    There were only two pallies. A gorgeous 2yo colt who was so well behaved when a filly got loose and was running in circles around him and of course Mirawee's gorgeous Diva whowent Supreme - YAY!

    There were 5 buckskins who I thought were all absolutely stunning (I think they were all in different classes).

    Kym went Supreme buckskin which I was absolutely stoked about (and a little surprised) as there was definitely some stiff competition including KC Metallic Jetsetter!

    He went reserve champion to a lovely gelding with a big black spot on his bum (I don't know who he is but I remember that spot from somewhere else - it's so cute). I saw Leanne warming him up for the ridden - he looks so lovely and quiet under saddle (I didn't do the ridden so not sure how she went)!

    2nd Best presented
    1st Gelding 4 and over

    Our boy behaved himself impeccably - i am so thankfull that he never gives us any drama!!

    @) Hi Jonsie

    *wolf whistles* Ike looks great :)) and Murray doesn't scrub up badly either. They look an awesome team. Wish I could convince my OH to run out Ted for me, he's a faster runner lol

    Oh Jonsie! I know who you are now. Your boy is a stunner! I noticed him at the State Champs he went to. Hope you get him out more often, he is definetly one of the nicest Standardbreds around. **)

    Well done Amanda**) congratulations. You two did so well.

    Jonsie your boys look very spiffy.:D

    A very nice lady and little girl came by with their two mini's. You should have seen Poppy's face, it was a "what the?". The lady kindly brought her mini close to Poppy and they and sniffys. You should have seen the face my mare pulled, like OMG boy germs. LOL. I wonder if that lady was a stockie?

    Ali, I saw you but had my hands full with Diva so didn't gte a chance to come and say hi :) A lot of the horses had bees in their bonnets (or ants in their pants in Diva's case :p) A total of 3 loose horses running around (2 of which were stallions and the last was a filly who decided it would be lots of fun to canter around the pally colt while he was in the ring! He was a very good boy - except then was a bit excited in his classes :p)

    CC, I saw your boy, he looks very nice. I have to admit it was the most lively Andy and part-bred classes I have seen though!

    Marianne, what colour were the Mini's?

    Hi guys,
    Well done to everyone.
    Our girl, Leeara Park Royal Petite went Supreme Riding Pony and Top 5 Supreme of Supremes. We were stoked as she is only 1 1/2 and there was some great competition.
    She is the first foal by our resident sire Royal and Regal of Sefton.
    I would post some pics but i dont know how!!!
    There seemed to be quite a few horseys doing 'victory' runs around the grounds without handlers - definitely was very amusing!!!

    Morning S. Like a grey/blue colour. The lady and the little girl had one each. They came around your way after I spoke to them. So friendly which was nice.

    I also met Kimerley, she was stoked when Chloe got best presented.**) Chloe is a very pretty girl.

    Oh thanks Gaia - that means alot! I was wondering if you were a stockie but was too shy to ask :eek:!! We are very proud of our boy and are very lucky to have him. He is such a quiet horse which is why i was so happy that my OH wanted to have a go at running him out! We are hoping to get to a few more shows in the near future and then hit the Royal!
