Of course only I would show up to work on one of the only Saturdays I have off! Since I was already there and it was early I asked me boss to take JJ on the main road, she approved! I stole the BM to come with me so I had another pair of hands on deck. He impressed me so much! Didn't bat an eyelash at cars, trucks or buses whizzing by at 40mph. The bikes didn't phase him either. We got to 711 and he stood like a CHAMP with slack in the reins and he leg cocked. I probably could of tie him up without a bother. The lucky boy got a few handfuls of cheerios out of the deal!

Here's his view


And us


When we got back I changed engines and took Venus out the residential area for the first time ever. She also doesn't care about traffic, but she is way more sensitive to the grates, manhole covers, and lines in the road. She was actually bunny hopping the white stop sign lines. Other then that she took it like a champ.

Hi again!!

JJ got all dressed up for Halloween this year and raised almost $200 for our barn by giving short rides. He was a police officer, I was an inmate and I got a piece of cardboard and made the cart into the paddy wagon! I have a bunch of photos but for some reason I don't see where I can upload a photo onto horse forum... did they change it?

I've been trying to ground drive them side by side more, and tandem if I can get someone to help me out. I'm dying to have a cart/wagon where I can have both pulling!

Just a few videos:

Whoa means woah (except when there is food on the ground I guess, then it means stop and snack)

Hanging 6 feet from the road. I swear, there is typically so much traffic I have to wait to cross. He was pretty ready to just go home already since I had driven him around the neighborhood.

My friend at the barn driving JJ. She cracks me up!

Cutest donkey ever.

I'm writing all of my replies from the hospital, and this absolutely brightens my day <3

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Now only if you could see the pics of him in his costume! You'd be burning up you feel so bright!

I'm glad he could bring some happiness to your day!

WHY haven't I found this before?? Someone should have told me, such cuteness.

Now how do I even start trying to teach Poncho to drive?

ok, I deleted some photos and uploaded the new ones! Here we go...

Yeah, Venus is not into sharing!



Not thrilled about getting to work.



I was sitting on a stump petting them and he decided his head was to heavy. His face hair hasn't quite grown in since I clipped him... he has schnauzer eyebrows!



Here's the paddy wagon!



My little police officer!



Me and the officer..



This one was from yesterday, look at the hansom stance! JJ is showing off his new rope halter.

That is just such a fantastic moment, LOVE IT.

It really was beyond words. Imagine enjoying something that much? This child doesn't say mama or dada... Nothing, zip, zilch. It's really defied everything everyone thought they knew about this child.

These cute little guys really have just made my day and night, this is positively wonderful.
