Driving Team - Frame Overos

Mini Bucks Chasing Rainbows and Mini Bucks Avalanche are now my new driving team.  They were trained by "Squirt" down in Arthur. He does a great job, and has trained a number of my minis...both ones he bought from me and now others when I need the help.
This is the most recent team. I loaned Squirt my breaking chariot and if we do not sell this team at the Arthur sale, June 8th....they might very well become a chariot team.

The filly who is 3 years old is the one with the black ears and black tail.

They look like they need more work to get in the right condition. This winter they did very little but just hang around in the nasty weather.

Just imagine this team in their blue harness that I used for Toad Hill's Lincoln Award and Toad Hill's Balrige Award (photo below) pulling a black chariot!!

More Chariot Videos

So far I have three videos on this page.
First video is from Horse and Pony Fun Days in Arthur, IL.  The first few minutes are of chariots. The rest is just plan fun with horses and ponies and minis.

Came across these today:

Here are 2 of the 3 videos by Enitress A, I don't know who that is, but the horse is a mini!!

This is supposed to be a video of the chariot after some noise reduction.

Below is first video with noise.

Willow's Foals - 2013 compared to 2011

May 6, 2013 Toad Hill's Wind in the Willows had a beautifully colored black pinto. 

FUNNY thing happened as I uploaded the Merlin from 2011 photos mixed up with Pepper, 2013 foal.

This is PEPPER, 2013 above

This is Merlin, 2011 above

Want to be more confused?

This is Merlin from 2011

So do I have you confused yet?
The rest of the photos below are Pepper (May, 2013)
