This little guy was determined to do it because each child got a "prize" at the end of the course. His father was going to help him but he wanted nothing of it. The judge kept a close eye on him and guided the pony when it needed to be without letting on that the boy wasnt doing it all himself. He is so tiny and he did a great job.
This was his choice of prize at the end, complete joy and happiness LOL. These children are our future and it was so nice to see someone take the time to talk to the children in all of their classes, giving them advice and reasons for the decisions she made so that they could learn from it.
Taxes is doing really well, I managed to change his dressing today without too much drama, he is settling right down. It was dreadfully hot, in the 90s by 6pm this evening. I am still editing photos, will carry on tomorrow. I will also try to let Taxes have a bit of exercise tomorrow after I put all the horses in, I don't want a repeat performance so it is better to take the distractions away then he will have no reason to go through the fence.
Well my blogging buddies, I am off to bed, tomorrow is another day. We are expecting temps in the 90s for the next 5 days at least and everything is so dry. The pasture down the road is keeping the mares fat but unless we have more rain it will be turning into a dust bowl soon. The grass is very short now.
(((Hugs)))) Will catch up on a few more blogs and then turn in.
