Minnow’s Adventures at the Ludwigs Corner Horse Show

Well it took me long enough to get an update on the blog about our Labor Day Weekend Adventures at the Ludwigs Corner Horse Show, but better late than never!

Minnow “kicked” off his first performance of the day by showing off some of his favorite tricks.

He’s never shy about telling me how he feels in my choice of wardrobe.

Or that he’s quite happy being retired from riding.

Minnow even posed for photographs from the paparazzi.

Minnow then painted some fabulous works of art, you can see them all in our shop!

After taking his bow it was time for Ammo to show off some of his “super” tricks.

Always the showmen, Ammo and Minnow put on a great show! And all just before a nasty thunder and lightning storm rolled through the grounds. Minnow made it safely onto the horse trailer to wait out the storm while the rest of us rode it out under our tent. But once it passed Minnow came out to paint a bit more.

Sunday at Ludwigs

painting pony performance

On Sunday we proceeded to set up shop again at the Ludwigs Corner Horse Show. We lucked out with wonderful weather over the weekend, and by Sunday Ammo and Minnow were drawing even larger crowds than Saturday.

Minnow spent most of the day standing on his pedestal inside his corral, posing for anyone that wanted a picture.

We set up several “mini” performances for throughout the day. Minnow enjoyed showing off some of his favorite tricks as well as painting a special piece each time.

I think everyone especially liked Minnow’s baseball trick. He hopes to one day try out for his favorite team, the Philadelphia Phillies.

Minnow painted four new pieces that are available for purchase in shop! Lollypop, Dandelion Fields, Super Blue, and Trickle.

Ammo had his time to shine too, as he showed the kids what a great “super hero” he is. He always gets lots of chuckles when he puts on his stunt helmet.

I love that Ammo is quite content to let all the children pet him. Dachshunds sometimes get labeled as a “snappy” breed that aren’t always great with children – but I think Ammo proves that with proper training and socialization that this isn’t necessarily true.

We had a great time performing at Ludwigs, and hope to be back again next year! If you want to see more photos from our weekend you can visit Ammo’s Blog.

Saturday at Ludwigs

On Saturday and Sunday I took Minnow & Ammo the Dachshund to the Ludwigs Corner Horse Show. We’ve been going to this event for the past 3 years now, but this was the first year we were invited to come for 2 days. As the years have passed Minnow & Ammo have become a much larger attraction – drawing some pretty big crowds this year.

It’s always fun to meet new people and even connect with people who have been fans of Ammo & Minnow over the years.

One of my favorite parts of the day was when a group of little girls spotted Ammo – and realized they knew him from our Youtube Videos. One of the little girls shouted “It’s Ammo, he’s from the videos! He’s so Epic!”. I’m pretty sure it went straight to Ammo’s head as he licked the little girl’s faces.

Minnow painted 3 new paintings on Saturday: Chincoteague Blooms, Surf’s Up, and Raspberry Blush – all of which are available in the SHOP.
