and then the stall guards. having to present 12 hand ponies (121cm about) with 4 fot high stall doors to families with kids was a problem I wished to avoid. It took many phone calls and emails to find out what I could do. the facility management gave me permission to install eye bolts for stall guards, if I took them out when I left. it turned out well because, not only were the doors to high for ponies, but the even fronts were semi transparent mesh and even the tall horses were hard to see. in the rare breed barn, my ponies were visible. the american cream draft obtained a stall guard also.
nell had a good rest right after she arrived. pepper made a bedding mcflurry in her stall for two days, recived oral electrolyte paste to make her drink, and dropped from exhaustion on day 3.
the organizer was having trouble with obtaining show entries so I entered my helper and myself in the in-hand obstacle clinic and class. nell got 5th, pepper 6th. my helper decided not to take nell, so I took both. I think we lost points because I am too crippled to run and could not jump the last thing with the pony so we just stepped over it.
my phone takes terrible pics, but it was cheap and can only receive tests at home, the tower is too far away to support voice or data. why spend mega dollars for something that doesn't work most of the time?
we drove 4 demos. saturday they were way ahead of schedule and didn't keep us up to date. it was crazy, they were trying. i managed to get a pair harnessed and put to in under 1/2 hour while my helper wheeled out the carriage and headed the ponies.
I took few pictures. there was a pro photographer. I believe in supporting show photographers so that good photos continue to be available. they don't make a lot of money at shows. you will have to wait for the pro photos
