Well me and my family are a little disappointed with a 4th place again at Derby.
It seems current judges trends are that they seem to be picking winners and placed horses that have the minimum of welsh blood in there lines...and seem to be going for stocky and well built types whos Mothers are mainly true horse blood types. So in a nutshell winners have a small % of welsh blood ' something like 15% or so.
So we made the rosettes again and placed 4th like last year so not all is bad...we have to remember we are competing at county level and not club level, so a placing in this type of show is a result ' thats for sure '
The day went well....I travelled well, boxed with no fuss and performed in the ring. The weather was beautiful all day and I consumed plenty of water during the day.
I am now on the grass at home and chilling out for a while as we need to find a new home but come back soon to read any news and see if I turnout for a show before the Nationals at the end of August.
Til next time Love Always Rififi x
