Dd and dp already off to the yard - me in mid picnic manufacture. Ready for a day of intermidable boredom interspersed with brief moments of huge excitement, terror and tears!

Bless! You have that exactly right! Grin when we started loads of relatives used to turn up to watch. They soon lost interest after the first four hours standing about! Confused I used to hate showing, mainly because DD was LR. Its better now. I told her I wasn't LRing anymore after I slipped in a cowpat in the ring and fell over in front of everyone! She's on her own now and I just get to watch and bite my nails! Grin

Next is June 5th. Yes, she did well considering she was a very rough, bony impulse buy a year ago!

Dd still outraged by the Prettiest Mare placing!
