Sorry about the horrible quality! I am pretty sure this was a pony. I was maybe 9 or 10 yrs old? On this day, we were invited to go over to the house of people we knew from church. They invited a bunch of people over, and us kids got to take a ride on the pony. I didn't grow up riding horses so I am pretty sure I was a little nervous even though it was not a big horse. Someone was in front of the pony, walking slowly and guiding it with reigns.
We attempted pets at different times in my childhood. Me and my sister were always scared of hyper dogs. My dad tried a couple times to bring a dog home but we didn't like it and they'd have to give the dogs to a new home. I remember me and my sis running and jumping onto the couch crying. It was for no reason! But to us it was scary haha. I am allergic to cats(so is my mom) so I never was around them too much unless we were at someone else's house. Then I'd get wheezy, sneezy, and itchy eyes.
We had a cute floppy eared bunny at one time, but it wouldn't really let us pet him! He lived in our back porch and hopped around a lot. Eventually he ate a hole in the screen and would leave during the day and return at night! Then one day, Thumper(how original right? hehehe) didn't return. I wasn't that young by the time that happened. We just always wondered what happened to the poor thing.
We did have hamsters at one time too. We had fish once in awhile too. My dad had birds sometimes. A lovebird once, who flew away when the door opened once, accidentally. :( A cockatiel. Some finches. I think my dad is the only one out of me, my mom, and sis who liked having a pet. I like animals, but I guess I just don't feel like being in charge of one. We have thought of getting a dog one day for Kavi. I don't want to until he is a few years older, IF we do. :P
