have a bright future in front of them, teaching those in the former Soviet countries how to do cowboy things - it's a bit industry, apparently. :)

Oh, how wonderful! Cinnamon is the PERFECT name and the perfect size! I will have to have my daughter come take a look - she needs a pony for her little ones! =)

Thanks for sharing the pictures... They are fabulous. Jevan looks a tad nervous but that won't last long. Put your mom to work while she is there... Auntieb

Beautiful horse, I have always liked a house with a darker coat and lighter mane and tail. It is such a striking contrast.

Now those are pictures that a grandmother and mom all like! I love pictures like that.

What a cute pony too!

Your kids are so lucky! :) I had a Shetland pony named Clover for a few years when I was in elementary school. I loved that pony even though it was stubborn and bucked me off a time or two. If we ever live in a place where we would have room for a horse I would love to own one again.
