Happy President's Day from the PNHS. How many remember Macaroni? ... See moreSee less
In honor of President’s Day…
One of the best known pets of the White House was Macaroni the pony. Macaroni was a gift to John F. Kennedy’s daughter, Caroline, from then Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson. While the pony was usually stabled in Virginia, he was frequently brought to the White House where he freely roamed the grounds. A photo of Caroline Kennedy with Macaroni that was featured in Life Magazine inspired the popular song “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond.
