#1 here again. The news from home remains good. I skyped with Ms. P yesterday and Tommy got all excited to hear my voice coming out of the computer! Bibi managed to lose his collar again, and the girls are generally being good.
At this end, today was Day 3 of the congress. It has been such fun to see all the horses and meet all the breeders. Let me start by introducing to you the grand champion stallion, North American Maid, known to his friends as "MOOSE"
In case you were wondering, he stands at 19 hands at the withers which is 1.93 metres, and he has a very sweet disposition
And this is the mares' grand champion. Her name is Blue Ribbon Farms' UNIQUE:
There has been so much excitement here that it's difficult to know which photos to share. The Priefert team of six-horses, either "ridden" or driven by Jason Goodman, was just amazing!
A beautiful mare from Wisconsin!
Patiently waiting for the six-horse hitch class:
I caught up with the friends I made in Nova Scotia in July. They were busy working with other breeders to clean harnesses!
And I also went shopping!
Last day of the Congress tomorrow, and then the French delegation will spend two days touring breeding farms around Iowa. Lots more fun in store!
