Connemara ponies | Ireland

This postcard shows two Connemara ponies (Irish: Capaillín Chonamara), a pony breed originating in Ireland. They are known for their athleticism, versatility and good disposition. The breed makes excellent show ponies. The largest display of the finest Connemara ponies in the world takes place at the Clifden Show, Connemara, Ireland, on the third Thursday in August every year.

I will enjoy some hint of nostalgia in the autumn. Bert's engine is certainly an attraction & the tender will be an added interest. Hope all is well. Love [...]'
