TAFFY. The driving is going well. I have had a few spook incidents and managed to handle them without any problem! I took the costume out to try on Goldie and found a small problem with fit so I think I have that fixed now. I'll try it again in a couple of days. I need to try driving in my long skirt so I know how to handle it. That will be in a couple of days too.
I am very excited about the competitions. We are trying to make plans on how to get 2 carts and 2 horses to the fair. Fortunately the fairgrounds are only 15 miles away. Hubby will be staying at the fairgrounds on Thursday and Friday nights to be near the horses. ( we have an RV) and I'll be coming home to take care of the dogs each night. Friday morning is the costume contest and the over 50 open driving class that Hubby is in. Then the head to head contest is on at 6:30! I told him I was bringing home a blue ribbon and he could take the red or yellow, which ever.
However, Honey could be hard to beat. She is steady as a rock and has 10 years or more of cart under her harness.
I hope to have some good photos to post next weekend/
