So here are some pictures to show you what we do for fun around these parts. :)
First they ride past the crowd to show off their horses and their awesome outfits. Love the chicken hat, Dave!
They load up in the gates (see the blue gates in the background) and GO!!!!
And they run!
Sometimes it's too close to call. Good thing for photo finishes.
But by the time they're back from their cool down lap the times are in. It's a short race, only about 24-26 seconds, but it sure is a lot of fun! And see the cowboy in the background? There are outriders in case any of the teams decide to run away.
This was the final race of the day (we were on the other side of the track).
It was a beautiful, snowy winters day in Wyoming and we were glad to be there! :)
In other news, we're back online. Hooray! And there's a sewing circle today at my local quilt shop (LQS) so hopefully I'll have something to share for WIP Wednesday today. But even if I don't you should hop over there for a visit to see what everyone else is working on this week.
