And you know, Tonka just loves it when people ride him. He may be small, and that makes it even better, his bouncy little trot is bound to make you laugh. Also, he likes to show off, for example; We had brought him to a small herd of minis for the summer, when he got there, he wanted to impress them, and he collected himself perfectly and trotted around showing off. I thought he would make a great dressage horse, if he was just a little bit bigger.
Tonka’s talent (As a mentioned before) is making people laugh, and giggle.
I have seen, and met a lot of horses, a lot. I have seen big ones, small ones, beautiful ones, cute ones, but honestly I think Tonka is cutest. Well, first of all he is short, second of all his big eyes and thick mane and tail. And I’m not just in love with his looks, but his (Don’t tell him I said this) sassy, beauty queen personality.
Let me explain, we have two mares, and when I go out in the morning I say; “Hey beautifuls.”, and Tonka know's that I am directing that comment to the girls. Then he get very offended that I didn't call him beautiful, too. So I go in, duck down pet his face and say “Good morning, beautiful.” to him, saying that I fix his hurt feelings.
Happy Horsing Around
