Elmore County Fair Monday AM

Posted Sunday, August 1, 2010, at 8:58 AM

Monday morning is always the morning of "Showmanship"  .... this is the class that the kids have scrubbed and shined their horses, so show that they have the most beautiful horse in the county/country.  This is before they put a saddle on, which leaves saddle marks.  They paint their hooves, clip tiny hairs.... and use a dust cloth JUST before they enter the arena to show off their

Wonder Horses.

Horses have to trot alongside their handler, and         "set up" with a simple hand movement.

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.
