This is a video that I Zoe and I made for a competition that a comedian we are fans of is running.

The idea was that you had to dress up as bear to one of his songs thats called "Bears don't dig on Dancing".(He first performed it at a charity show for an animal welfare organisation.)

Anyway we thought we'd strectch the rules a little and make one of Zoe in bear ears and Bj (who can dance around much better than we can 8) )

And if your interested in the song just type "Tim Minchin" into youtube and there is heaps of his stuff you can listen to. (Just a note - there is a fair bit of swearing and the like in a lot of them.)

Thankyou :D
Thats funny about the shoes because the shoes I normally wear broke the day before (probally serves me right sneakers don't last long with our horses (I don't like to wear boots anymore)) and the white ones were just an old pair I stopped wearing because I don't like skate shoes!!
I know what you mean I wanna go play with him everytime I watch it, but we agist :(

Here is a post my siss made for some videos of our ponies ^^

1.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2SH8Q9XS_s
This one is a collection of clips from over last summer. We took them with a different camera and it ended up hundreds of megabytes so I posted stills instead. Anyway this is the edited version and the quality is awful.
Anyway it inlcudes lots of trotting around with Poppy with some pretty awful corners - I have been really trying since then to ask her to step under and bend, but as soon as my attention switches backwards she loses trot. There is a bit of spanish walk in there (which I've lost a bit at the moment, maybe because i have been working on getting collected walk and she gets a bit confused).
There is a bit of Bj playing (his rears are so much better now - see video 2) and a bit with him picking up his dog toy.
At the end is a clip from the first ride where Poppy offered spanish walk .

2.
http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXUB1Q-ZkIM
This one is recent. Bj does some of his nice round rears (although he lands a bit funny - like he is leaning back) and some his nice arched neck walk - which he is starting to use his back legs more in.
Poppy also does her round, stepping under walk. Its not the best footage of it, but I reward if she steps under nicely or if she tries to lift her front end and I reward lots if she manages both. I notice in the video she tends to lose it all though each time I give her a treat. I love the bit where I have walked off and she follows and does a nice round balanced walk all by herself.

3.

Another video as Pops had a bit more energy this time and was trotting around a bit. It has on it some of my attempts at getting her better balanced as she does circles. She is starting to get the idea on the left but still wheels a bit to the right.
It also has a bit of Bj playing at the start...
