I was very honoured that I brought home a sixth place but I think secretly FH was a little sad. She thinks I am the most handsome pony in the whole world (she's right of course ;-) and I think she thought everyone else should see that too.... but then human beings are weird and judge on odd attributes. So I nudged FH and reminded her that I won the Roller Polar medal for most accomplished, all round superstar. When you judge by different standards it all becomes clear!
But anyway to us equines those ribbons mean nothing. I need no rosettes to make me happy, I need no one but my friends to appreciate me. I am at ease in my furry skin.
This weekend I shall be demonstrating how 'at ease' I am by sleeping lots, eating lots and generally relaxing, sounds like a lovely way to spend the weekend, hope you have a nice one too.
In honour of my big day out I have not one but three quotes!
This one is about FH in the picture above....
When I walk with you I feel as if I have a flower in my buttonhole.
William Makepeace Thackeray
This is my quote :-)
Try to be like the turtle, at ease in your own shell.
And when we're striving for success, we should always remember that failure can be good too...
Success is not a good teacher, failure makes you humble.
