Woohoo for my little buddy Domino!!! We competed last weekend at the Nashoba Carriage Classic in Germantown, TN. Had a great time and got some great ribbons. I can't help but boast about Dimo's Dressage skills... He won his training level dressage test, and got the highest score out of ponies, and horses! You go little mini!!!
He's getting quite full of himself... thinks he's an official "show pony" now :)

Here are some pictures from my very first Carriage Driving Show, the Cannon Carriage Classic held at beautiful Valhalla Farms in Woodbury, TN. What great fun! The mini I drove, Domino was a good boy.

Have you heard of Nurse-Mare babies? They are primarily a product of the racing industry. Many end up orphan babies needing special care and loving homes. Read this article to learn more about them and what you can do to help!
I suspect that my sister's pony, Sketch was either an Orphan foal or Twin. At any rate, he may have been a nurse mare baby. He's been the best now for over 20 years for my family!
