Hi Stacey,  I know it’s been a few weeks since our party, but I just wanted to thank you to you and your team again for making our daughter Charlotte's birthday party such a fun and special day! Even with the rain, all the kids had so much fun with the animals and the mini petting zoo with a few extras was perfect since we had to move them into the barn. Please pass along my gratitude to your staff! We are so thankful and will definitely recommend you in the future.  Happy Thanksgiving, Katie S 11/25/15

Hi Stacey,
I wanted to thank you so much for coming to my son Arjan's birthday party.  It was an amazing experience, and both children and adults had a wonderful time.  The pony and other animals were so fun and well cared for, and it was so much more than I expected.  My son loved the pony ride, and talks about it every day.  I am so thankful to you and your team for making the party so memorable and a great time for all.  I didn't think the little kids would be able to ride, but they were handled so well.  It was evident that there is a lot of experience dealing with small children.  I didn't get a chance to do so at the party, but how can I send a tip?  Can I do this via Paypal?  I am very grateful for the whole pony party experience. thank you, Chandan  8/22/13

Hi, Stacey,
 I wanted to Thank You and your wonderful crew for such a great experience!!!  My daughter and her friends had the best time on Saturday - they loved Napolean and all the zoo animals (thank you for including the 2 piglets!), and your crew was just fantastic.  Jessie was so patient and sweet with the girls on the pony, and the cowboy (didn't get his name) was very friendly and helpful with the animals and all the girls.  The parents loved the idea, and were equally entertained.  
 Absolutely could not have asked for a better birthday for our daughter - she is still talking about it, and went to bed that night with her stuffed pony and the biggest smile on her face! Thank you, again, for all your help and professionalism in planning our event.  It certainly will be a birthday that we won’t soon forget! Best Wishes, Victoria  8/19/13

Stacey, Just wanted to Thank you!  My daughter loved the unicorns!  Your company was very professional!  The gentleman and the woman that was here were both fantastic!  They arrived 10 minutes early and were set up to go right on schedule.  No complaints from me, just happy memories!!!!!!! Thanks again to you and your crew! Sincerely, Rhonda B  6/26/13

That was so much fun today! Our children and guest had a great time with the animals! Your husband did an amazing job with the kids!  The children and parents all loved your patience! I hope the kids were ok for you…I want to apologize for not getting you some food, I was on the go! It was so wonderful ! Thank you! Kuldip K 5/5/13

Hi Stacey, I just wanted to write to thank you and Tracy (and team!) for making Saturday so special for Samantha.  Your animals were so cute and amazing and the children really LOVED them.  I’ve been hearing from so many people how special it was for their kids. Thank you for running such an excellent business and for helping me at the last minute! Christina  4/23/13

Hi Stacey! First off, Talon and I would like to say, we LOVED meeting Napoleon and Bernie!!!!!  They were so darling and well mannered! 
   Today when I took Talon to the Dr. she said her hips  looked better then the last visit. I told her about the pony riding, she said Talon needs to do that more often. If you ever have a pony that needs to slow down or retire, PLEASE let us know!!!! I asked Roger to keep his eye open as well, although I know he is busy with moving. The pony would only be used for walking with talon on their back and as a bestie! :-) thank you again for making Talon's party so special! Can you imagine going from wheelchair to pony? § I will send you a pic. Kathy  4/16/13

Stacey, I meant to send you an e-mail sooner. Thank you so much for making my son's cowboy party a big success. The kids loved the ponies and the animals. The birthday boy is still talking about his cowboy party. He wants another cowboy party next year :) Your staff arrived early, they were very professional, great with the kids. The parents were able to take lots of pictures with their kids on the ponies. All the kids were able to ride to their hearts content. I was very pleased with everything. I will definitely recommend you guys to friends and family. Thanks again, Siobhan  3/12/13

Jessi and Sam were terrific. Please give them a huge thank you from us. Anna’s party was a huge success. Caitlin  3/9/13

Hi Stacey, I'd like to say Thank You to you, your team and the ponies. All the girls had fun riding; it's just amazing! Again, thank you! Chang L 1/19/13

Thank you so much for your participation in Saint Mary's College's Gaelebration! We had somewhere between 5,000-7,000 people on campus for the day, and your team had a steady stream of participants that they handled extremely well. I have heard nothing but positive experiences from event goers about the Tickle Me Pony portion of the day.

I cannot thank you and your team enough for your help and professionalism. I hope they got to enjoy parts of the events on campus as well.

We will absolutely keep you in mind for future events! It was wonderful working with you.

