    Smile My filly's First Hunter Breeding Show

    I am so excited!! I got to go watch my filly I bred at her first Hunter Breeding show. I am proud at how she took everything in. She walked off the trailer and never batted an eye. She got there late and I had to pull and braid her in an hour and a half. I wasn't thrilled to have to rush with her. Long story short she fell asleep through the whole process. I didn't even get to braid her tail, as I was barely finishing her forelock as she was being called to the ring. She was great. Even left the 3 year old that they brought with her. She was such a good girl. It was so nice to see her new mom taking her out and I was happy to get to be a part of it. So here are a few pics I took.

    She looks FABULOUS! What a pretty set of socks she's got, and a kind eye. Looks like she couldn't be bothered with any of it. And I think your braiding job looks fine--I took my filly along with me to a show today for a practice run, got pinched for time and did three lovely sets of braids for other people--and ended up with 10 lumpy dressage button braids that 'had to do' for my filly--and her neck NEEDED the 'tiny braid advantage' hahaha. Congrats to you-- must be so rewarding to see the 'fruits of your labor' pay off!

    Thanks. It was very exciting to see her. In fact it was the first time I have seen her since she was sold. It was nice to see how happy she is with her new mommy. It feels good when they go to a great home!! Now If I can just make it through the next couple of weeks until my mare foals I will be all set!!

    Many Congrats on a lovely foal!

    What is her breeding?

    And, are you back in town????? I see your location has changed back to SP -- we must get together!
    I have talked Maggie into running for President. She will be running on the Curly Haired Dog ticket. Her campaign slogan is "Don't be douchy or I'll pee on your carpet".

    Thanks. She is by Escapade out of my TB mare DoUThinUCanDance. I just repeated the cross and find out next week if she is in foal. Finger Crossed!! We are still in the SP area. We love it here. I would love to get together. That would be so much fun.

    Thanks!! I am kicking myself in the butt for not breeding her last year. I thought we were going to use her for my daughter to show, but we ended up buying her a new instead. Fingers crossed!!
