(his registered name is "A Bug's Life") is such a special pony.
He's brave and bold when he needs to be like in the show ring but he
likes to hide behind me when on the lead line as if I can save him from
all his fears. Bugsy is still a baby, really, and we are learning so
much together. I'll be able to ride Bugsy for at least four more years then
my baby sister will get him as her first pony.
Bugsy's too funny when he steals any empty bottle he can get his mouth
on so he can chew it. That's because he's got teeth coming right now. He
loves to get treats no matter what they are but his favorite are my
homemade ones. I have my very own special recipe just for him and I cut
them into shapes. I fall off Bugsy once in a while when we are working
on jumping. When I do fall off Bugsy is such a sweetie walking back over
to me and nudging me with his nose. It's like he's saying "what are you
doing down there". Most of all Bugsy is special because we trust each other.
