This pony is extra, double, super, really cute, and I think we can all agree that he should belong to me.
Under normal circumstances, this would not be okay. In this particular instance, however, I'm fine with it. This is because the pony belongs to Jane Schneider, who is one of my all time favorite people.
He is a portrait model of the first pony Jane's daughter, Marianne, ever rode. Here's a picture of that fateful ride. It was taken in 1984.It's also worth noting that although Purdylegs belongs to Jane, he's going to be staying here with me for a little while. Thank you, Jane, for allowing me to pretend he's mine. I promise I'll take good care of him!