Thank you again. It would not have been the same without Tickle Me Pony there! --  Molly M  10/9/12

Hi Stacey, The pony and mini zoo were a hit!  Thank you!  We were very happy with everything!!!  Your workers were wonderful and everything went well!!!!  Thanks, Wendy  10/7/12

Stacey - I have got to write and tell you how much fun we had yesterday with (naked) Pixie.  Elsa was so delighted to see her turn up (and it occurred to me that I had to make clear we were not giving her a pony, we were just borrowing a pony!) - her face was a picture!  What a lovely pony Pixie is -  Also, wanted to comment that Tracey and Jeremy were absolutely wonderful - with us, and the children!  They do your business no end of good.  So thank  you..  We also talked about a couple of chickens we have that the guys thought may be roosters...they said you might be interested in taking them off our hands, if indeed they do turn out to be roosters.  Lovely though they are, the city of Lafayette does not allow them!  I will be in touch if that is the case. So, many thanks again - I will be sure to recommend Tickle Me to anyone interested in a similar party. Elsa and I so wish we could have a pony of our own (it made me very nostalgic for my own childhood!) Lulu  8/25/12

Hi Stacey,  I wanted to write and say Thank You so much for sending such a great petting zoo Sunday!  Everyone loved it and your guys were top-notch!  They were efficient, friendly, they delt with the weird inside situation well and they left it all so clean when we were done.  I will certainly be emailing you again when we are in need of another petting zoo or ponies.
Thank you again! Liz  6/25/12

I just wanted to say a HUGE Thank You!!!!! The guys you sent out to handle Hunter's 2nd birthday were perfect! They were more than on-time; respectful and so very clean! One gentleman even asked if Hunter wanted one more pony ride prior to packing it all up....they went the extra mile! The smile and facial expressions my son had during the hour petting zoo an pony ride was PRICELESS and worth every penny!!!! He just loved it, as did all the other children. I will definitely be booking your services again for...something...anything!
I really appreciate you working with me on the 'no chicken thing too'!
Thanks again for helping make my sons 2nd birthday such a success!…even in the RAIN :) Morgan  3/27/12

Hi there Stacey.......THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH........YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!  Linda V  2/24/12

Hi Stacey,  I wanted to let you know how pleased we were the the mini zoo and pony ride.  I was hoping to meet you and I was told that you run a very busy business. That great! You have very friendly and helpful staff! Your animals and Napoleon the pony are so adorable! The children enjoyed themselves and the party was a hit; kids did not want to leave! Success!!
 I've attached a picture of the birthday baby boy (1 year old Ronen) with us- the family! Ronen was scared of the pony, but very curious.
 Thank you so much! Warm Regards, Ritchel E 2/16/12

Hello Stacey, I just wanted to send a note to tell you how much we enjoyed Bernie and Tracy!!  My daughter, Cailyn's, birthday was this past Saturday and it was absolutely incredible!  I must say, I am not a fan of giving children's birthday parties but I was so happy during this one.  Your employee, Tracy was very, very sweet and worked so hard to make sure all of the kids felt safe and enjoyed themselves!  And Bernie of course, was a huge hit and had Very Good behavior.  What a good Boy!!  Not to mention how handsome he looked that day too!! Thank you so much! Annie B 2/13/12

Hi Stacey - I just wanted to thank you for your services!  Everything was great!  The bunnies were a surprise and such a treat for the kids and adults alike.  We will definitely recommend you to all our friends and family and maybe we'll see you in the future for little Noah!  Take care, Amy W  1/16/12

HI Stacy I just wanted to write and tell you how wonderful your petting zoo with Donkey was for our “Angel Breakfast" event on Saturday.
The children really loved being able to brush the donkey and the sheep & goats were a hit!
Your staff was very friendly and helped our families enjoy a wonderful morning. We appreciated that you brought hand sanitizer, too. Thank you again for a job well done!  I did not get a chance to say goodbye to your crew since we have a tight schedule to follow and I was inside when they packed up but I wanted to let you know that all went well and I had  lots of great feedback!  MM 12/5/11

Thank you for yesterday! My kids and their guests had a great time and Christine was wonderful! - Summer G 11/14/11

Sincerely, Rachel B  9/3/11

We had an absolutely lovely time.   Bella enjoyed her very long ride on Acorn and our whole family really enjoyed all the other critters too..especially the baby pigs.  I even got to bring home some feathers.  Tracy was a wonderful guide and so good with Bella who is only 4 1/2. Bella was so proud riding Acorn like a big girl, especially since Acorn seems like a really big horse to her.  It was the perfect Mooka Diva experience.  We hope to use Tickle Me for future events.  It was FABULOUS!!  Glee W  9/11/11

Thank you guys very much for the ponies..
My daughter was scared after the white pony sneezed and did not want to ride..

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your beautiful animals and your lovely staff. It was actually more than I imagined it would be and the petting zoo alone was amazing, and then the pony rides just made it so special for everyone there. Sorry I didn't get to really say goodbye, but I just wanted to thank you so much.  One of the moms asked me to send your information, so that she can have you come to her daughter’s party in August! Thank you, thank you!  Katy C 4/2/11

Hi Stacey,
So I just can't express in words how amazing my daughter's birthday party was! The animals were all so wonderful, the children just couldn't get enough! Your staff was so friendly and patient with both children and parents ! Everyone kept saying that it was the best party they had ever been to and the parents are still calling me telling me their children can't stop talking about it! As for the birthday girl, lets just say she is in permanent cowgirl mode lol! I want to thank you for all your reassuring during the weeks before the party and for making my daughter's birthday one she will never forget! I also coordinate a preschool playgroup and we are all in agreement that we need to have you guys out again for one of our get togethers. I’ll be in touch soon! Thanks again, Gisele  3/29/11

