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.

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.

Painting a House

Painting A House // Painting Pony

My parents have been in the process of building their house on the farm for years now. Everyone in the family has pitched in with help along the way, as this certainly has been a DIY endeavor (mainly on the part of my dad). While it has taken years to get to where it is now, it’s finally reaching the home stretch as drywall went up a few weeks ago and the walls are getting painted this week!

When the ponies heard rumors of hiring a painter, they scoffed and offered up their skills as expert brush wielders!

The garage was about as far as we got before Minnow started to realize we’d need a lot more ponies to complete this task!

Just look at that sweet face, always willing to help!

I love these photos, because it shows me just how far Minnow has come since he came to live with me in 2003. Back then he would have never set foot in this garage, he was spooky and nervous, and quite unsure. Now he’ll literally go anywhere for me. Walking into the garage was just an average day to him, and he didn’t so much as bat an eye at the boxes of tools and construction equipment. He’s truly one of a kind, and I’m happy that he got to put his little stamp brushstroke on the new farmhouse.

New in the Shop! April Paintings by Minnow

Well it took me long enough, but I’m finally here to share some of the new paintings Minnow created at the end of April.

It was a pretty spring day when we broke out the easel and brushes, and Minnow was thrilled to pick up the paints again. It was a long hard winter, and it’s been far too long since we’ve painted! So here are some of Minnow’s newest works…

“Breeze” is one of Minnow’s newest works and I love the how calming the purples are in this one.

You can check out Breeze in our shop.

“Whispering Forrest” reminds me of the scurrying animals that begin to come alive in the forrest this time of year.

You can check out this Whispering Forrest in the shop.

Minnow also created a few special order paintings for a few people. Here’s a fun little video of Minnow working his magic…

The Super Painting Ponies

Halloween is one of my favorite “Holidays”, mostly in part because I have always loved creating costumes. None of my animals are safe during Halloween time, and even the ponies got in on the fun the other day as they so kindly allowed me to dress them up as Super Ponies!

Our adorable trio make for some pretty striking Super Heroes!

Our two brothers, Blitz and Boomer, made for a particularly adorable pair. And I’m pretty sure Blitz was convinced that younger brother Boomer was dressed as his sidekick.

Of course somehow Boomer always manages to steal the show…..

But Blitz was determined to be top Super Pony, and he showed us just how fast he can fly!

I’m pretty sure if I was in need of rescuing I’d want these Super Heroes to save me!

Meanwhile on the sidelines, adorable Ammo was in charge of all costume changes….
