A few months ago, I learned that a high school friend of mine lived not 20 minutes from the cottage, and with her partner, ran a show horse company called Mileham Show Horses. Liz and Doug invited us up one afternoon to chat and see the horses. We pretty much spent the entire afternoon catching up, telling stories and generally having great time.
Fast forward to a couple weeks ago, and Liz send messaged me on Facebook, and invited us to a horse show they were hosting at their place.
Despite a day full of threatening (and promise fulfilled) rain, we had a great time watching the horses and chatting with some of the competitors - even in the rain! The age range of these competitors was extensive, from young to old, and it was clear they loved their animals.
In all, I believe there were 34 Apaloosas on-site for the competition
We stayed for the pot-luck dinner and not-so-silent auction, all of which occurred in the horse barn itself! We had a blast and met some wonderful people.
While I didn't make a lot of photos, below is the collection I'm pleased with.
