This Side & the Other Side of the Island of Texel

Here is my mom, still reporting from the island of Texel in Holland. I snuck this picture in of my mom on Big World Assignment! And what is that large animal on the right side of this picture?

It is a very large pony.....two ponies in fact, but one is too fat to even get up for mom! And where are the pony's legs? Even my friend, Simba , has longer legs than this!!

Mom hollered at the pony to come over to the fence. The pony came running......well, not running really since it was quite a large stout pony. Let's say it "walked slowly" to the fence. The pony said he heard that JB's Big World would be doing a report in Texel today!

The pony also said he would LOVE to be friends with me! He said, maybe JB will make me famous and get me out of this tiny pasture in tiny Texel! It is a little lonely here!

The pony closed his eyes tight, concentrated really hard, and tried to teleport over to me immediately!

Mom asked the pony why he was so stout, and he said that he gets lots to eat on this side of the island. He told mom that she had better go feed the smaller ponies on the other side of the island because they had run out of grasses!



Here are the smaller ponies. Mom quickly fed them grass she picked from outside their pasture and they were happy.

My mom said, "My what big teeth you have!" And the ponies said "All the better to eat grasses fed to us by JB's mom!"

I like these ponies from both sides of the island and I am glad they are my friends!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

I liked all of the ponies, the big ones,the small ones and the medium ones. That was wonderful meeting your new friends and maybe one day ponyteleportation will happen! =)

Wow, great photos of the ponies! But, are you sure that tan one is a pony? He sure is big boned! He looks like a ton sack of potatoes! Your Mom must like horses and ponies and cows... she's always on reporting assignment and comes back with photos of them. You are going to make the ponies famous because of your post!

Hana said...

JB, I voted for your scary eyes!!!! I have my paws crossed that you win!

Hi, JB...

Those are very fat ponies! Goodness! Are they a special breed or just over-fed?? The small ones seem very grateful for the grass :-) Lovely saw a lot of neat animals here.

Hi JB! Amazing pictures from Texel. Something Dick (from Eye on Texel) never showed us...) ;))
Thanks for your comment on Blogtrotter, where I’m exploring a new country now. Surprise! ;)
Hope you have a great weekend!

Hugs, Kodak the eskie

Oh my god, even ponies can be obese! It has to walk with me now. I have to go in the next city to open a museum and make about 4 km at feet. So the pony coud maybe have the hope to turn to the normality (as I have)

Hi, JB-
Your mom takes really great photos, and I like your new friends. Just be careful--given their enormous size, they look like they might consider EATING a cat like you.

hi JB, those are interesting ponies. we have never ever seen any animal as fat as those. they look nice and friendly though. it's too bad they couldn't come to visit you.
