Love that mule!
That's Emma! Literally, I think that might be the exact mule that inspired Emma's color scheme.
That mules looks totally like Emma! What great performance reference pics that would be with the same horse! I looooooove the draft horse pictures!
So did they show draft "boys and girls" together? I'm looking at all the different bridles/halters in the class, and I love those drafters!!
Love these photos!!
Lindsay--that's the lineup for the Stallion Championship. The classes were divided by age but not breed and halters/bridles were all over the map. The sabino-y Clydesdale was named Grand Champion Stallion and the black Percheron closest to the camera was Reserve.
Oh, I LOVE that Sabino!!! He's amazing!!So stallions can where whatever the handler is comfortable with showing the horse in - bridle or halter. Interesting!
My guess--the choice of head gear is a matter of choice. So many of the "rules" that model horse people obsess over in regards to tack aren't rules at all. They're conventions.The class is lined up according to age. The black Percheron and the chestnut Belgian next to him were the winner/reserve in the oldest age division and the little Belgians on the other end were the youngest.
... you know. I am still not sure. Could you maybe post a few more hints?... ;)hahah As always, thank you for sharing so I can tag along! Love these photos!Sarahbeth.
