Steph and Skip
Cullen and Steve taking care of the booth! There was a lot of people stopping to check on Skip, and Steph has some people real interested in getting their mares bred to Skip. The smaller pictures around the out side of the horseshoe are pictures of some of Skips babies.
The chair they won that was part of the Grand Champion prize. Their name and horse name was added after the show.
Nicole also got money as part of the Grand Champion Prize and she bought herself a pair of buffalo hide chinks. Chinks are the leather coverings that are shorter in length than chaps. In the pictures above, Nicole has on Cullens chinks.
I stayed at the motel with the girls, and Steve and Cullen went home every night to do chores. Long days at the barn, and I'm now glad to be home again. It was hard to sit around all day. My little camera bit the dust, so in between things that Steph was riding in, Cullen took me to Best Buy and I got a new camera. Upgraded to a Canon PowerShot SX20IS. So have some learning to do. My old camera just locked up! Had to remove the battery to get it to shut off, and unlock from the program it was on. Finally, that didn't even work! Always happens when you want to use it for something important.
