Your Pony Here
Q - Mr. Mallard, who is that person on the upper left hand side of every
page at your web site?
A - That is an Internet police artist's drawing of the typical visitor
at this web site.
Q - Hey, Henry, why don't you have any
colorful graphics like all the other web sites out there?
A - For three reasons. As you know, color screenprint is very expensive
as opposed to the cheaper black and white (brown is also inexpensive).
Also color confuses people. It makes things seem real. (Plato said that
everyday reality is like shadows on the wall of a cave, and everyone
knows the best shadows usually come in black and shades of gray.)
Finally, as you can see from the photos of me at this web site, I'm just
black and white myself.
Q - Mr. Mallard, why do the motels and
bed and breakfasts charge so much less in the winter and spring months?
A - These lower rates may result from the influx of bird watchers. As you
know, they spend little or no time in their rooms since they seldom
leave the Chincoteague Refuge - so the rooms need much less attention,
if any at all.
Your Pony Here
I have a special offer for those of you who plan to register the
Chincoteague pony you purchase at the Chincoteague pony auction, an idea that was inspired by a visit to the National
Chincoteague Pony Association web site run by a lady in Bellingham, Washington.
First, let me point out that the official
Chincoteague Pony Association affiliated with the Chincoteague Fire
Company is located on Chincoteague Island, of all places (Web Site:
although those living in Bellingham, WA, may prefer somebody who lives
just around the corner there.
Anyway, like the lady mentioned above, for those who live on my street
and in other places, too, I've started Henry's Other Pony
Association. Registration is easy. Just note your pony's name on a
one-hundred dollar bill and send it to me (membership - just note your
own name on a twenty), and I'll jot all the names down somewhere for
