The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–September 2nd

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

I got back late last night from a horse show, and I’m totally exhausted.  I am so glad that it’s a holiday weekend so that I have another day to recover.  I always think I’m going to have some time to chill and read when I’m at a show, but it doesn’t usually work out that way.  There is a lot of running around at the fairgrounds, with many, many distractions, especially at the bigger shows.  There are all of the pretty, pretty horses, and almost against my will, I find myself sucked in to watching the classes or the warm-ups, even for the divisions I don’t really like.  And then there are all of the puppies and dogs people have brought to keep themselves company, and it’s animal overload.  It’s a lot of fun meeting new people and their pets at the shows.  My favorite new animal friend was a 3 year old Great Dane.  He was awesome because he was so well behaved, and because I didn’t even have to bend down to pet him! 

Elle had her best show yet, winning  Grand Champion Mare and getting the Reserve in her driving class.  It was raining during the performance class, so I didn’t get any pictures (again! every time the trainer drives her, we have a monsoon!)

This is Elle after her in-hand class, being modeled by my show buddy, Sarah. 

 

This is all of the stuff they shove into your arms after your horse wins a championship class.  Then you are supposed to run across the fairgrounds without dropping or breaking any of it, which would be bad, because there is horse poop everywhere.
