The last two visits to the farm have been wet and grey, so my camera stayed warm and cozy at the house while I ventured out into the elements. On days like this, I’m mostly head down getting it all done. I still take time to have snuggles with Gully, I just spend a lot less time on the farm.
This last week, I went through my treats dance with Athena and squatted in front of her as she sniffed around. To my surprise, she actually nuzzled her nose into my hand looking for treats. For multiple seconds. Pushing her fuzzy nose around and around. It caught me so off guard that I sat there tearing up with joy. I stared into her face as she continued on, oblivious of how much the moment meant to me. This one definitely goes down in the records.
Here are some snapshots from my phone of the two weeks. There are so few because of the crazy weather. I can’t WAIT for Spring!!
Wet ponies wait for me to start preparing their dinner.
I definitely wore the wrong boots this last week!
Little fat psycho Delilah angling for cuddles. (I – and my shins! – have learned my lesson in not reaching down to pet her even if she’s being super cute. And by shins I mean that if I step wrong, she’ll grab me. And by grab me, I mean, “OW!”)
“Are you sure you won’t give me anymore treats??”
And once again, beautiful Athena finishes off the post! I still can’t get over how much progress I’ve made with her.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week! And don’t forget to follow me on Twitter (@mindingtheminis) if you want live tweets and photos from the farm on Sunday afternoons.

How sweet was what that about the nuzzling, I teared up with you. I love your pictures. Keep them coming
Thank you so much for such a wonderful comment, Susan! Athena actually approached me with another person present yesterday and I was very proud of the moment. Patience pays off. :) Plus I have new treats for everybody and she LOVES these ones.
