LOL, I kinda forgot how much fun the small showing shows are!
Yes, little Shotgun isn't so "little" anymore. The other week when I had them at the farrier's place, they were standing on perfectly level ground inside his shop. And Red and Shotgun were the exact same height. So that means Shotgun is 15.1 hands at the age of 2 1/2. And he's not exactly a scrawny thin 2-yr-old either. He is going to be a tall thick beast when he's all grown up!
I was so awed by Red's flying lead changes. Granted, I have not been working with him lately to do them the correct way. We did more of the "4H style" of flying lead change at the show where you neck rein them over and hope they change, haha. But he did it!
Even though our barrels were horribly crummy (MY fault once again) he did however finally change his lead for the second barrel for the first time ever on his own. So I consider that a huge accomplishment!
I was gonna band up their manes for the show to make 'em look at pretty but I ran out of time. Took forever to wash and whiten 6 legs between the two of them!

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.
