Good Boy, Pippin!

If you follow Living a Dream, you know the lovely Hafflingers Pippin and Doc.  Well, this weekend Pippin took his Mrs. Owner and "that guy who always hangs around her" to a driving clinic.  I watched the Friday session, in which Pippin was a long-lining star!  Not only was he just plain adorable, but he was also completely business-like.  He paid absolutely no attention to the spectators, the other horses passing by the door, or the lady driving a Gator in the arena.  He willingly did everything asked of him, and he worked hard.  Good boy, Pippin!  Good job on all your hard work, Mrs. Owner!




Back at the ranch, our footing is unfrozen, at least for the time being.  David rode Boomer, and I gave Paj a light work.  It's so nice to have warm weather.

I love your video and your positive spin on Pippin's adventures with Jeff. Thanks! I needed that!
Even though I am somewhat biased.... I do think he did a great job - and he was even better with a different bit today! I'm so glad you came and proved to be such a great videographer... better than, "that guy who always hangs around her!"

Thanks for taking us to the clinic. I read Dreaming and recognize Pippin.
He did a great job...what a treat. I love long lining.

Cool video, Terry. That big creature running in circles was a horse, wasn't it? Love, Joe

Good show, Pippin and your mane and tail are just gorgeous! You guys didn't get any of our snow storm? I guess you don't need any more of that where you are.
