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.

Misty of Chincoteague Night Light // Painting Pony

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!

Chincoteague Pony Penning 2012 – Recap

We’re back from the 87th Annual Chincoteague Pony Penning, and boy did we have fun!

2012 Chincoteague Pony Penning - Minnow the Painting Pony

Minnow spent all week painting and performing at the Chincoteague Pony Centre – something that we have done for the past 5 years in a row.

Minnow did not disappoint this year yet again – as he painted and sold 9 new canvases during our week long stay.

I say this every year, but Minnow really does do his best work while we are down on the island!

Not only did Minnow paint during the nightly shows at the Pony Centre, but he also performed our new skit – Super Hero Bootcamp.

Arguably one of our best performances to date, Minnow really showed his stuff!

Minnow was on fire all week – and practically drug me into the arena each night to perform. He truly loves it, and really kept the performance alive with his energy.

I was very proud of him, especially since I came down with a nasty cold the day we left for Chincoteague. I struggled to keep my energy up (something needed for this type of performance) – but Minnow proved he had more than enough for the both of us and really helped me keep going all week.

Even though I was fighting my cold all week, I still managed to attend the main festivities! The pony swim and auction!

Yes, I have seen it 5 years in a row now….but it never gets old.

It’s just so fascinating, and I love seeing the new foals that are born each year.

This year I timed the swim perfectly. I woke up at my normal time, headed to pony swim lane, hiked through the swamp, and only had to wait about 1/2 hour before the swim started.

The weather this year was perfect too – not too hot, with just the right amount of breeze….probably why a lot of the stallions were extra feisty this year.

On Thursday I watched the auction – but this year I didn’t get up early enough to make the very start of it (mostly because a few days of not enough rest and a bad cold had caught up with me – so I decided to sleep in a bit).

With cute babies like these I have no idea how I come back without one every year!

Sadly our time on Chincoteague had to come to an end – and now I’ll have to wait another whole year before we can return to see the swim and auction. Sigh, it’s going to be a long year….

If you would like to see all of the photos from the pony swim and auction click HERE. You can also purchase prints here as well.

Check out our online SHOP to see more original paintings by Minnow and his brothers.

New April Paintings in the Shop!

Well it’s taken me way too long to get the paintings Minnow created on April 1st at the Point to Point Races up in the shop. Several of them have sold already, but we do have a few left that are available for purchase.

We tried something new this time with a few of Minnow’s paintings. Instead of having him paint on canvas, he painted on bristol board. We then matted them to fit standard size frames and made them available for a budget friendly price of $45!

Below are three of the paintings we still have available in the shop – click on each image to see them in the Shop!

Minnow also painted a new canvas which we titled “April Fool” on account of him painting it on April Fools Day at the Point to Point races.

Purchase it in the shop HERE.

I think all of his new paintings have the perfect touch of Spring in them. Don’t you?
