Pay to ride


Some horses in Ocala you have to pay to ride. And then they still don't go anywhere!

It's still a nice pony.
This just might be one of those situations where lowered expectations are called for.

That's the kind I like. The real ones, scare the fool out of me.

If your can't have a real one or this "no-go" pony, try a carousel horse; they're the best!

75cents---what is this world coming to!!!!
My kids all wanted to ride the grocery store pony. I would say you guys have real live ponies at home but they still wanted to so I would let them sit on the horsie and I would wiggle it or they would. I wouldn't pay to ride a fake horse.
Well unless it was a merry-go-round horse. Ya gotta draw the line somewhere. MB

I see, It's now time to replace your gators with plastic ones...

"Plastic - fantastic "??
Well I guess "the real thing" is very different.
But I am sure kids love this too!! :)

I drove my parents nuts for a ride.

I've bet on horses that paid less. Looks like a deal to me.

That is no life for a horse, and explain the desperate look...

Have a nice Sunday!

Oh, the horse of my youth. I used to spend a lot of time on these horses when my mother was shopping in a store.

Hilda said...

I love the rocking horse but your commentary made me laugh out loud.

JM said...

Cool! :-)

That's actually a pretty cool looking horse.

I see that Ocala really is horse country!

Wow! It costs three quarters to ride. I don't think I will confess how much it cost when I was a kid.

That is what I call a grandson magnet.
