Another fun day at the horse (duck) show!

Well, anyone who was at the Storybook Stables Horse Show this weekend knows where the duck reference came from--it RAINED!!! Not only was there thunder and lightning (and torrential downpours) on Friday night, but it started raining again as soon as we were ready for the outside classes. Everyone was soaked. We were all hiding under every available bit of shelter. But it was a lot of fun and, let's face it, this is PEI--if we didn't have the weather to complain about, what would we do?
Anyway, it was a fun time and we would like to say thank you to everyone that bought tickets for the raffle draw and the 50/50 draw. Look to see us at other venues around the island over the summer. Just a quick pic of our lovely ladies who volunteered to man (or woman!) the table and to harass, ummm, canvass (yeah, that's the word...) the crowd to drum up more ticket sales.

We have, from left to right, Bila, Jordann, Wylie and Bridget, who gave their Saturday morning sleep in to help the horses. Thank you, ladies and gentleman! You can also see on the table the prize for the raffle draw, draw day July 31st at Gingerwood. Starting from the bottom left, we have a burgundy suede-like saddle pad, summer riding gloves, a horse themed diary, a silver brooch shaped like a full cheek snaffle, a pair of socks which say 'Love riding, hate flying' (you know, the kind of flying that happens when you horse suddenly decides that there's a horse eating monster hidden behind that stump you've passed everyday for the past 6 months), the show cooler (beautiful forest green), a pink horse girl hat, horse treats, Show Sheen, and a really nice grooming box to keep your things in. There is a lovely little charm to go on your bridle, as well, though I can't seem to find it in the picture. Just a wonderful package of things and tickets are very reasonable: 1 for $2, 3 for $5. Remember, less than a month left to get your tickets!!

An update on Andy: after further consultation with the vet college, Andy's mom has decided that he would be better off if she donated him to the vet college. Not only will he receive the best of medical care, but he will have a very relaxed, lazy life where his main job will be to just look absolutely spectacular and hang out with a bunch of friends. Hmmm, where do you go to sign up for one of those jobs...?

Check out the website to see our newest potential adoptee: Yankee Star. I'll be blogging him later on this week, once I have all his information.

Well, I have to go squelch my way over to clean the barn. Have a great week and enjoy the sunshine!
