Consider Balance When Building a Chariot

Below are several of the chariots shown at Tulsa Nationals, 2013.
If you were a mini, which chariot would you consider the most comfortable to pull?
We are looking at how level the chariot is when the mini is pulling...too high and the little mini could be pulled up off his feet, too low and too much pressure could be put on his back and injure him/her.

When you watch the videos, watch for how much the chariot bobs back and forth.

Toad Hill's Hob Goblin

This first link takes you to Goblin when he was foaled in 2010.

http://toadhillminis.blogspot.com/2010/05/second-foal-blue-roan-pinto-colt.html

2011 Nation Champion Top Ten Bred, Owned and Shown by Exhibitor -stallion, under
2011 - 3rd in Nation Top Ten Multicolor Stallion/Gelding under
(he lost to two other of my stallions who came in Champion, and Reserve Champion) 
You have to admit he's changed a lot since then. These photos were taken September 1, 2013. 
He has had a summer of some driving training. When he came back he was a little hard to catch, but this may also be because he has be playing stallion.
Above, Goblin out runs Tucker, an Australian Shepherd.



Rough measurement today, just under 31 inches.

Link to Pirate's first ride in the MiniVan


VIDEO from June 9, 2013

After owning and showing Pirate back in 2011 I am just getting around to putting up photos of the little guy. 

Sure you can read about him at the MiniVan blog:


Just click on the photo above to see the MiniVan post.

All these photos were taken in November, 2011 when I first got Pirate.



Now for the August, 2013 photos - see below. He has a shorter coat, but growing hair in the bridle path and getting a little fat from hanging out with his mares.

  
During the winter he was well conditioned running up an down his run with another stallion across the fence. But this summer, he has been in since Memorial Day with two mares. Too much time to graze resulted in a puggy tummy.
 


  

Always need a TEETH photo.

Foxfires LimeLight

Foxfire's LimeLight was purchase along with a couple other minis several years ago. Since I have changed my direction with breeding, LimeLight is for sale. She has produced two foals to date and has been in the field with Lucky Four Rebelchase Rebelheir.

LimeLight is registered as black, but appears more dark chocolate brown to me. She is a sabino overo and does not carry the LWO gene.

*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Toad Hill's Wind in the Willows foaled a black/white pinto filly who we named Pepper. There is a link to the page I did where I compared Pepper to Merlin, the 2011 colt Willow produced.
http://toadhillminis.blogspot.com/2013/05/willows-foals-2013-compared-to-2011.html

But now it is time to create a page just for Pepper. As time goes by I will add photos just as I have for the other foals at Toad Hill.
