Best of 2013 - April Photography - Spotted Pony and Sunny Yellow

For the April pick of best photos of 2013 I chose this friendly spotted pony at a riding stable out in eastern Jefferson County.  I went back later in the year and was pleased to see my friend still in the pasture.
And just for the benefit of all my friends who hate this bitter cold winter weather that we're currently experiencing, how about some sunny yellow?  Hang on!  The forsythia will be blooming before you know it!

Love your spotted pony, it is so pretty. And the forsythia has me longing for spring, it is cold out there. Lovely photos. Your pony photos would be perfect to link up to my Saturday's Critters! Have a happy weekend!

Oh the spotted pony is fabulous - and I can't wait to see the forsythia blooming - even if we are not having disastrous weather - it is just n ice to see the yellow of spring.
