One fine morning in her salad days, when Mimosa the Pony was young and her world seemed so, the snow-white filly was lounging around a field in Montgomery County. Suddenly, while Mimosa and some friends were snacking on lush July grass, jets from the Blue Angels flight team flew above in showy fashion, heading for the Willow Grove Naval Air Station. Mimosa's friends were startled. One of them inadvertantly kicked Mimosa squarely and forcefully in the head. Mimosa - named for the delicate shrub, not the delicate cocktail - was rushed to the University of Pennsylvania's veterinary school.

Blue Bell veterinarian Dale Schilling received the bad news on Tuesday. Last weekend he went to a farm in Worcester Township, just north of Whitpain Township, to treat a pony with a high fever that was not eating well. The next day - Sunday - the pony's condition worsened when it showed some of the neurological symptoms of rabies, but still there were other things that could have been ailing it. Because he had been exposed to the pony's saliva, Schilling would have to take a series of rabies shots if it turned out the three-year-old filly had rabies.

The children of Perkasie Elementary School yesterday reached out and touched a legend. And rubbed her nose. And fed her apples, carrots and, her favorite, Life Savers. More than 600 students at the Bucks County school took turns stroking the velvety nose of a pony with a long, flowing red and white mane and white tail reaching almost to the ground. Not just any pony, but the granddaughter of a famous pony, Misty of Chincoteague Island. Misty was the star of a children's book of the same name that has enchanted generations of youngsters.

At the Devon Horse Show, a showplace for bluebloods and bloodlines, the spotlight shines mainly on hunters, hackneys and other well-bred horseflesh. But this year, visitors can meet a new breed of steed - the Teenage Mutant Ninja pony. The only reported sightings to date are at the Horse-n-Around booth, where the equine ninjas cavort across T-shirts available in a riot of brilliant hues. From kiddie sizes to one-size-fits-all for adults, the shirts come in shell-shocked pink, turquoise, chartreuse, lime yellow and fluorescent orange.

The Stone Pony rides no more. Just after 2 a.m. yesterday, the Asbury institution that was the last link to this faded resort town's musical glory days closed its doors for good after three final, sweaty nights of rocking. Owner Steve Nasar, who bought the 24-year-old nightspot in 1992, plans to reopen the place as a dance club on Friday. "The Pony's Last Ride" drew sell-out crowds Friday, Saturday and Sunday to hear a parade of Jersey rockers including Southside Johnny and members of the Smithereens.

The angriest man in Hollywood has to be the manager of Angus T. Jones, the junior charter cast member of Two and a Half Men , who publicly trashed the sitcom this week. Imagine you have a pony that gets paid a mind-boggling amount of money for making a weekly appearance at a successful, long-running circus. You pinch yourself daily over this incredible, crazily lucrative stroke of fortune. Because you're pretty sure that if the circus decided it could do without your pony, you'd never find another paying gig for him, even giving kids rides at birthday parties.

Shari Bernstiel always wanted a horse. Even when she began losing her sight in elementary school, she begged her mother for a pony every year for her birthday. "She'd say, 'Where would we keep it?' " said Bernstiel - a good question, considering that the family lived in a townhouse in North Wales. "I'd say, 'I'll keep it in my bedroom.' " In December, Bernstiel, who is legally blind, got her wish, though it's not exactly the horse of her dreams. Tonto is a 27-inch miniature horse Bernstiel uses as a guide animal, one of the first of its kind in the nation.

Recently a woman I know named Michelle came into the newspaper office with a big ugly wound on her upper arm. Realizing that she might be self-conscious about it, I said: "Michelle, what's that big ugly wound on your upper arm?" Sensitivity is the cornerstone of journalism. It turned out that Michelle had been bitten by a horse. It was her own horse, and it bit her while she was trying to feed it. This is a typical horse maneuver. Horses are the opposite of dogs, gratitude-wise.

Oh, dem golden . . . horseshoes? The Devon Horse Show may be the Mummers Parade of horse people, but fancy footwear? For the horse? "Gold shoes," said Doug King, owner of Royal Crown Stables in Malvern. "She's got gold shoes with gems. " "She" is Crum Creek, his daughter's mount for the show, which will open Thursday. Gillian King, 14, is the returning reserve champion in the pony jumper category. "She knows that she is special," Gillian said of the paint pony, named after a local tributary of the Delaware River.

Fallout from the sudden, unhappy departure of two senior newsmen continues at WHYY: A consortium of Pittsburgh foundations has scotched a discussion that could have provided up to $1.5 million in new funding to the station, money intended to create a west Pennsylvania version of the public broadcaster's land- and planning-news arm, PlanPhilly. And the lead donor wants the station to give back about $30,000, the unspent portion of an initial $50,000 grant to sketch out a proposed PlanBurgh.

Pennsylvania's candidates for governor raised almost $18 million over the summer from well-heeled donors and special interest groups, according to campaign finance reports filed Tuesday with the state. Gov. Corbett's biggest donor, the Washington-based Republican Governors Association, gave him $4 million in the three months that ended Sept. 15 in monthly installments, the reports showed. Democratic challenger Tom Wolf, a York businessman, received about $2.9 million from labor unions in the three-month period, including $500,000 from AFSCME, which represents public employees, and $100,000 from the Pennsylvania State Education Association, the teachers' union.

Are you ready for some football? In the fall, always, but this weekend even more so after seeing Half Straddle's In the Pony Palace/Football , a fast, funny romp and stomp all over the gridiron on stage this final week of the 2014 Fringe Festival. Half Straddle parodies the game, sports movies made for boys (grown or otherwise), and the attitudes of players at all levels - current, retired, or still scoring touchdowns in their own minds. Statistics become "likes and dislikes," the coach yells "Don't leave anything on the field!"

As I write this, I'm not sure whether it's going to have a happy ending or not. Which makes it just like life. Because last week, a little pony that I happen to love, named Buddy, took very ill with colic. Basically, colic means a bad stomachache, but if it's bad enough, like an impacted colon, it can kill him. You didn't know I was going to say impacted colon over your Sunday breakfast, did you? If you can't identify with having a sick pony, I'm guessing you can identify with the point of this little story, which is that it's hard to give up on something you love.

THE FUNNY thing about some story lines is that once they get started, they never change - even if there is evidence to the contrary. From the day he was hired to Sunday's pregame and in-game broadcast of the Eagles' 34-20 Snow Bowl win over Detroit, pundits and fans have told us what Chip Kelly wants to do with the Eagles' offense. Despite Kelly saying the read option is a play, not an offensive philosophy, they keep saying Kelly wants to run the read-option offense. Even after Kelly pointed out that he adapted his offense to fit the skill sets of the quarterback he had at the University of Oregon, the idea is still out there that Nick Foles - despite throwing for 1,970 yards, 20 touchdowns and just one interception in seven starts and 218 pass attempts - is not the type of quarterback who can thrive under Kelly.
