Minnow’s Expo Masterpieces & Sale

While we were at the PA Horse World Expo last week, Minnow created some wonderful one-of-a-kind paintings. Many of them went home with happy new owners, and we have a few still left that are now available in the shop. Each one is unique and different, but they all make me smile. Below is a selection of the paintings that are still available:

On the last day of the expo we put most of our canvas paintings on sale. And since I know not everyone could be there in person for the sale – Minnow decided that he’d like to extend the sale to his Online Shop as well. So from now until March 31, 2012, enter code EXPO2012 at checkout and get 30% OFF your order!

And thank you to everyone who supported us at the Expo, we hope you are enjoying your paintings!

2012 PA Horse World Expo – Chincoteague Minnow

Most of the people that came by our booth at the 2012 PA Horse World Expo probably thought that 19 year old Minnow was an old pro at attending expos.

He hopped off the trailer on Thursday morning, walked through the barns buzzing with clinicians and horses twice his size, and made his way through the rows and rows of expo booths to his corral on the expo show floor. He was the ONLY animal on the show floor for the duration of the expo – with not a single horse in sight.

Yet, despite Minnow’s professional attitude, this was the VERY FRIST time he attended an expo – let alone spend the majority of the time corralled on the show floor.

I was so proud of him – he’s come such a long way from his days of being terrified of EVERYTHING, and bolting at the slightest sound. I can attribute much of his success to the clicker training we began in 2004, but mostly Minnow & I just share this connection where he will do anything for me and vise versa.

He’s truly an amazing pony, and I’m glad he was able to make so many people smile during our visit to the PA Horse World Expo.

Below is a video I pulled together of Minnow’s experience at the expo – in case you missed it.

I hope to have some photos of a few of his newest paintings up on the blog shortly – and as always you can check out our online shop to see all of Minnow’s artwork.

PA Horse World Expo – Raffle Winner Announced!

While we were at the PA Horse World Expo in Harrisburg last weekend we held a raffle for a free custom 11×14 painting by Minnow the Painting Pony.

We had HUNDREDS of entries to win Minnow’s one-of-a-kind painting, but there could be only one winner. So when we got home from our trip (after rolling in the biggest mud puddle he could find), Minnow helped choose our winner.

Congrats to Brittany of Garnet Valley, PA!

Thanks to everyone who came by the booth and entered. You can check out all of the ponies’ available paintings in our online shop.

Last year Boomerang and I attended the expo to compete in the Craig Cameron Extreme Cowboy Race, in which we finished 6th in the finals! This year we aren’t competing in the Cowboy Race though, instead we will be in the main hall at booth # 607 & 608! And if that wasn’t exciting enough, Minnow will be there too, corralled at our booth and on hand to meet his fans and paint!
