He's a good hearted little soul, Squeegee the pony. He is patient with small fingers poking him, combing his mane and tail. He is quiet with small children climbing on his back. He is appreciative of the occasional carrot or apple slice offered on tiny palms.
So it was nice that today Squeegee was front and centre at the Squeegee Appreciation Day, which occured quite spontaneously. What with Layla, Geza, Michaela, Hanna, Laurel and assorted adults, you could hardly see the pony for the Fan Club!
Layla and Geza had a very busy weekend, not just riding the pony, but riding the dog sleds at the Dwight Winter Carnival, and the sleigh ride behind the big Belgians, riding down hills with Dad and Mom on toboggans, throwing snowballs, gathering eggs from the chickens and playing in the igloo that was built at Christmas!
