On saturday I have one of the biggest shows of my season, The derbyshire Festival of showing. It is a 2 day show with huge qualifiers and even bigger classes (HOYS CHAPS N/C/TP classs has 47 entries).
I started preparing for this show a couple of weeks ago, I was getting the lorry ready when I found it was leaking water, not massive amounts but it was doing so. Off to the garage it went, mechanic tut tutted and said it was a leak in the water pump. Promptly ordered spare parts, however said spare parts have not yet arrived so whilst lorry is useable I am going to have to keep topping up the water on it every hour or so.
Then yesterday mum put her foot down a grid an snapped her ankle, bye bye goes my groom/helping hand/photographer. Poor mum is in lots of pain and will deffinatly NOT up for going to show let alone a 2 day show.
When doing entries I was debating between the SHP inhands and the WPBr inhands, finaly chose the WPBr class. I saw entry numbers a couple of days ago and discovered that there are 13 in the WPBR class and 3 in the SHP class!
Arrggg this show is prooving to be a nightmare, non of my prep is going right.
