Our latest purchase, from Dennis Cusik in Heber City - "Quiero Saber de Ti", or more popularly known as "Willy". (Willy Wonka, according to the barn help)

I originally looked at him for Megan, but decided he's a little too much for her at the moment, but couldn't pass him up so I bought him for me. In this clip he's showing off his spectacular ground manners (no treats involved - he's just hooked on to her...). Mostly I posted this one because the riding ones are too long - I'll update when he actually comes to live with us. (next Friday) Now, Willy comes complete with an optional "Free Wild BLM Burro" package - which we're still debating. I think I may have my friend Amy convinced to be backup for me on the burro in case my fence won't hold her (she was extremely cute and lovable - we didn't see the wild side, but I'm sure it's there). Megan and Alison were definitely enthralled - and the burro seemed to really like them, but it will break Buck's "No Mares on the Place" rule. Her name is Muffin, but Amy says if we bring her home we'll change it - Juniper is the favorite at the moment.
