There's usually a draft horse show on the last day of the Arapahoe County Fair, but this year, the Sunday equine competition was limited to a 4-H Showmanship Contest.Honestly, I don't find showmanship to be terribly interesting, especially not at this level. I wouldn't have bothered to watch it all, but (butt?)...
Longtime readers might recognize this horse. She was featured in an Almost Wordless Wednesday post in 2012.
A few months later, Jamie Baker (now Castleman) used those photos to paint a sensational Dante.
Even though my good camera is still in the shop, I couldn't resist taking more reference pictures of both her...
and her less flashy stablemate.
Because, you know, someday I will paint an Appaloosa!
