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!!!!

The Fair has been on my mind so much lately..we've had fall like weather here in Vermont which makes me long for our county fairs.

Congrat's on winning so many awards and I know from my nephews...and my days in 4H...winning showmanship is a biggy!!!

Have a wonderful day,
Doreen
