Our high school mascot is the Blue Ponies. I am not very fond of it but seeing as we just moved here no one seems to care what I think about it anyway. I did learn the reason for this is that the Indians used to call the Cavalry the blue ponies. At least now I know the history of it, it still doesn't mean I like it or come even close to being able to tolerate it. But they are proud of their blue ponies as is evident by the very fact they painted one blue and rode it in the parade. I couldn't believe when I saw it coming down the street, I had to take a picture of it just to prove to everyone that it was really there. Or maybe just to prove it to myself.
