NOW IT'S YOUR TURN:
* Have you ever attended the annual Pony Penning Day? When? Is this an event that might be on your "bucket list" of things to do?
* What other event do you know where horses are the highlight and feature attraction? When and where does it take place? Does it draw large crowds?
* Have you ever been around real wild horses or ponies? Where did you see them? How close did you get?
* Do you have a lighthouse near you, or is there one you've visited that has become your favorite? Where is it? What makes it unique?
