Hi there, remember me? I am in desperate need of a place to board my "Colonel". The stable is closing. Is your offer of him staying at your place still open? I know that you liked him alot. If not, do you know of anyone that'd be willing to board him for me? I could even care for him myself if you know of a small pasture near Quincy. Please let me know ASAP. I don't have much time left. Thanks and take care! Hugs, Cheri
Thanks for adding The Horse Boy video. It was an amazing story of perseverance and love. I see his parents now have a farm where they are helping other autistic children with horses. It's funny that none of us can explain the connection the horses and the children have. It a gift that God have given them is all I can say.
Nice pics Sissy. Your boy is doing well and adjusting to his new "digs". He loves sleeping in the sand and today he can come out and eat some grass on the tie out. I see his haircoat is beginning to shine up and that little "hay belly" looks sleeker. I will try to get his bridle path clipped and play with the clippers again. He does better with it each time. Are you ready to decide on our Halloween costumes yet?
I am respoding to your comment about clicker training. Actually, no we don't. The way we teach all of our mini's tricks is by bribery with treats that they really enjoy. At first, we give them a treat every time they perform the trick. Then after awhile, we lessen the treats and eventually they are to the point where they will do the tricks by getting rewarded with a pat.
The minis are so cute.... We have a couple down the road near the school and the rest home. there are always people picnicing there playing with the ponies. Its really good to see!!
Whats your town /climate like. Were nearing the end of summer already. Its been a bit warm though. We thought of moving to OZ, as all our friends just moved, but think it'll be a bit hot. You can't do anything!
Hi, thanks for the welcome! I haven't been able to explore much yet, but the site looks great. We're trying to be outside as much as we can before the big deep freeze comes :( Look forward to checking it all out!
