Flying

Bronte didn’t walk away with any points this weekend, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve a little bit of attention. She still looks very “young”–she won’t turn two until next year and she’s a BIG girl, so she grows awkwardly. I am seeing great things as she comes together, but her butt needs to come down a little and her chest needs to drop. All the pieces are there–the beautiful front, the sound rear, the rib spring, the tailset. My guess is that she’ll look really good in about six months and spectacular in a year.

Here’s one of the reasons I love her so much: a true flying trot.These were taken by Honour outside the ring, so they are very blurry (no flash allowed). But hopefully you can see the true suspension. She is NOT going fast–I’m walking at normal pace in these.

Poor baby — she doesn’t like the show ring very much (she’s getting a lot better, but it worries her). Can you see her looking up at me?

She has a beautiful down and back — straight and true in the front and the rear.

Just floating along.

One of the great things about not having bred these girls is that I get to brag on them so much :). As it is, I get to point the finger at Betty Ann and crow about how lovely Clue and Bronte are.
