Western Idaho Fair

Huge Horse, Percheron I believe
IS this horse not spectacular? I sure think so! This is at the Western Idaho Fair. Though this is not a typical English or Western 'show' horse, he performed beautifully and was a pleasure to watch. I couldn't help taking a picture of him. Check out the 'macrame' style braiding of his mane.

That is me and my horse! Wow 4 years later and I just happened by chance to have found this it warms my heart! She is actually a pure bred Shire Draft horse, 18.1 hh and that was the only year the fair board allowed me to compete with her in the riding classes. They had so many complaints from the light horses I was told to stay in the draft division, which doesn't have riding classes because most people don't use drafts for riding. Sad but what a glorious time we had that year :) She was a rescue horse that I spent a year rehabilitating, and ended up winning blue ribbons in every class at the fair. She was as gentle and kid as she was big and beautiful. Thank you for the picture!!

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
