Henry

Henry is the obligatory sweet faced Shetland Pony that almost everyone who gets the kids a horse starts out with. Like Merrylegs from Black Beauty, he has patirently (and sometimes not so patiently) given a number of children their first insightful lessons in horsemanship. A seasoned veteran at parades and county fairs and the guest of honor at several parties, there's a nice shot of him in the Tecumseh Frontier Day parade here. At 30 years, he's the Grand Old Man of the farm, spending his days enjoying the breeze and the view and getting carrots and cookies from the grandchildren. Still sweet faced and absolutely adorable.
