Firstly, last night's raffle models were as follows (from Blab):
My Kind of Town
Glossy Perlino Quelle Surprise
So, I don't feel as bad about missing yesterday, although I wouldn't mind getting a Tortuga or glossy perlino. Oh well!
Cross country at Fair Hill was quite fun - we saw lots of horses, walked most of the course, and saw both Philip Dutton and Buck Davidson in action, which was pretty cool. All photos by me:
We were bemused by the sight of the "craft" beer tent with a Bud Lite truck parked next to it:
We didn't go inside, so I can't testify as to how crafty the beers were.
Lastly, I was amused by the "corn sandbox" they had in the kids' play area. I've probably seen similar things before, but it amused me for some reason. Definitely less messy than a sandbox, for sure:
I'd totally play in that if I were still 5 years old.
So, that's a quick recap of how our day went. Apparently a mockup of this year's JAH is floating around out there, featuring a photo of a mostly-white Hermosa (portrait of a real horse and RR for 2017), but I don't have a photo I can use, so that will have to wait until later. I'll update later with the centerpiece raffle model and other fun stuff!
