Painting Before Pony Penning

With our Pony Penning Trip just around the corner (next week!) Minnow has been doing a little painting to get ready.

Minnow the Painting Pony

With Paintbrush in mouth, he’s been creating some special masterpieces to take with us on the trip to the island.

Minnow is all smiles, as one of his favorite things to do is to paint!

Around here we like to think the mark of a true artist is the mess he leaves behind – and Minnow certainly knows how to make a mess!

Minnow and Ammo on Animal Planet, The Year in Pup Culture

On December 22, 2012 Animal Planet aired a new show called The Year in Pup Culture.

The Year in Pup Culture // Ammo the Dachshund on Animal Planet


It’s an action-packed hour of non-stop, over-the-top cuteness. THE YEAR IN PUP CULTURE looks back at the defining moments of 2012 as only Animal Planet can — with puppies! These adorable pups reenact the most memorable moments of the year, including scenes from top blockbuster movies and ripped-from-the headline bits. If these moments piqued public interest in 2012, they are getting “puppified” in the cutest hour on television.

The exciting thing about this show is that they had requested to use a clip of Minnow and Ammo playing together on the farm. This is the third Animal Planet Show which has shared clips of my boys, America’s Cutest Dogs, America’s Cutest Cats, and now The Year in Pup Culture. Well when I actually got to watch the boys on tv, I was excited to see that they had compared them to the Kardashians! I must admit, my guilty pleasure is watching Keeping up with the Kardashians.

Check out the boys in their debut:

Oh yes, you heard right – Ammo and Minnow are like the Kim & Kanye of Animal Planet! Well, except the fact that we’re best friends instead of lovers, although they do love each other dearly. Proof:

Ammo and Minnow

I’m pretty sure they now think this means they get designer dog and pony gear since they are associated with the Kardashian clan. Or at least a feature on Khloe Kardashian’s or Kim Kardashian’s Blog?

We’ll keep dreaming. 🙂

Announcing the Super Pony! DVD Release

The day has finally come! It’s time to announce the official release of the brand-new Super Pony DVD, staring the talented Minnow from Painting Pony and his sidekick, Ammo the Dachshund!

Super Pony DVD! Now available at Painting Pony

Thanks to my talented brother and Depthink Productions, we began filming for the DVD this past summer, and I’m so excited that it’s finally ready to share with everyone! I think everyone will really enjoy getting to learn more about all the ponies and watch several of Minnow & Ammo’s favorite “super” performances.

Check out the DVD Trailer:


Trainer, Kyley DiLuigi, introduces us to Super Pony, the alter ego of the talented Chincoteague Pony, Minnow! Watch as he shows us some of his favorite trick performances, many of which have been performed at expos, fairs, schools, and even the Annual Chincoteague Pony Penning. Several performances also include Minnow’s lovable sidekick, Ammo the Dachshund, as well as other members of the Painting Pony crew. In addition to 5 featured videos, this DVD also contains 2 bonus videos: a visit to Iron Horse Farm, home to the Painting Ponies; and a talk given by Kyley about everyone’s favorite Chincoteague Pony, Misty of Chincoteague.

Super Pony DVD! Now available at Painting Pony


In 2007, Painting Pony was founded when Kyley DiLuigi decided to bring her paints from art school out to the farm where she kept her 14-year-old pony, Minnow. That cold winter day Minnow became the World’s First Painting Chincoteague Pony as he created his very first masterpiece. As it became evident that Minnow had a gift that he truly loved, the paintings he created began to pile higher and higher. Feeling the need to share Minnow’s art with the world, Kyley started and the rest is history!

Super Pony DVD! Now available at Painting Pony

The New Painting Pony Introduction Video

You might remember that back in July the Painting Ponies and I began filming for the a brand new Painting Pony DVD. And while my Brother, Taylor, still has lots of editing to do before we can release our big Trick Performances DVD, I just couldn’t wait any longer to share our new Intro Video for the website.

It makes me smile to think of how far the boys have come in their training. And in case it’s not obvious enough in the video, the boys love to perform! I hope you enjoyed the video and learning a little bit more about each member of our painting crew. I love being able to share them with all of you, if only to bring a smile to your face today.

We hope to release our new DVD of Minnow’s big performances soon, but until then you can check out The Trick Ponies of Chincoteague DVD.

And if you’re looking for some video work make sure you check out Envision Event Media and Depthink Productions

Paintings of the Painting Ponies

If you follow along on Ammo the Dachshund’s blog, then you may have heard that I had ordered a custom painting of him from Yellow Brick Home.

After receiving Ammo’s painting in the mail I just knew I had to commission some paintings of the rest of my boys. I was so excited when they were waiting for me at home when I got back from Chincoteague!
