    Was a good day, nice weather.
    Gaia thanks for the lovely comments she has certainly grown up into a big girl now.

    We got 4th in best presented, 2nd in the mare class and RESERVE CHAMPION was stoked with that. She was a little exicted to start with but then calmed down, we finally made the whole lap of the grand parade a little strong but overall a good girl and i was very happy with her.

    Thanks goes to emma you did a great job plaiting and I appreciated it very much:)* :)*

    No photos sorry forgot camera.

    Hi All, well i am slowly recovering from our huge day yesterday, it was our first Royal and without the help from the Standy 'family' we would have been a bit lost actually (BIG thanks to Gaia, Admiral and Admiral's Mum!!!!!!)

    I was extatic with our results, we got:

    3rd Best Presented
    2nd Gelding

    Ike handled the day SOOOOO well and we couldnt praise him enough... he even coped with a very loud machine brushing against the back of the stables every 5 mins and was SO calm during the grand parade even though he hasnt ever seen some of the animals that we had to walk past and so many loud noises from the sidelines lol.

    A huge thanks to Magic aswell who made my Browband, stock and also my vest (sorry about the late notice on the vest Mel... nothing like a panicked phone call to spice up your day lol!!)

    But my biggest thanks would have to go to Safs_mum and my lovely long suffering OH... you are such legends and your help and calming words are what got me through :) :)

    Here is a pic,

    Congrats to all the Standy competitors... we all did the breed proud!!
