By now you’ve already read this piece on Celina, Texas, the small town that wanted a Tollway to run through it. The article mentions Lazy N Farms, a mini pony farm that, had the town received its wish, would have had the Tollway run right along its edge. A couple of us were intrigued by these mini ponies so we made the (long) trek out to Celina to see what they’re all about. We learned these ponies were originally used to haul things around in coal mines and that they weigh between 250-300 pounds. We also learned that the American Miniature Horse Association World Show is taking place September 24 through October 2 in Fort Worth. Then we got a little taste of what the show’s like. Check out the video. (And please, please, please forgive us for the fact that there’s a hurricane blowing through the entire time. It was about a billion degrees, and we never even noticed the wind.)
