    So how do you fence in a mini with pipe? Can you?

    I laughed out loud when they had changed out the pen to one with smaller pipe gaps and it just went into the next pen. What a gorgeous baby!!!

    That is AWESOME ! They need to do mini jumping with that little guy. And so smart, almost too smart. I wouldn't want to drive him, he would get the cart tangled in the hazards!

    Oh geez, that's both adorably hilarious and nerve-wracking at the same time!

    I grinned through the whole thing but winced a time or two also. That little stinker just hopping through the pipe panels and then rocketing around with an obvious "neener" attitude...but the jumping of the pallets...yikes!

    I could imagine laughing my ass off chasing that little stinker around but also having a few small heart attacks. Way talented little bugger!

    Foals, just like human kids they'll make you go gray early, LOL!

    Wow, what a good jumper that little one is, scary, brave and good balance over jumps also.

    The way he crawled thru the panels reminded me of my little dog as a puppy, first time out in the yard, she just walked thru the 2" x 2" chain link fence without any trouble, ooops!
    I could not believe it.

    Wow, Isabeau! An accomplishment for your resume!

    Adorable video -- though I was afraid he'd break his little legs on the pallets. If that were my baby, I'd pick the pallets up.

    But I loved how he hopped out of mom's pen.

    I guess I am the only one who fears he is going to end up squished on the road? Definitely cute but even more definitely inadequate fencing which I would think we all agree is negligence. Sorry to spoil the cute fest.

    I don't think it was a pallet...looked like 2 4 x 4 with white PVC across to make raised poles...but still cringe worthy! Between the running, jumping everything, mares tied to trees with ropes on the ground, too much 'stuff' around for the babies to get into...accident with really bad results just waiting to happen.

    Yeeks. I didn't like the minis staked out to the trees or the foal jumping the stuff on the ground...but they are clever little scamps.

    Jill at the Shiloh Horse Rescue in Nevada uses pipe corrals and the minis are causing mayhem by walking into the other paddocks all the time.
