A day at the fair....

Our normal Monty Monday post has been replaced today with a recap of our weekend at the Grand Teton County Fair.  Monty Monday will return next week!  :)

Saturday morning the fair hosted an agility event and I decided to take Harlow along.  It has been two months since we practiced and I felt she needed a break from squirrel hunting challenge.

Of course, I was easily distracted the moment we got there - the horse show was going on.

We knew we weren't in Arizona anymore the second we got to the ring - right outside of the exit gate was the cattle washing station for the petting zoo....
 Thankfully the course was easy, a long S pattern, but I made sure to study it carefully.  So did Harlow.
After da tunnel is a sharp right.  I got dis, da Momma.
Unfortunately, I have no photos of Harlow doing her courses.  Let's just say the first one she decided a freestyle pattern was the optimal way to go.  Our second time through she did just fine!  We only messed up because I missed the last jump - a skinny little thing that blended in with the cattle washing pens.
How could you, da Momma?
Since this wasn't an actual trial, they only gave ribbons for clear rounds and participation.  I'm still pretty proud of our participation ribbon.  We can now say we performed at a county fair!
Of course, to Harlow?  The day was perfect - zoomies and lots of loving from strangers!
I iz awesome!
