We are well into fair season here, with the big ones wrapping up in the next month or so. This past weekend was one of our local fall fairs that I had two volunteer commitments to finish up.
My friend is a judge, so I often tag along with her to the western shows at the fairs. I think I've been to most in a 2-3 hour radius from here, just to see what they are like. This year, I was her ring steward as a favour to her. I got into the fair for free, so that is a bonus.
|These two percherons were close to our ring and kept geting excited every time another horse went by. |
Luckily none of the riding horses spooked!
I'm very burnt out from volunteering on the boards of these local show clubs. It is such a drain on time and resources, especially if you work full time and, oh, I don't know, want to ride and show your own horse! And don't get me started on politics and people not pulling their weight!
The other good news? Mini donuts. My favourite thing at a fair! I know you can find them elsewhere, but I only let myself eat them at a fair. And yes, I totally use my bucket for snacks or a dog water dish for the next few months!
