Joy Joy the Mini Pony

Over the vacation we were able to spend some time at my friend's ranch. The best part? Joy Joy the mini pony! Ryann was in heaven. Cara, not so much. Since Cara is so loud it really spooked the pony and Joy would run and hide whenever Cara was around.
Seriously. Not joking at all.
You really should believe me when I say Cara is loud.
My friend Amanda said she had NEVER seen Joy run.
After hiding from Cara, Joy was a little cautious. It took quite a lot of carrots to get her out of her stall and into the open where the kids could brush and pet her.
I wasn't able to get the picture when Ryann was hugging Joy, but believe me when I say it was pretty darn cute.
A huge thanks to Amanda and Casey for letting us see, pet, feed, and play with Joy!
I have a feeling it will be a scheduled trip every time we go visit Napa.
Do I look happy? I was sure trying to look happy. Cara on the other hand, could care less if she looked happy. Because she wasn't. This picture is about 2 minutes before Cara stepped into a HUGE mud puddle that went almost up to her knees. The smile on my face was totally gone then.
It wasn't funny then, but now it is funny.

Love Ryann's pep talk this morning. I only wish she did that to grandma when she "found" her

These pics are so cute. My oldest loves ponies too, but my second is also more slow to warm up. Sorry about the mud.
