Claudia, Charlotte & I worked fast and furious to get the trailer packed up for our first show of the season!! We could not find the Thornridge drapes & banner -- somehow they had made their way to the house at the end of last season!! But, they made their trip to Morven ONLY for Chuck to give us a hard-time because we FORGOT THE RATS!!! So, this is what we have to say to Chuck!!! No fear, though, Andrew, Bambi & Newest Friend have become stow-aways in the trailer again and will be out, in full force, this 2013 season!!!!!
Photos and results of our first show have been updated on Face Book and the Current News section of this website! But, I really wanted to include this photograph, here! Here is, coming 4yo, Dressed To Kill, aka "Calvin" at his first show EVER. I was so excited to watch his great behavior in his first warm-up experience that I did not know, until later, that the black mare in the background is Wrosette!! Wrosette is Calvin's Mom's Full Sibling! The last time that Calvin and Wrosette were together was in 2009. That year, they competed together (Calvin was at Romy's side) at Dressage at Devon, for the Get of Sire Class representing the late Wallstreet Kid!!! HOW COOL is this photo, especially as it is Wrosette's first time to compete in performance classes for years and it marks Calvin's first ever performance show. Geeze -- all the stars certainly aligned at this moment in time!!!!
