Just came back from the Area V Nationals today. It was at an Arena in Lufkin, right next to a zoo. So amid the nickerings and neighing of the horses and ponies came the sound of yelling peacocks. The Lone Star Pony Club brought fresh watermelon for everyone and on Saturday night a free Mexican dinner was catered paid for by some farm.
Also Saturday night there was a dunking booth and they set Belinda Bagby up and she went under.
Larry Parnell brought his driving horses and ponies who are all gorgeous!
And the Taylor Pony farm from Ohio had a beautiful pony in a viceroy who stepped so high it was more like entertainment since they were they only one in the ring.


And I am very proud of my boy Bodaous who placed 2nd in Amatuer Halter Obstacle and 1st in Open Halter Obstacle. And Captain drove for the first time in the show ring quite well.

The Taylor's have awesome driving horses. They had some at the Area 2 show, always great to watch them.

Belinda was an excellent sport considering she really could have gotten out of being dunked!! And the water was cold!
I also wanted to say that Pete got dunked, too. There are pictures out there so I'm sure we will be seeing some on here soon.

I would also like to thank Cherryville Farms, John and his lovely wife, for giving out the nice bags. My horse papers fit nicely in there
Keeps my notebook from spilling out.

We took time out to visit the zoo that was next door and it was nice.

Great show!!!!!!
