Horse Show

Shayla will be competing in two, possible three, horse shows this summer. Today was the first one. She had a ball. I was surprised what a difference one more year of weekly horse lessons did for her. She won a ribbon in eight of the nine contests she entered and was thrilled to win her first trophy too. I'm assuming she'll put it right beside Christi's.

I'm not sure who is more surprised with the judge's decision; Shayla or grandma Nonee (far left)
Her first trophy - for Showmanship
First Place - English
She didn't make Horse Princess or Runner Up for the fair, but she won FLY SPRAY! YES!!

Much to my shock, at the end of the day I recognized Chessie and the sweet gal Christi took some of her first horse lessons with in the summer of 2005 - soon after we knew things were going to get ugly as her disease was beginning to take off again. I went and talked with the gal. Her mom said, "Christi had a lot of fun on Chessie." I remember, how could you forget that sweet Chessie's face?! She's a beauty!

I like that the orb in Christi's picture looks like a halo!

Shayla, my godness, you have grown a lot.

Wish you a happy week.

Angela, a little request do you have any pictures with Christi with horses?
