  1. Well, wasn’t that well done?! You’ve left all of us with tears in our eyes with 33 blinking words, but it shows your talent! 😀

  2. This reminds me of that sad scene in Black Beauty when the monk leads Beauty’s friend the little pony away to live out the rest of his life somewhere else. Now I’m all teary-eyed.
    Thank you for linking up. Voting is now active so be sure to come back!

  3. Wow – I love how you evoked such a universal emotion without actually telling us exactly what was going on, or how she felt. Painting the picture was enough. Great job!

  4. I really wanted to think the father was taking the pony for a walk, but my gut won’t let me believe that. Nicely done.
