A pig named Horse and a horse named Buster
If you read my Pineapple Hatch Chile Slow Cooker Pulled Pork post (Whoa! Say that ten times fast. Haha!), then you know about my pig named “Horse” that we used to put a saddle on and try to ride.
Today I’m going to tell you about my horse name “Buster”. That saddle we used for Horse actually belonged to Buster.
Buster was a shetland pony. Which means he was a miniature horse that would never grow tall like the other horses. I think Buster may have been bitter over that fact because he was a jerk of a horse.
Can you guess how we came up with the name Buster?
I bet you can’t guess how we came up with the name Buster!
The answer: I have no idea. Hahaha! I seriously don’t remember. However I am guessing it was because he was the meanest horse ever!
Buster used to run us into trees when we were riding him or rub right up against the fence so it would scratch our legs. If Buster started running and felt you relax then he would abruptly stop so you would go flying from his back.
I seriously hated Buster, and that’s saying something because I think I have only hated 3 or 4 beings in my whole entire life: One being Buster. The second being this awful mule named Peach that made me look like a rodeo rider on a buckin’ bronco once (and scared the heebee jeebies out of me). Another being this evil rooster we had that I will be sure to tell you about some time. And then the last… Well, I better keep that one to myself.
Well, as much as I strongly disliked Buster the horse, I also had this secret love of him, because without him I would never have felt like a princess.
Buster’s redeeming quality:
You see, my dad had this old fashioned carriage buggy. It was small though, so Buster was the only horse on our whole farm that could pull the buggy. I absolutely LOVED riding in that buggy!
Every single time we went on a buggy ride; I would “accidentally” lose a shoe on my way back inside the house after. Or I would go “accidentally” prick my finger on my mom’s sewing machine and then faint into my bed with my lips puckered.
(You guys! It’s kind of embarrassing that I am telling you all this! I was obviously a little over-obsessed with being a princess…)
Ugly Pictures- Redeeming Quality Taste!
Reader I am guessign you were highly entertained by my wonderful stories of Buster the miniature horse, but you are probably also wondering why in the heck in the world did I even tell you that story…
Well mostly because it’s what was on my mind. However, I also told you about Buster because he was ugly (in spirit), but had a redeeming quality.
Y’all- these pictures just don’t do these incredible Pina Colada Pork enchiladas justice!!! These are the best pork enchiladas ever but I could not figure out how to photograph them.
Don’t pass Pina Colada Pork Enchiladas by because of my ugly pictures; Because you will seriously regret it for life. The glorious taste of these amazing pork enchiladas redeems all their ugliness!!!
