Smithville fair hosted its first miniature show today, it was a great day and we all had so much fun!!
The show was very well run, everything went smoothly, the judge was John Wills and he did a great job. What a professional judge, who took the time to take a close look at everyone's horses and also to give encouragement to the youth.

My niece Rachel showed both of my boys today, this was her second show and she is hooked!!! Rachel, who is seven came home with a third in multi-color, second in solid, first in showmanship(12and under) and first in costume. She was alone in showmanship and her pattern was quite a sight, we really have to work on how to go in a straight line. When she was done her pattern she had to ask me over the rail what her number was(even though she was the only entry)
!! She was so proud of her ribbons, you can't wipe the smile off her face.
My sister-in-law took some pics of Rachel but I don't have them yet.

I had a great day too, my boys were grand and reserve geldings under. Kristin(MyLilShowGirl) showed my boy, Bud and was Grand with him and I showed my new gelding Steve and was reserve with him. I haven't haltered Bud this year since I chose to use Steve so he isn't nearly in halter shape(fat) but Kris won with him anyway!! I also was second in open halter obstacle(Bud) and won ladies driving(Steve).


We took 13 horses from our barn today so it got a bit hectic so not much chance to get pictures but here's one that Kris took quickly outside the showring. Bud is the solid and the pinto is Steve.

Way to go, CONGRATS to ALL who participated. Your horses look quite smart looking, and I am sure you are to blame
I am glad you had fun.

I think we need to have a look at the grooming shirt eh!!!

Congrats to all those who attended the Smithville mini show! Sorry we missed it. Isn't it great that there are so many shows in our area? And sometimes you've got two to chose from!! Hope to make it next year!

Sandy

Desiree, Devon was at the Smithville show but I'll let her tell you how Wee did.

I am trying to get rid of the weekend job- but have to keep stashing cash for the farm and then it will be stash the cash for the horsies and sooner or later I can quit and show on the weekends and have lots of fun with you guys-
until then I half to live through everyone else shows ups and downs.
It sounds like everyone had a good showing this weekend.

You guys were conspicuous by your absence at the Orangeville fair yesterday, since almost everyone was there! Glad you had such a good day! I hope somehow the dates won't clash next year so that we can all attend both fairs.

Hey Judy, we chose the show closer to home(gas prices) and of course we wanted to support Smithville fair so that hopefully they will continue to have a show for us!! Quite a good turnout especially considering there were three shows all on the same day and this being the first mini show for Smithville. There was even some new faces there!!
Unfortunately on more than one occasion this year we have show dates that conflict with each other. Like you, I would like to see these overlaps ironed out where possible so we can have large turnout at all of the shows!!

Oh no, I will get a picture of it!!!!
