Eldorado wins Obstacle Challenge
« on: April 24, 2016, 10:01:32 am »

There was an EXCA race in Mammoth Cave, so most of the heavy hitters were up there. We went to a local obstacle challenge to  raise money for our local rescue. Eldorado came in 1st with a cash Jackpot and a belt buckle. He was a good boy. For some reason they put the petting zoo right next to the arena, and although the obstacles were fairly straight forward, the horses had to get past an Emu, two potbelly pigs a donkey and a turkey who let out a loud gobble periodically. That proved to be the real challenge, so all the horses, including El D came into the arena in high alert. George and Happy did very well too. We left before they passed out  the ribbons so I am not sure if he got 2nd or 3rd.

Thanks! The dang thing is so pretty, I guess I will hang it on the wall since I don't wear belts

Can George make some sort of mount for it in the trailer?  That seems like a great place for it to decorate.

Hey I know... use it as an opener, like a door knob, for a cabinet !   You just have to win 5 or 6 more to have all the cabinets match ...  :-)
