Daily Photo Tour - Finding the Right Pony

There's nothing that will bring back your childhood more than an old fashioned ride on a carousel! Okay, well, maybe for you it's Sponge Bob, Nancy Drew, or Mouse Trap, but for me it's riding a fake horse around and around listening to a syncopated melody that will inevitably by stuck in my head for the rest of the day. Yes it's true. I am a man who likes his carousel's. There is just something that is so nostalgic that it has the power to transport you to another era. Even the horse's themselves, stuck in an infinite rotation with gnarly expressions and a gallop frozen in time seem to create this fantasy world. One of the most interesting parts is finding that particular horse that suits you. You might adore a finely decorated pony, or you might prefer a more simple horse. Maybe you like the more visually calm looking horse, or maybe you like the ones that appear as if a turbine engine has been placed in front of its snout. Yes, you know what I'm talking about. Whatever it is, you have to find the right pony and stick with it! What is your favorite pony?

If I remember correctly (it's been a long time) I tried to pick the one that was the tallest.

At Disneyland, I try to get one with its tongue hanging out (third from the right in your photo). Love it!
