I don't know what a gue is, and I certainly wouldn't watch an ass eat one.  They have a whole channel dedicated to that?

Amazingly enough, I do, from 35ish years ago, along with the Black Stallion series and Alfred Hitchcock's The Three Investigators.

I remember  Misty of Chincoteague.  She was a legless stripper in a wheelchair at a roadside shack in the badlands between Charleston and Saint Albans, West Virginia.

You wouldn't believe where the dollar goes.

/Yes you would.

I would like to go there and carry around a giant beatbox playing Wildfire by Michael Montgomery at that festival...old folksy gals would eat it up.

I loved Misty as a kid. Had a Breyer's model of Misty that I started to wear the finish from, I played with it much. I also remember Sea Star, Orphan of Chincoteague.

Assateague's great. The beaches are a whole lot less crowded than Ocean City, but that's close enough nearby that you can still get your fill of shore-town stupidity if you want.

My nine-year-old daughter went batshiat when she saw the ponies last summer, but as it turns out the highlight of her trip was when she found a nice big dead horseshoe crab.

If Blues Brothers quotes are obscure on Fark, I have sadly misjudged this crowd.

I had a book that was all of those stories. I read it til the spine cracked. Still love those
stories.

They were right up there w/ the James Herriot novels for me.

I like the one where he sticks his hand up a cow.  Brilliant.  Literature at its most literative.

I read the books AND had the Breyer figurine of Misty and her foal. Along with Black Beauty, a unicorn, a dappled gray and a Palomino, stationed on my plastic white corner shelf loaded with other girl kitsch crap.

That was the stage in my life when I was trying to kind of fit in with other girls based on horse-fandom, but it didn't work, they still knew I was a weirdo. By 3rd grade they know. Note to past self: Breyer horses are not effective "beards".

About 10 years ago I joined some folks for a camping trip on Asseateague Island (sp?) and my main memory was that the horses there aggressive, dangerous, and ate everything that wasn't secured overnight.

I still have all my Marguerite Henry books, the Black Stallion books, and the Thoroughbred/Saddle Club ones. Makes a great lending library for my 4-H kids!

I collected Breyers like my brother did baseball cards. There's a ridiculous number of them in my parents' house. Now I look back and kick myself for ever taking them out of the boxes.

I had a lot of other Breyers too - Man o' War, the classic Arabian family, an Appaloosa, a Palomino stallion and foal, and then a whole bunch of the miniatures, including Native Dancer. I also thought once, too bad I didn't keep 'em in the box, but you know... I had fun with them. And eventually, I gave them all away to a friend's little girl who was horse crazy.

It was worth taking them out of the box.

I remember three or four ponies standing in the middle of the road watching us watching them  all the while  looking kinda blank-brained.

I think the mosquitoes in the area have diamond tipped proboscis. farkers were biting me straight through my denim jeans.

My family has been going to Assateague for a week in July every year since before I was born  (and I'm in my 40's). I've watched the ponies morph from wee little beasties to the massive things they are today (in the 70's some wild mustangs were relocated out from out west to the island).  As cute as they are, they are basically 1-ton raccoons when it comes to protecting your food

I loved those books.  I remember writing Marguerite Henry a letter and getting one back from her.  It went next to my collection of Bryer horses which included a Lipizzaner from when I got to see them in a show.  Stupidly, one day in high school, I decided I was too old for my collection and gave them away.  I have mourned that ever since.  What happy memories this article has brought,.
