I don't know if ya'lls remember a little black dwarf named Tootie, that I helped with my shoes or not...she was down so far on her back legs, that she was walking on her fetlock bone and actually the bone between the fetlock and the hock, can't think of the name of it right now, but anyway, you can imagine how bad this baby's back legs were at birth! Her Momma and Daddy got her hooves trimmed very aggressively, like I asked them to, and then applied the *Magic Shoes*, well her legs needed to be braced along with the shoes, and they did get stronger, but her toes were still wanting to flip up a bit, so I suggested that they drill holes in the back of the shoes and put a puppy collar just above her hocks and attach a couple bungie cords to it and the shoe, acting like a set of tendons to keep her hoof flat on the ground...they did as I suggested, and it worked! She wore them for awhile and then was able to go with just her shoes that had a back and outside extension. I am so very proud of her Momma and Poppa, because they have been SO committed to helkping this baby get up onto her back hooves!

Well, Momma sent me some pictures of Poppa and Tootie at their last rodeo, you see Poppa is a rodeo clown!...NEAT, huh? Very Happy I sure wish they would come close to Houston, because I would dearly LOVE to meet them and little Tootie, and her big sister, Dixie(who wears one back shoe) and is also in the rodeo act).
I will write and ask Momma if it's OK to post those pictures, if so, I will add them to this thread.

ANYWAY I received this e-mail from Momma today, thought I would share it with ya.


Thank you for getting the glue to us so quickly. We were at a rodeo this past weekend at Denison, Texas, and of course, everyone wanted to see and pet the horses, most of all, Tootie and Dixie. One lady came over to see little Tootie, and said - "Oh, I see she has on the "MAGIC SHOES". I looked at her surprised, and said, do you know about the "MAGIC SHOES?" She said that ANYONE who is around mini's at all know about JANELL JENSEN and Little Bit's Magic Shoes. I hope you had warm thoughts on Friday night, because you were spoken of very highly at the Denison Texas Quarter Horse Assn. Annual Rodeo. Bless you, Janell.

Tootie again was a show stopper to say the least. This time, on Saturday night, she "posed" when the box opened to reveal her, then just sprang off the front! Raymond said he could hear the "oohs and ahhhs" as the crowd saw her and how cute she was with her little saddle and rhinestone halter. She just trotts so proudly out of the arena, and absolutely loves it when we put that little saddle on her. She holds her head up higher, and walks so briskly! It is so cute. I love her being with us, and oh the loving that she gets at the shows. Dixie is jealous, and "sulks" and refuses to eat her treats that we give them after Tootie's act. We are really having to give her lots of loving too, and show her how much we still love her too. But - don't worry - they ALL - even the big ones get lots and lots of loving from us.

Do you still have the little blanket that we can use for Tootie? If you do, we'd like to buy it from you, if possible. We have one for Dixie, but not one for Tootie. We won't need them until fall, I'm sure, but, we like to have them just in case.

I know that you've had a tough few months, and just want you to know how special we think you are.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Love,
Janie


A lady in the little town of Filer, where my folks used to live, sent me her little dwarf's blanket, after he passed away, it is a BEAUTIFUL red & blue fleece lined blanket, with "SAM" embroideried(sp) on it. Since I never blanket any of the Biscuits here in the winter, I told Janie that if it fit Tootie, she could have it, and of course I will GIVE it to her, I wouldn't dream of selling it to her!....I'll just ask for a picture of little Tootie wearing it next winter. Very Happy
