That there sure be one lonesome rider pardner...

Not really, it's just a pony giving rides in the Parc Montsouris with the low sun setting in the west and mighty pleasant it was too.

You sometimes feel sorry for the ponies though, standing there in the heat waiting to trail yet another kid around a patch of grass but maybe they don't mind too much.

They don't seem too perturbed by the pompous equestrian statues Paris is so full of either. They just go on their weary way, leaving their dejections behind them every now and then in an age old Paris tradition, with ne'er as much as a whinny in objection.

Abjection might be a tempting term to use but they don't seem too miserable and probably lead a considerably more comfortable life than some of their predecessors when thousands of horses hooved the city streets carrying all manner of goods all manner of distances under all manner of not so pleasant conditions. A kid on their backs instead of a couple of huge kegs of wine, say, would have seemed like, well, a walk in the park...

And why not...
