I had a pretty good weekend! On Saturday we took in the Parkland Arts Tour, visiting many artists and seeing the impressive skills that people in the area possess.
On Sunday we got ponies!!!
We’ve been waiting for ponies for so long around here, and finally two of them came! We may still get a mare and her colt, but she got bred a few weeks ago and her owner wants to see if she’s pregnant or not. I’m guessing that if she is pregnant, she’ll stay where she is and we won’t get her. 😦
I’ll show off the ponies first!
Aren’t they gorgeous??
The lighter one is named Relic, and the darker one was unnamed but so far has been Midnight and Chocolatescotch. I’m not sure what she’ll be called yet. 😉
They’re very friendly. This morning the girl pony came right over to me several times for pets. 🙂
Now onto glass blowing. We stopped Ron Anderson’s Odd Ball shop (which is on his farm). He had a lot of great balls and paperweights for sale, and at reasonable prices too. But I was there mostly for the demo!
It was very interesting to me to see glass manipulated first hand. My ultimate goal is to do lampworking and make my own beads.
