This blog is dedicated to my friend, my mentor, and the best teacher I have ever had. Without him, I would not have embarked on this amazing journey. Split, this blog is for you!
Ponderosa Misty Icon, aka "Split," is a handsome gray Welsh pony who came to me via a phone call "out of the blue" (actually Peterborough, Ontario). Our first few months together were rocky to say the least, which made me question my ability as a horse owner, as a horsewoman, and as a rider. Forty years of horse ownership had not prepared me for this little gray pony!
But we muddled through and because of Split, I have begun a journey that is both spiritual and enlightening. I hope something here resonates with you and that you'll check back now and then.
We leave you with one of our favorite quotes: "The best whisper is a click!"

Poetry On A Saturday

The Irish are known for their literary accomplishments and my friend, Dorothy, is no exception. Shortly after perusing my new blog, she emailed me with a poem that was inspired by that most handsome of fellows, Split the Wonder Pony. It made me laugh and really summed up Splitty's spirit! I am happy to share it with you! With thanks and credit to Dorothy Gaydos of Druid Meadow Morgans ........

And clicketysplit, away he trots...
A maneful of burrs, a noseful of snot!
Cool weather is taunting this pure gaelic soul...
"Come play with me pony, we'll never grow old!"
