Scottish Appaloosa Show 2016

Super drive up to the Scottish Appaloosa show this morning with the mist rolling down the hills and in to the valleys as the sun broke through.  

Anne unfortunately missed a couple of her classes with Chamfron Chaco falling foul to the constant problem with this show venue, it appears to be in the land that sat nav forgot.  Still he was a very good boy getting second in the yearling class.  He then stayed on to offer his support as cheerleader to the polo ponies in the games.  He was probably shaking his head at my very weak effort barrel racing when Anne kindly leant me Bayo.

It was lovely to see the ex Chamfron broodmare Oor Eagle Eye Cherry at the show, looking fantastic and winning the broodmare class followed by taking reserve champion female.  However it was her Arrayan Numa foal, WD Where Eagles Dare, that stole the show.  She won her foal class, took the female championship then stood Supreme Champion of the show.  She is everything an Arrayan Numa filly should be, bold brave and beautiful and she made me smile all day with her super cheery attitude to life.  What a star!
