Looks like a great day out for all the family. My kids and grandkids love being hands on with creatures. Interaction with young people builds a foundation for their life. Growing up without fears.

"By the time of her death, she had...300,000 objects in all..." I see now, the difference between hoarding and collecting may be how much money you leave behind to deal with the aftermath. I'm glad to see Margaret's compulsion turned into enjoyment for others, likely true of many (almost all?) museums.

I'm always amazed at how many interesting places there are to visit. This very much sounds like my kind of attraction and I had no idea it existed. Some of the most interesting places I've visited are those which display the collecting hobbies of the very wealthy, such as the Getty Museum and Villa.

Assuming these ponies are well cared for, as most animal owners do for their animals, the children of Vienna are being denied an important experience. The opportunity to interact with and enjoy a large animal and ride on it. Where else will kids living in a large city go for such an experience? I recall with great fondness and excitement my first pony rides at the fair and am tired of a shrill minority dictating its will to the rest of us.

We just visited this park recently and didn't see anyone on this ride, nor were we particularly interested in it.
