Horse Showing Frenzy!

Well, it's been awhile! Things have been busy at the barn lately....

First off, a big "Welcome!" to Boo and her owner Michelle. We have enjoyed getting to know Boo and her family and helping Boo in her re-hab as she increases her trotting. We are all excited to get her to the point where we can try out her canter! She is super cute and seems to be a great neighbor to Wally.

We've also been showing a lot here - we went to another Gold Creek show as well as The Bainbridge Island Classic and are currently up in Canada attending the Thunderbird horse show. Hopefully, if you weren't showing, you had a chance to come out and cheer your fellow Sundancers on while they were showing! Everyone has been quite successful - with Championships for Nicholas and Finesse at Bainbridge, Maia and Danika at GCEC and some fancy ribbons for Phalcon up in Thunderbird this last week. We've also had quite the string of Reserve Championships at Bainbridge for Phalcon, and at GCEC in several different divisions for Grace on Cookie, Ariel on Finesse and Erica on Wally - what a great show month everyone has had! Great Job Team!

Danika was also, with the help of Vera and Aidan, able to raise some money from her Bake Sale for Sinatra/Titan and, with the donation of a bridle from Sue (and the bit from Vera's bridle) we finally have a bridle for Titan! He has started his work on the line with that and we are hoping that Danika raised enough money to purchase a girth soon - and some sun block! Poor Guy - his nose is sensitive to the small amount of sun we have seen! But we are excited to finally get him working under saddle so he can find a permanent home - remember, if you know of someone looking for a horse he is available for adoption!!

We are excited for the 2nd week of Thunderbird starting this week and for the sun to make an appearance - might even be time to get out the fly masks....?
