Karma's First Fair

Monday, August 11, 2008

We took Karma to the fair for the first time. He was wonderful! I was so proud of him.

He and my daughter earned a blue ribbon in showmanship. A white in walk/trot hormanship for 4H.

After all day of begging my daughter to game him...she did, and in both events he placed 3rd. One he would have been 1st, but the ball bounced out of the bucket, so they gave her 5 more seconds. My daughter just cried with pride after the first big yellow ribbon was handed to her...All she could say was..."I'm so proud of you my Karma boy!!" THEN..."next year we will compete in all of them!" lol! SHE'S HOOKED!

My honey is building our barn as we speak. Life is good!

They placed 6th in costume. I put a pic in my spark page. He's a cute white-tail deer. lol!

    That is awesome!

    I love costume classes. I am hoping to take my boy into one but just need to think of a funny costume.

    Hi, i just was looking again at your picture with this blog and noticed that the chain is over his nose. For Showmanship, the chain should be underneath. Maybe this was just outside of the arena, and not how it was adjusted for the class...
    Just thought i'd give you a pointer.

    Congratulations to you at your first (of many) days at the fair! My daughter showed the 4-H county fair for at least 6 years and had a blast. Many shows were rainy but the kids still had fun. It looks like yours was a perfect day!

    I've even helped at the county fairs for 5 years after she was too old to show (she was also away at college). This is the first year that i missed because we had a foreign exchange student visiting from Japan. It's been 34 years since he first came to stay at my parents... It's very interesting to learn of their culture.

    The State 4-H Horse Show is in September, and i'll more-than- likely go and watch the kids show and support our county. It's held at the MN St. Fairgrounds which is only an hour away.
