Ponies and stuff.

Also, this:

I did take a few photos of the Shire Horse Show, but none of them are particularly worthy of uploading because they were all point-and-clicks; I was working, after all, and didn't have the luxury of dicking around with my camera. :P I would suggest you check out the Flickr gallery I linked to in my last post if you're interested in seeing the show.

We done good, though: 6th (out of 24) in the In-Hand Senior Geldings with Jacob, 3rd (out of 12) in the In-Hand 3-year-old Geldings with Henry, 2nd in the Trade Turnout Teams (out of 4) and 2nd in the Trade Turnout Pairs (not sure how many were in that class, I wasn't there on Sunday).

Jen, Kala and Brookfield!Rob came to visit on Saturday, which was really cool, and Jen very nearly bought a 10-month-old colt. :P She's still very tempted. My fault entirely: letting her ride Bea has given her that Shire horse infatuation, because once you've ridden one you can never really go back to a 'normal' horse. I certainly don't enjoy riding as much as I do with a heavy.

Yesterday I had to work in the morning, then I went down to Bracknell (near Reading) to see glenatron's band play their debut gig*. They were AWESOME. Such an insanely talented bunch of people. I did take photos, but as I used Ben's camera I won't be able to share any until he uploads some.

I came home this afternoon and tomorrow it's back to my day job and boring normality. :(

So, to keep away the glooms, here are some more photos of Ben & ponies this morning.

Not sure how, but Zorro's neck and head are in sharp focus whereas the rest of his body decidedly isn't ... maybe that's a magic rope?

Ah yes, the :P ... classic Zorro.

The pigs were being suspicious. They were sleeping. I know, right?!

Cash conquers those Surrey hills.

Cash thought Ben might want to catch him. I just love how jaunty he looks while legging it.

* I feel it's important to draw attention to this: I went to see Ben instead of going back to the showground. In an unprecedented event, my love of a man went head-to-head with my love of the Shires and won. HELL FROZE OVER AND EVERYTHING.

Cash is absolutely unconcerned about being caught isn't he? He just doesn't really feel like it. That pony is a pesky snuffweasel.

You did the right thing by coming to the gig. 100% right.

Ben won out over Shires? D'aww! Somewhere a god is terribly amused by that fact.
