Headed to Ponyland
« on: July 30, 2004, 08:00:53 am »
Heading down to visit a friend and lay on the beach for the weekend, probably won't get to check in for a few days. This weekend is the pony round up and the swimming of the ponies. I don't mess with the crowds (I hang out with the locals down island) but I'll try to get some pics of the ponies for the horse lovers!
   I'll post 'em as soon as I get internet access, tho it will more than likely be monday.

That is onething I miss about NC.  I used to be just a short drive south of there.

Have a good time!

Have a good trip, Sporty. Look forward to seeing the pics when you get back.

You know, the first time I ever heard of the pony round-up and the swimming of the horses between these islands was when I read a book back in Junior High called Misty's Foal (sp?). I can't remember why I had to read it. It was just part of some literary class. I wonder if this book still exists. *contemplates*

Safe journey. Speaking of ponies, I just saw quite a few yesterday at the local community fair. Lots and lots of livestock too.

Sno-Pak, are you thinking of "Misty of Chincoteague"? Every tourist trap or store on the island sells it and it's avilable at amazon and other books sellers online. It was written back in '47 and is a great kids book, or so I've been told- I've honestly never read it  '<img'>

  Bad news on the pics, the ponies were still up around the pens at Toms Cove and hadn't wandered back into the main parkland yet. The only ones that were out to be seen belong to a local hotel, so I didn't get any photos  '<img'>   Well, at least not of the ponies, just of my buddies surfing. And this of the sun rising over Assateague at 5:30 sunday morning

Misty is an excellent book as are all Margaret Henrys tales of her and her descendants.

Savaaha:  I'm pretty sure the exact title of the book I read long ago was called Misty's Foal. I remember part of the story being about a family that was trying to get off the island during a hurricane and I think the horse they had was pregnant at the time.

Your were right about the title Sno-Pak! That book is harder to find in print than the original, but I found a few listings for used copies. Like I said, I've never read the books, but every place on the island sells the original. Funny thing, none of the islanders that I know have ever read them either, but they all sell it  '<img'>
