One day Richard decided to see if he could get every pony on the farm haltered and lined up. He stretched a rope from the show trailer with a tractor to make sure it was tight. Then he spent most of the morning finding halters, lead ropes and leading the ponies up. Finally ready, we decided to take a picture as proof. As you can see it was hard to get them all in the picture (before the new panoramic cameras).
For the 2002 Fourth of July Creston Parade Richard decided to take Frolly and her spring colt. Although we only had enough time to practice the colt twice before the parade he quickly accepted the equipment, crowds and even going over man hole covers. After an hour in the line up and an hour long parade route he was still ready to trot with around the trailer.
