Our latest show...

We got to the show grounds on Friday and unloaded the trailers, set up the tack stall, got the horses all cozy and then decided to lunge so we could school....

Took Ri down to the ring and lunged beautifully for a minute... and then exploded into a huge bucking spree and of course... tweaked something...

Took Gimpy back to the stall, called the vet who said "give him bute and call me in the morning..." Had husband bring the bute and then put the boy to bed...

Next morning got to the show grounds at about 6:30 but... still too gimpy to ride so I walked my "puppy" all around the show grounds for the day....

Next morning he was better! Put him in halter but since he was so gimpy the day before I didn't want to push my luck so we stopped w/ our halter classes. Had a blast at the show anyway. Watched all my friends ride...

Next show will be better!

What a gorgeous horse!

Beautiful boy!

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Lovely pictures!!!

And might I add I'm slightly jealous of how good you look in pink. I love the shade, but it looks hideous on me.

LMAO! I have always been a "Tom boy" but it seems the older I get... the girlier I get.

We haven't done halter since Riley was a baby. The halter barely fit! I was excited when we placed 2nd... behind "Arnold Schwarzenhorse"...

Wow, that other horse is a CHUNK! Your boy is lovely, FP :)
And isn't it like them to always hurt themselves before a show? Can't tell you how many times it's happened to me... darn Murphy and his laws...

You both look great farmpony! I think your boy is quite handsome! I'd pick him over ol' Arnold any day. Today's muscle bound halter horses are not my cup of tea.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
