It really was a great party and I was tuckered out at the end of it!
But we didn't get much of a rest as we were all on duty the next day at the big Percheron horse event that was held at the Manoir de Courboyer. I helped at the Percheron Horse Society stand, as I always do. Here I am with our friend Ms.L:
And in my supervisory capacity:
Last time we went to such an event, there were a few people who were disappointed not to se photos of horses, so we have some for you today.
First of all, there was an amazing man there, Roland Bossard, who trains Percherons for shows. He came on dressed as for the Venetian Carnaval, riding bareback on his beautiful white horse:
and then he removed the reins, so that the horse responded only to voice and knees:
It was absolutely magical!
There were also lots of Percherons there who were being utilised in more traditional ways.
It was a beautiful day and fun to be outside!
