Yesterday was day one of SNEWRU aka OF performance day. I know there was halter stuff too but honestly I didn't even look at the class list. Since it is currently just after 6:00 and I had to set the clocks ahead last night, this will be a short post.
Liesl came to the show yesterday, which was fantastic, it's been awhile. During the set-up of the showmanship class Larry asked us to tweak things. The chain on that halter needed to be shortened so the tools came out. What better time to do tack alterations than when the entry is on the show table?
This picture could have been even more typical of a lot of performance entries if someone else had taken it. All 3 of us were fiddling, tweaking and adjusting things. Sometimes it takes a village. I really wish I had the win photo to go with this group. The first place ribbon would have make it even better.
Speaking of ribbons, Hugh Can Do It got 5th in the NaMoPaiMo class! If I counted correctly (I think I did...) there were 10 horses in the class. I have never been so thrilled with a 5th place ribbon in my life. The way we do the NaMoPaiMo class at SNEWRU is by vote. So a bunch of people voted for Hugh as one of their favorites! I am super thrilled to have gotten any votes at all.
