||Twenty years old|
||Petersburg, New York, USA|
is a Shetland pony, and he is twenty years old. He lives in
Petersburg N.Y., that's upstate - not far from Vermont. When you say New
York, people think of the city, but Cinnamon is a country boy!
We were given Cinnamon along with his brother Nutmeg - you can see him
n the back - to hook up to a buggy. They are very lovable and sweet and
Cinnamon will lick your face if you get too close, so visitors need to
be warned - they'd don't expect that from a pony! I think Cinnamon is
very handsome, he looks like a Palomino, but has his white "socks." His
muzzle is very soft to pet, but if he licks you, his tongue is kind of
I go outside every day to comb Cinnamon and Nutmeg and trim their manes
when needed. You can see in this picture he is very furry - this picture
was taken in March, so he still had his heavy winter coat. Now that
summer has come, he is much sleeker - well, his coat is anyway. Shetland
ponies in general aren't exactly built for speed.
The Main Reason we bought them was to hook them up to a buggy, but we
still haven't done that yet. They are pets for now, not work ponies.
Cinnamon is the best pet we have ever had (and Nutmeg, too) and we have
had almost every pet imaginable. My family loves them both and so do I!
