THE CUTE SHOW! Featuring Pygmy Ponies

4 The Love Of Animals

I would love a cute little pygmy pony in our yard! These adorably sweet and fuzzy ponies will do just about anything to get food in their mouths. The Cute Show meets Olivia, daughter of Toy House Mousey Prince John of Lancaster pony, and watches her and her friends as they lounge around or partake in exercise routines, in which they trot and jump over tiny pony hurdles (to keep the weight off).

Operation Nix-the-Petting-Zoo, Part Deux

Animal Person

Coincidentally, last night was a board meeting for our homeowner's association, and though I wasn't on the agenda there's always time for homeowner comments about, say, the petting zoo and pony rides that are scheduled for the spring "BBQ" ( here 's part one of this story). I printed pages of information about petting zoos from the Internet, mostly about health risks but also about animal treatment. And there's not much from the health angle for pony rides.

Operation Nix-the-Petting-Zoo

Animal Person

Like a "BBQ, pony rides and a petting zoo!" When I started thinking about trying to get the association to cancel the pony rides and petting zoo (which are often part of one business as a quick Google search of " traveling petting zoo " will demonstrate), my several-year vegan husband said, "What's the use? It's not like these people care about animals. Their kids are probably gonna be petting the animals they're eating and they might not even know it."

I recently got a chance to read a charming new book called The Dog Who Healed a Family: And Other True Animal Stories That Warm the Heart & Touch the Soul. The book features short stories of animals who have touched the lives of people. Anyone who has ever loved a pet will relate to the power that animals can have on a person. But this book doesn’t just feature dogs, there are stories of all kinds of animals.
