to ren33: The fellow in the hat is Oliver, registered name Oliver's Whisper, a Welsh pony. He'll be 5 in May and my daughter had a hand in training him too. He's farther along in his training and is a lesson pony at the barn I work at. As you can see, he's very laid back. We had all sorts of headgear on him that day and that one is my favorite. Gus is a POA, Pony of the Americas, which is an appalossa breed. Gus is quite lively and very friendly unless you are a veterinarian!
For below average grades in high school (many years ago!), I do quite well on Fun Trivia!
