Its COUNTY FAIR week!!!
Today was the biggie...what we have been waiting for since starting the 4h program this winter-County Fair. It was time for Riley and Pippy to shine and shine they did!!! Aside from winning two seconds and a third my dynamic duo won SHOWMANSHIP!!!! Showmanship is based soley on your ability to show your horse to the judge...you have to complete a pattern of maneuvers all the while presenting your animal at its best...this is a class she had not yet won-til today!!! In the fall at the awards ceremony she will be presented with a big belt buckle for her win!!! I could not be more proud..
Pippy met a new friend at the Fair today...Here she is meeting a 2000 lb PERCHERON named Charlie! The lady assured me it would be safe for Pippy to stand near him. I told her Charlie might be a nice fella but 35 inch tall Pippy would kick the snot outta him!!!!
