It’s Never Too Early to Start Thinking About…

Last week was L.A. Pup, a local contest for puppies.

But what about the ponies?  It’s never too early to start thinking about EQUUS, which also hosts the annual North American Pony/Trainer title contest!  If you are a pony or trainer and would like to serve your community for a year while bearing this prestigious title, why not consider running in 2020?

The application is here; click to follow to the official website link!

The judges for our leather title will be Mistress Cyan St. James, Liza BG Sibley, Jody Sibley, Rebecca Wilcox and Trixie LaFontaine.

Of course, we always welcome participants and spectators as well.  Just look at how much fun we had at our draft games last year!

L.A. Pup Pride This Weekend!

It’s early November and that means it’s time for L.A. Pup Pride weekend!

Here’s the itinerary:

On Friday, November 8th, swing by the Bullet Bar at 9 p.m. for a meet and greet with the contestants, Pups Apollo, Hunter, Orion, and Templar.  There will be a mosh and puppy go-go dancers for your entertainment.

On Saturday, enjoy a FREE panel on headspace with the SoCal Creatures at 11 a.m. at the MCC Annex, to be followed by a “PG” mosh.  Come for a day of education and fun before the contest to determine the 2020 L.A. Pup!

Later, doors open at 7 p.m. at the MCC Church for the L.A. Pup contest.  Refreshments, performances, raffles, and silent auctions will keep you busy as you watch the contest for the fifth L.A. Pup in one of the biggest pup contests in southern California.  Afterwards, the party moves to the Bullet Bar for “Pleasure and Pain” for a night of kinky pleasures.  (Cover is only $3 if you have your L.A. Pup Pride wristband!)

On Sunday, November 10th, join the winner of the contest for a victory party at Eagle L.A. at 4 p.m.

Ponies Are Clever!

Does your pony seem to know what you’re thinking?  Are they too clever for their own good?  New studies confirm that bio-horses are smarter than we realized.  They can recognize, gauge, and remember human facial expressions… and also adapt their behavior accordingly.  Described as “socially intelligent” and displaying a surprisingly breadth of “human-like behavior,” new studies have revealed more about the inner lives of horses.

Of course, us pony players always knew that ponies were clever, and that the bond between a pony and their handler is a special thing!

Next Week: LA PUP PRIDE!

Petplay Spotted in the Wild

Look around and you’ll find petplay in all sorts of places.

This marble statue portrays “Hermanubis:” a combination of the Egyptian god Anubis and the Greek god Hermes that was popular in Egypt during the Roman period. The palm fern meant to be in the right hand is missing.  Roman, Anzio. 1st to 2nd century AD.

Looking for something more contemporary?  How about Fox’s “The Masked Singer?”  Contestants are dressed up as various animals.  One in particular, “Rottweiler,” stood out to us because of his back-up dancers, who are sporting Mr. S-style puppy hoods.

Watch the full video of Rottweiler below:

#TBT: Ponies

As social media has grown, there are more and more ways for petplayers to connect and to look back on fond memories.

For example, remember The Races last year, at Ponies, Critters, and Kinksters?  This event took place in New Orleans; if you’re in the area, look up Ponies on the Delta for more info on local events!

Going even further back, take a look at these photos from Hawaii in 2016!
