Since I forgot the camera none of the pictures from today can be posted. The decorations are pretty much what we have done in years past but this time we made a few modifications with the lights. We also used one of those HUGE 10 foot banners where we will be popping pop corn. Sarah took the picture below of Zion helping out at during the set up by being happy and smiling at all the activity around her.
Emily came today and worked with Valiant. She ended up riding him bareback since the saddles were packed in the trailer. He was so glad to get into the outdoor arena to run, buck and just have a ball that I'm sure a lot of the pictures were post worthy. Oh well there is always tomorrow.
As soon as I got back to the farm, the trailer was backed in place, unhooked and the truck taken down to Hanna City to fill it back up with gas. While unhooking the two horse and hooking up the 4 horse gooseneck, the coyotes were screaming and howling very near the place. It sounded like a hundred puppies screaming.
Rhoda and Sarah took some time before they left for home to go see the new covered arena at the fairgrounds and sent the pictures below:
We were pleased to see there are bleachers plus standing room. The arena is a good size, plenty of room for big groups of horses. The other plus this year is the round pen in the warm up arena between barn 13 and 14. I'm posting the schedule again, just in case you missed the last link. IF you are coming down to the fair make SURE to come to the new covered arena (pictured above) to watch the Horsemeister play this year. There are going to be cool presents thrown to the spectators, well to be perfectly honest some are not so cool, in-fact those are down right awful but all in good fun.
