Zane with Zorro!

And entry from my Mom...

Zane and I went to Mary Purchanski's (?spelling) barn today to meet with Nadine, her Fresian filly and the farrier. I knew that Mary and Nadine had three mini's there, so Zane and I came armed with a bag of carrots to treat the little guys with. Zane is trained well -- he said "Hand, flat." That's how he knows to hold the carrot so his fingers don't get nibbled accidently!

Nadine was so sweet and offered to put the harness on Zorro and take us for a ride in the cart! What a kick!! Zorro is a stallion mini and he is very well behaved. We just love his bushy bangs and his little hoofs made a little clicking sounds on the road. Nadine urged him into a trot with no trouble at all as we giggled and bounced along behind him.

We had so much fun, I just had to share this great photo that Nadine took of Mimi & Zane with Zorro!! A truly bright, very sweet moment and experience and Nadine was so wonderful to make this happen -- it was very hot out there!

Enjoy! Kim & Zane
