It's Show Time

I apologise for the blog being a bit neglected but in our neck of the woods our Agricultural Shows are up and running.  Our home town show has just been held and our family is very involved.  This year we had both of the grils horses at the show so their was a lot of preparation for that.  My husband Woodchops, this is his first chop for two years.  In 2008 he had a fall off one of his horses while mustering and damaged his AC Joint (in his shoulder), and then in 2009 a young horse he was riding fell and rolled ontop of him and broke his leg quite badly.  His orthopedic surgeon actually told him that if he was a horse he would put him down!  So when it came time for the muster this year I practically wrapped him in cotton wool.  At the show I usually just run around like a chook with it's head cut off.  I tried to take some photos of our show but we have a funny saying in our family that goes 'If you want to see an Ag Show you have to go somewhere else to see it'. My husband and I are off on Thursday to another show to Judge their Miss Showgirl Competition so I am looking forward to that.  Hopefully I will get a few more pictures at the last few shows to show you what a country show looks like.
This is Miss S's very mischeivious pony.  He is only small but thinks he is a big horse, he has a lot of personality.

This is Miss M and her beautiful horse Honey waiting for their class.  She is the most sweetest and kindest horse.  Honey is 24 yrs old but looks much younger. (that is OLD for a horse)

This everyone who helps out at the cattle show/sale at our show.  This is the afternoon after the judging.  The sale is always held the next day.

This is the very beaustiful mare who won Champion Hack at the show.  She missed out on Supreme Hack of the show.  I would have picked her as Supreme but that is showing for you, you never know what the judges are going to like.

This is a friend of ours at the woodchop.  I didn't get any pictures of my husband woodchopping but I will at the next show, we are going without the kids so I will get to check out everything.
