You may be too old to ride one, but you’re never to old to have one over for tea.

I wonder, what is that wooden thing before the pony? Could it be a stuffed pony on rollers?
that is the funniest caption i have seen
*too* old to have one over for tea
So … what does the floor wind up looking when you let horses inside your house?
Notice the graying forehead on the horse. Probably in both of their younger years, that might have been grampa’s favorite horse. I agree w/ Holden Back that this was a visit home for gramps and son in law had to re-unite the two old friends.
I hope to be re-united w/ my old friend one day over that rainbow bridge.
Oh that Grandpa and his Nags!
Oh, sure! They pay attention to the horse but completely ignore the elephant and the 500-pound gorilla!
You never outgrow that “I want a pony for my birthday” stage.
“No grandpa, that’s not a dog….”…
It isn’t son…?…Are ya sure ??…!!!…
They asked gramps what he would pick for his birhday. He thought they said “…fix for your birthday” and he said “Charlie Horse! Charlie Horse!”
Family and friends, make a mental note! I want a pony in my dining room when I’m that age! This is an awesome picture!
No shoes in the house!
I love that!
Best comment ever!
Maybe my family are just odd about horses, but having one that small inside is nothing. My sister actally has had two who have to be resrained from coming inside.
WEIRD I actually KNOW the girl who’s photo/family this is and we both went to Lakeview… rando
Surrounded by the ladies! The old guy is still horsing around.
A therapy pony, perhaps?
The lady with the Lakeview shirt is the only one that looks like this isn’t a good idea for a horse to be inside the house.
Just wait til the pony gets out of that headlock!!!
All his life, he’s been waiting to get that pony for his birthday! Finally happened!!
both gramps and horsey are on short reins. and who is cleaning up in case of an accident – for both?
grandpa is wearing depends diaper. you can’t see it, but woman with white sweatshirt is holding a bucket up that pony’s behind… just in case
Nana`s laughing cos she aint picking it up
I love this pic. For an equestrian, there are special bonds between them and horses. This man obviously has been especially touched by this visit. It looks like it has been a wonderful visit for him.
She kind of looks like Calista Flockhart from Ally McBeal and Brothers and Sisters. The girl on the right that is, not the horse!
Yeah, this one just makes me smile. He looks SO happy! Whatever the reason for the pony to be inside, I’m glad it made the grandpa this excited.
It’s a seeing-eye pony!
There is a guy in our neighborhood who has a little “support pony” who wears little horse tennis shoes so it won’t slide on tile floors. I couldn’t believe it the first time I saw it; I thought it was an especially big Great Dane. He has some sort of neurological disease where he gets weak spells and his legs go weak. When he feels a spell coming on, he uses the pony as a support and leans on it until he can get to a place to sit down.
Does anyone else feel this one from the inside?
The grandfather has been a farmer all his life working with horses, no in an old folks’ home, and his son-in-law has brought the family pony inside during a lunch visit to his old house. He is delighted to touch a horse again. They might have a cat at the home . . .
With that perspective, this picture went from a head-scratcher to a tear-jerker. Seriously, what an awesome moment! Pure joy.
I thought something similar. The older man is just so excited! Maybe it was even a horse he had previously taken care of, but had to give up to his son. Not awkward!
