There SHOULD be long-winded details here from our first show together.

There SHOULD be way too many pictures and video for any one human to look at in a single sitting.

There SHOULD be an array of ribbons, brightly colored prizes and glowing commentary.

Instead, there's just this:

Okay, okay. I'll spoil you with this too...keep in mind though, in Canada, red is 1st, blue is 2nd, white is 3rd.

And for some reason, I'm probably *most* proud of our white one. And maybe that red...and the blue with the three streamers...and that other blue... ; )

The story will come...once I've had some time to recover! And a free moment or two! And the video camera/camera back from my folks! : ) All in all, VERY proud of Mr. Moon (despite a few rough moments), very happy with our show, beyond amazed by how awesome both friends and strangers are, have an awesome family, great coach and really, really want to do this again. With many, many lessons learned.

That will wait for tomorrow. Today, we celebrate Mom's Day with a mom who brings a bucket and jug of water along to watch her daughter's horse show, *just* in case her pony is thirsty. (Even more special since my mom isn't a horse-person!).

Today, I also feel like a hung-over, sunburned, exhausted 83 year old after an attack by King Kong. But that's just me.


  1. Oh my goodness! Mr Moon is a saint! My girl would have been in the next county and headed for Maine if I tried to dress her up like that. Amazing costume!

    Can't wait to hear the story of the ribbons. Sounds like you're proud of them all, but I totally get being most proud of the third. I had a fourth that was my favorite for years and years. It was won in the biggest class at the biggest show I'd attended at that point. And it was in equitation, so that was *me* they liked so much! Loved that thing. Even though it was actually super ugly lol.

  2. Oh. My. God. The car turned out AWESOME! I can't wait to read the rest!

  3. OMG!!! Congrats! So happy for you and Moon, can't wait to hear the full story.
    btw - that car is AWESOME

  4. Woot woot! Look at all those ribbons!! I knew you guys would be great :)

  5. LOVE the costume! Like everyone else, I can't wait to hear all about it!!!

  6. Moon the Race Car! OMG he's so adorable!!!
