I took Rootbeer over to Jo's and Wan brought her two minis. Shann was supposed to come but her plumber showed up.
I didn't get a shot of Jo's minis, Mystic & Maverick, but here is the rest of the gang waiting for things to get underway:
Peppy, Pokey & Rootbeer
Another neighbour, Dave, drives & shows minis and was coming over to give us a bit of a clinic. I had gotten a pony sized driving harness from my vet. It doesn't quite fit well enough to actually hook a cart but Dave managed to size it down & rig it up enough to ground drive him. After all that's all I had in line as a goal right now... then it soon became obvious that Rootbeer must have been driven sometime in his past!
Rootbeer & Dave
He stepped out like a pro, walking at a nice, steady forward walk. No putsing around or dragging his feet. He knows 'gee' and 'haw' and best of all he seemed to really enjoy himself.
Oh boy I bet Pie is going to be sooo happy when I tell him I want to buy some new harness that will actually fit to hook with and a cart ;)
That's a content pony :)
