Sky, Welsh Stallion, featured at MANE Event
The charming stallion who appears in my Welcome post is Sky, an award-winning Welsh Pony stallion, owned by Deb Harper. Sky will be appearing at the Mane Event in Chilliwack, BC, as part of the breeds demonstration segment of this horse trade show. According to what I’ve read on the CHHAPS list (which will have a booth there), and from what Deb tells me, the Mane Event is attended by thousands and is a much-anticipated annual event by all horse owners and lovers. While at Deb’s this July, I got to work with Sky (or rather he worked me!). Sky is as comical as he is gorgeous. He kept me laughing with his antics the whole time I was with him–in fact, he made it impossible for me to do anything except smile and laugh continuously! Sky is incredibly smart, too. I could swear that he knew I was a rookie and laughed at every puny effort I made to follow Deb’s instructions. I’d love to attend the Mane Event in BC and see Deb and Sky in action but alas…maybe next year. In the meantime, if you’re in the area, make sure to attend and say hi to Sky for me (oh, and to Deb, too!).
