What a great idea! For someone like me, who got into minis late in life (mid sixties) I wish I had looked at them at a younger age. The three farms would be interesting especially if they were in 3 different parts of the country. That way each could show the problems each has to face in their area of the country as far as weather and feed and hay prices.
For tv you would have to find a farm that is involved with more than one thing, the sisters at CMC for example, Lee Crutchfield and his Zoo, Reeces with the different breeds an sisters. Have to have comedy and chaos to keep attention.
Yes, Aloha Acres was one of my three as well. Paula at LP Painted Ponies is my third pick. A completely different viewpoint, as she has Futurity winners that are going on into WORKING careers. REAL work, like moving downed trees and prepping garden areas. Not too many folks like her left in any breed.
I may add a couple more suggestions, as I said before, we want a wide variety for the season to be picked up for following seasons.
Drama and variety and comedic relief...all that the G audiences desire to stay tuned in!!
I'd like to see an episode on Chance's rescue, too. Let folks see what happens to horses when things go wrong.....and just how dedicated horse lovers are when it comes to giving them another--better--life.
Hello! I have been quietly reading all of these wonderful responses to Debby's post. I am the director of casting and talent at a large Los Angeles based non-scripted television production company and I very interested in your world as a potential reality/docu-series.
I'd love to hear privately from any of you who might be interested in having his or her farm the centerpiece of a tv series.
Feel free to contact me at [email protected] and use the phrase "Debby sent me" in the subject line.
For total chaos, there isn't any family with more chaos than the Sansevere's at Enchanted Hollow in Minnesota. Her posts on FB and all the off the wall things that happen there keep me rolling in my chair - and EVERYONE in that family is totally involved with their minis and ponies.
