Horse sense, of course, of course.

You can lead a gift horse of a different color to change its spots midstream but you can’t make him shut the barn door.

You can hold your horses but you can’t make ’em drink, jurvetson.

  8. My father and I are fond of saying, “You can lead a horse to water….but it’ll take 12 people to drown it.”

    (We’re both fond of horses).

    I feel sorry for the ponies that have to walk around in a circle at the end of a pole. As a child I’m sure I’d have loved to ride one, but as an adult they make me sad the same way the animals caged in a pet store do. I wish I could let them loose, while at the same time realizing they likely would not survive loose. With that said, yes, cute pony — very cute.

  11. Golf clap for Pyrit’s amazingly clever use of every horse cliche known for a thousand mile radius! *polite golf clap* **throws hat in air and cheers insanely**

    I can’t even walk past pet stores for fear I’ll see a puppeh face that speaks to me the way this leetle horsey face does and my life as I know it will be over.

    My soul has been sucked out of me by those pleading eyes. Are you people happy now?!

  14. I didnt know that many metaphors could be mixed at one time!!!

    Mr. Ed is a horse of a different color, from this adorable pony!

  20. My reaction exactly, Michael! Cute pony but sad situation.

  21. Ellen W. says:

    That was pretty impressive, of course, to compete with 260Oakley one has to bring ones A game.

  22. Don’t be too sad, peoples. Just like us humans, ponies need their exercise to be healthy. These little critters look very well cared for.

  23. Shelley says:

    Or as my Aunt would say “Don’t look a Gifted Horse in the mouth” … which was one of her classics.

  24. I want to curl up against her and take a nap on her soft fur. ZZzzzzzzZZ

  25. Hello Pony 🙂

  26. Li’l Sebastian! I knew you were still alive!
