Fiona Goes to Charm School

This is not a good picture of Smitty's little Haflinger mare, Fiona....but I can't take another one for you right now 'cause she's at a trainers learning to be a driving pony.
Andy, the trainer, says they are driving 6 miles a day. When she comes home at the end of the month, she will be the fittest thing on the farm. She is doing well, but the second day, she reared up in the shafts and went over backwards. Sure am glad that she did it there. Actually it's probably a good thing. The old horsemen always told me that if you have a horse that rears, the best thing is to pull them over.
