Todays episode- the Dog Walk (which will likely be a returning episode)
Usually on our walks you see this if you look down:
And this if you look up:
We walk at the Greene County Fairgrounds. On a normal day we'll see some horses, cats and an occasional groundhog. When the flea market is in full swing (Tuesday and Saturday mornings) there will be a plethora of knick-knacky junk and Bonnie the dog that occasionally antagonizes Liza (though that girl-o-mine has learned Bonnie's on a leash and her owner lost a few customers last week when he paid more attention to trying to rile Liza than selling his baskets)
This weekend there appears to be a dressage competition at the fairgrounds. The good news is that the camera was in the car. The bad news is that my Kinnearing skills are limited and blurry at best.
Standard dressage fare is easily recognizable. Once you see it you say "oh.. that's what that's called."
More than one rider had a 1940's gangster look to their outfits
this is the one picture that really disappointed me- that horse was gorgeous
and then there is the guy going for the "Columbo" look. At first I thought maybe he was a judge but the contestant number on his back suggests otherwise. Given the weather we've been having he was most appropriately dressed.
We have four more days with kids and then four more days with just teachers and then summer 2011 begins.... stay tuned.