Thanks again. Alfred A 3/17/11

*Dear Stacey, I wanted to write to thank you for bringing all your wonderful farm animals to our Cub Scout Meeting last Wednesday.
Jacy is a natural public speaker!  It isn't easy to grab the attention of 80 Cub Scouts and 50 parents, but Jacy did it! I think that what made the boys listen so well, was that Jacy
seemed to know everything about all the animals, and she certainly was able to answer all the questions,
even though they ranged from why chickens have feathers on their feet to the genetics of breeding ducks with crests ontheir heads!
She patiently answered all the questions and then helped us set the scene to take photos with the goat and pot bellied pig (my favorite!).
Thank you so much for giving us such an entertaining and informative evening.
I will certainly recommend Jacy and Tickle Me Pony Parties to my friends in future.   Thank you, Allison  10/24/07 

*Stacey,  Just a quick note to say THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!,
That was the best party I've ever had hands down  .  The kids loved it. One of he kids left and then made mom bring him back.  
My twin nephew didn't want to leave.  The party was to end and 4p.m. it lasted til 8:30p.m. I've been telling everyone.  I also wondered if you had cards people are asking.  
I think I have a booking for you but it's for Easter.  L. M. is the lady name one of my patients. I'm looking forward to next year.  Call me. Thanks again!!!!  Maurne'  S.  11/3/07

Hi Stacey- Thank you so much for helping us out at the last minute with our living Nativity!  It was really great doing business with you.  Everything went very well and it was so nice to have the animals there and on time each night.  I really enjoyed getting to know Tracy and the helpers she brought along.  She was great and so easy to work with.  I felt like I had made a new friend!  Carol D.  12/27/05

Dear Stacey-I just had to write right away to let you know what an amazing day we had yesterday. First off, you have the best employee ever, in Don. His experience with the animals and patience with the children was tops. The care given to each animal was touching.  His attention to keeping the pen clean, no easy task, but every aspect of his responsibilities was handled with skill. Next, THE ANIMALS! They are truly special. I felt like each was a member of your family. and finally, our children, parents and faculty were in awe with these beautiful creatures. We would love to incorporate your petting zoo and our pumpkin patch every year. Again, thank you for providing a wonderful learning experience for our school.

Dear Stacey-Thank you so much for making our kids’ birthday party a wonderful success! 
The ponies were beautiful and each of the kids got to ride at least twice. 
The petting zoo animals were great and were a BIG hit with kids and parents alike. 
Many thanks to Julie and the girls who were so nice and took great care with everyone. 
So many moms commented on what a great party it was, but the credit goes all to you!  Thanks again!  D. Horne and A. Jasper  4/04 

Dear Stacey, I want to thank you for sending Mikki, Liz and Sierra to my  daughter’s birthday party April 4.
  Everyone said what a great party it was and Kasandra is still talking about it. 
Mikki, Liz and Sierra did a great job and were very patient with the kids.  Please tell them thank you.  Sincerely, L. Lassagne  4/04 

Hi Stacey...Thought it was time to email you and give a BIG THANK YOU!!!! For letting us visit your farm. 
Ms. Madison loved mr goose.  She thought he was really noisy and loved him out of all the animals you have. 
I must give you the biggest compliment on how very clean and neat everything was. 
Believe me, I have seen zoos that don’t look as nice a place you live at. 
Both my daughter and I were very impressed with your thoughtfulness with everyone including the animals. 
Thank you for sharing your beautiful farm with us!  H. Fernandes  2/03 

Hi Stacey- Thank you for the wonderful petting zoo.  The animals were so tame and not aggressive. 
The kids truly enjoyed themselves (and so did the adults).  Quinn’s favorite animal was the white bunny with the pink eyes. 
Kathy was also very tame :)  she was really nice and friendly and set everything up without a hitch.  We enjoyed meeting her. 
I will be certain to refer your pony parties to any parent who may be interested.  We had a wonderful time.  Fondly, Maureen  4/03 

Thanks for a great party!!  Julie and Pilgrim were wonderful and Joe can’t stop talking about it!  Jen 8/04 

Thank you and your staff for an excellent time!  The ponies were festive and our crew really enjoyed the petting zoo
...except for one niece that lost an earring to a chicken!!  It will be a great story for her to tell. 
It is so terrific to have the primary activity of a party be managed by professionals who showed up on time, with fun for the kids in mind. 
Thanx again, Kirstin  2/05 

Stacey—I just wanted to say thank you for a GREAT petting zoo party for my 7 year old’s bday party. 
Several parents asked how I found you so of course , I gave them your web address. 
Thank you, the animals were all wonderfully gentle and the pot belly piglet and miniature horse were the favorites.  Catherine  8/05

Stacey,  I just want to share with you what a great time we had with your animals and staff on Sunday. 
I must say people are still talking about what a great time they had and sending emails with their favorite moments. 
I am very thankful for your professional staff that had fun with the kids and adults too. 
YOU GUYS ROCK!  I will be referring you for many years to come.  M. Green  8/05
