Kayella- we missed you! It was actually REALLY crowded this year compared to previous years. They changed the route and it seemed to help a lot. Plus we got to tour old time Katy in the process of walking the parade, so that was pretty neat. They estimated 50 entries and about 2000 people came to see the parade. Quite the turn out!

Wallaby- <3 <3 <3 you're now my bestest friend ever ;) that's way better! Now maybe I can actually use it for my facebook profile hehe

Thanks Michaelvanessa! Yeah, I'm anxious for her to loose the belly and get back in shape, she looks aweful when compared to her summer pics last year, but I know it will come back in time :)

I like the pink too! I was originally going to do purple but I could only find a pink bonnet (its actually for a pony, I had to 'fix' it as you can see xD) and fleece to make polos, so I went with pink. She can definitely pull it off!

Glad all went well.
Just a side note since I haven't seen pictures before now, your breaching does not looked hooked correctly or at all. The cart is going to far forward and the traces are getting too much slack. This could be a big problem if you go down even a small slope.

Thanks for the note, Yeah, I was talking about the breeching with Michael and a few other people earlier. They are attached to the rings where I was told they should be attached, but I think the breeching it self, as well as the pieces that attach it to the cart (sorry, I don't know what they're called) are WAY too big for her which is a huge problem (you can see them hanging down by her belly in the pictures). I'm saving right now to buy new breeching to fix that. Any suggestions on how to 'fix' it temporarily? One thing I've tried doing is double looping the pieces that attach the breeching to the cart, which shortened them considerably and helped keep the cart in place, but I wasn't sure how safe that is.

Yay Sour!! Good pony!!!

Great pictures!

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

It is a bit big but it needs moved up several inches and it is not hooked correctly. Moving up and wrapping the straps properly should work. Taffy has photo's on how to do it.

I think I'll need to punch new holes in it then, its on its smallest setting and is still hanging down a lot. *sigh* and they told me it was for Size B miniatures! I'll look up how to correctly attach it too. Thanks for catching that ^_^

It is very common to have to punch holes so don't worry about that. Minis are so different in size and shape that not one size fits all.
