ME Morgan Benefit Show - August 10, 2019

I had not been planning to bring Ellie to this show, but an email had gone out to members a few days prior that entries were a bit low.  So in order to support the club, we headed out to Pineland Farm the morning of August 10, for what promised to be a gorgeous summer day!  All photos that I am in were purchased from the show photographer!
I always think these types of shows are going to be fine, but at the end of every single one of them, I always remember why I should stick with dressage and eventing haha.  That is not to say there is anything wrong with open shows or the club that runs them; this is just not the type of showing we do well at because she's not a "show horse".
The show was held at a gorgeous facility that boasts both large indoor and outdoor arenas.  They chose to have the show indoors with warm-up outside, which is fine, but Ellie was not a fan of the indoor.  One corner was open to the large and echo-y storage area where they had set up the secretary…

Baby Tooth!

This morning after cleaning Reva's stall, I began to push the wheelbarrow out the door when I stepped on something.  Figuring it was a small rock, I bent down to get it....and to my surprise found one of Reva's baby teeth (caps)!  LOL!  So now I have two of her baby teeth...though this one did not cost me $20 like the first.  ;-)  LOL!!!!!

Most horses swallow their caps, but I can totally see Reva eating her hay.....and being like "Whoa, what was THAT?" and proceeded to spit out the offending tooth.  Don't ask me why, but that is just her personality. 


And why in the world do I get so excited about her TEETH?  (I seriously have them both in my office here on the edge of Dreamy's humongous - like could smash someone's skull humongous - 2007 High Point Standardbred horse head bust trophy. HA HA HA HA)  I have no idea why it is so exciting to me.  X-D It is not like the tooth fairy is coming to pay up......good LORD that thing could bring like $20 bucks from the fairy!  tee hee!  Just me being my silly horse girl self.  :D

All the mares are happy and doing well.  I have had some really nice dressage workouts with Dreamy this past week.  We took an hour long trail ride this morning, which was super nice!  Sure was a nice break from yesterday when I went to my hay guy's field to pick up 106 bales of hay.....by myself!  :(  It is not so bad getting it out of the field, it is the stacking it in the barn that SUUUUCKS!  Ah, the things we do for our horses!  :D

  1. Aww that is so cute! I wish I had my mare's baby teeth. I actually did not know horses had baby teeth, probably because they swallow them like you said! Learn something new every day....

  2. Haha don't worry, you're not the only one! I was so excited when I found my filly's baby tooth, it's the only tooth we have from any of our horses.
