Today was a busy day spent in training with the miniature horses Little
Man and Major. We have a date to visit North Adams nursing home in
Mendon, Illinois on November 7th. We continue practicing standing
quietly while being hugged and petted and sometimes even kissed on the
nose. Today we also spent practicing some of our tricks such as
jumping, standing and pirouetting on the pedestal, rolling the ball,
and of course bowing for the end of our fabulous performance. We have
fun every day when we train and I think I never have laughed so much as
I do when I play with the minis! MINI POWER!!!!!
Spent some additional time riding Jazz out in my big pasture and checked
fence lines and also did some click-treat training with my girls Tango
and Marina. We are playing with saddling at liberty and following me
over and around an obstacle course. Another great day of fun and
partnership with my horses and my puppy Journey.

Hi Becky,

I have to wonder how the appointment in Mendon, Illinois at the nursing home went.

If your world is anything like mine right now you are busy with all the winter prep chores that have piled up waiting for them to be done in turn, and while living a life as well. LOL]

Been so busy.

I'm trying to imagine Major performing his repertoire of tricks for folks, and all the love and admiration coming his way - deserved of course - for what he gives.

I find it remarkable that I have such an interest and admiration for ponies and minis yet not the least desire to own one. Peculiar, isn't it?

I guess my affection for Andalusians prevails. Of course my Altea is only one inch away from being a pony, though she looks similar to a rather big horse. Something about her confirmation.

The picture of your g'nephew with Major (or is that Little Man?) reminds me of the wonderful things that can happen between we humans and our equine companions. Thank you for sharing your sweethearts with us.

Don, Altea, and Bonnie Cupcake
