Adult Division: Reserve Champion
Stock Type Division: Third Place
English Division: Sixth Place
Also, as a rider, I won a Ribbon of Outstanding Achievement which was based on all the points I received as a rider throughout the year.
We won a cooler seat for the adult division, a really nice grooming tote for stock type, and a nice bristle brush for the english division. The ribbons were also gorgeous!
I had ambitions of taking glorious pictures of Lilly with all her winnings so I could frame the picture, put it up in my office, and surround it with all her satin. They didn't turn out quite as I'd hoped, though.
We had the beautiful blue skies I was looking for, but we also had a ton of wind. Trying to find a place to hang the ribbons that was in the sunshine, but not in the direct path of gale force wind was tricky, especially since I was by myself. I wanted a picture of all her day awards, a picture of her year end awards, and a picture of everything. Sadly, these are the best I got:
|Day awards for the year!|
|Year end awards for the year!|
|All of our awards for the year!|
If the ribbons looked good, she had her eyes closed. If she actually looked at the camera, the ribbons were blowing too much to see what they were. Here are a couple outtakes for you to enjoy!
