    I was looking through pictures on my computer and came across some "horsey" ones and I figured with all the "horse-news" going around from showing to foaling, I decided I'd post some. I apologize if I have already shown a few of these...

    ^^^ Me on Gabbro (RPSI Stallion) showing Hunter EQ/OF

    ^^^ new baby at a friend's barn...I thought the angle of the picture was interesting

    A few tags from a Jumper show MC and I competed in a season or two ago:
    (sorry...they are a bit blurry - really crappy digital camera = slow shutter speed :-/ )

    ^^^ we must have been going really fast in the jump off, lol - she pulled a shoe (good thing it was at the end of the competition)

    ^^^ a friend of mine showing MC in a Showmanship reining pattern (they were just warming up in this pic)

    Randoms of our guys:

    Quote:It's called a "fly bonnet." Originally, they use to (some still do) have tassels fringing it which would help shake flies out of the horse's eyes, face, and protect their ears; however, they are now used more as a decorative piece for Show Jumping events and some people who have a spooky horse will even stuff cotton balls in their horses ears - the bonnet also helps keep those from falling out.



    Thank you everyone for the comments... if anyone has pictures they would like to add, please feel free to do so. [​IMG]
