Pony Prank

  My brother and his family just moved into a spectacular new country home. A horse fence surrounds the field where the former owners kept their herd, but the horses have been replaced by dogs, a cat, and the occasional meandering deer. Jokingly I said to my brother, “If you were a GOOD uncle, you’d get your niece a pony. Just a little one?” Since the horse barn has now been converted into my brother’s workspace (his business is booming) sadly there’s no room for horses. Not even a little one.
