Young Miss Viola May was not in her pasture this morning when I took my daily walk. She has gone to town with her mother.
Yesterday, I did see her briefly at the wash rack with Mom. With halter classes coming up a few hours later at the North Idaho Draft and Mule Show, http://www.idahodrafthorseshow.com/ the two stood side by side, most of the time, while Lori, one of Gary Finney’s drivers, gave Mama Percheron a bath.
I say "most of the time" because during one moment Viola May thought she needed to be much closer to Mom, and Lori was in between the two on her mounting block.
A slight ruckus ensued and then Gary’s other driver, Coe, intervened, telling Viola May that she needed to stand still.
The little Percheron baby complied.
I don’t know if both mom and daughter were in the halter classes, but I’m sure the whole experience was an adventure for the little gal who’s usually hanging with her mom in the pasture next door.
Seemed a little different this morning when just a lone doe was grazing in the field.
Yesterday was fairly quiet at the show as folks were setting up and getting ready for the big events starting today at noon. Two shows---one this afternoon and one this evening.
Today is senior day at the show, too. Seniors get in two for the price of one. Not a bad deal.
Plan to take along some cash for parking, concessions and for some shopping with vendors inside the main exhibit building at the fairgrounds.
If the show is anything like those in the past, it should provide some dramatic imagery and some neat sounds as those big horses pound the ground and show off.
I think we're going to take in one of the shows, and, of course, I'll take pictures. For now, you can visit the link above and see some neat photos from past shows streaming across the site.
