I was about 12 & woke up one cold winter morning to a noise outside. I looked out the window & seen a pony tangled up in the stock fence. The land owner had dropped him off. I felt Sorry for him & went to help. I almost got to him when my daddy called me by my full name ( we all know that's serious ) and told me to get away from the pony . You don't know what he might do. So I stood & watched my daddy untangle him. The land owner was going to give me the pony for free but daddy insisted on paying for him. The land owner said he'd take 50 cents for him...daddy paid the man & I rode lighting til he knocked me off by running under a low tree branch, which he did every time I rode him. I loved that mean pony because my daddy gave him to me. My daddy was my hero...always will be.
