Flash; Flinthillspaintedlady Day #185 Show Debut!

On Flash’s 185th day on the HK Bar we celebrated OFF the HK Bar, at Topeka Expo Center! It was Flash’s very first show. She showed in paint/pinto halter as well as Horse, 2 years and under. We placed second place under both judges in Horse 2 and under. Wahoo!

Flash was a rock star from the beginning of her bath. All the way through trailering and prepping for the show once we were there. I kept wondering when we would bobble. She acted like a well seasoned show horse! (Except we don’t know how to square up yet). I was truly amazed at how well she did. Especially at an indoor arena she has never seen! There was so much going on in the expo center, as well as a fair going on next door!

Flash asleep at the trailer after her classes. Nothing fazed her, not even the loud fair going on behind her.

Just another testament to the quality of horses the Double J out of Eskridge Kansas is producing. Great job J.D. and Jana Dreasher!

I have had such a wonderful experience with Flash. From learning to cross puddles, load in a trailer with confidence, and now on to a show career! I look forward to decades more summers of shows, with her as my partner!
