To The Beach Part 4

By luck, the first Pony Show of the season at the Chincoteague Pony Centre took place the Tuesday Madison and I were there. 
Surrounding the arena was more Misty memorabilia in the shape of Breyer horses. Misty has been in production consistently since 1972.
The show is a celebration of Chincoteague Ponies and Misty descendants.
 It started out with the playing of the National Anthem and Misty's Morning Glory helping with the carrying of the flag.
And then the show began.
It demonstrated the abilities of the ponies by timed games.
Chincoteague Teaguer isn't a Misty descendant but is a veteran of the swim. 
He's also a trick pony

 with a repertoire of tricks
that include drinking soda.
Misty's September Stardust had a rough start in life. 
Instead of being a riding pony, she's been trained to be a trick pony too.

Other Misty descendants were shown.
Misty III
Misty's Icicle 
Misty's Heart of the Storm
Here's the heart shaped marking that helped her get her name.
After the show we visited some of the turned out ponies.
Misty III
It was my first time watching the show and I enjoyed it. 
Sunset on the island
We woke up the next morning and began our way home. It was a nice beach getaway to one of my favorite places!
