Pico's Big Weekend
Splash got lucky since the Horse Club Quiz Bowl teams went to Stillwater for the State Horse Communication Contest on Sat. and he got to sleep in. Ivy and Alaina participated in Quiz Bowl and Team Problem Solving, Ivy did a speech on horse diseases and vaccinations and Alaina an illustrated presentation on her 7 favorite horse breeds. They were on different teams and Ivy's team is State Reserve Champion Quizbowl team, but both teams did very well. The contest is only one age group and both Rogers County teams are young. They will be a force to be reconded with in future.
Then, Pico had his day on Sunday. Shannean came over in the morning and worked Pico and Splash in the Wild Orban Arena. Shannean and Ruthie are share/leasing Pico for the 2009 GCC/ODS show season. And Shannean will lease Splash for 4-H shows. Hopefully, Splash will learn to like the 4-H horse show regime. Then Pico and Ruthie went to visit Sherry Guess for Ruthie's first lesson on Pico. They made good progress and both made me proud. As you can see, I have been busy recruiting future yaya's.
