Midwest Horse Fair Fun

Fun Photo Friday

The Midwest Horse Fair in Madison Wisconsin was a very large, three day event. I don’t know how they organize such a big event, three days just are not enough to see and do everything.

As you saw in the featured image from your Fun Photo Friday newsletter,yes,┬áthis horse did “paint” this canvas! The kids really loved this show and they all got to take their picture with the horse and watch him “sign” his artwork.

Big Jake is being considered for the title of the World’s Tallest Living Horse. The 9-year-old Belgian gelding from Smokey Hollow Farm near Poynette stands 20 hands, 2.75 inches – that’s one quarter inch short of 6-foot-11 – from the bottom of his unshod hooves to his withers. He’s taller than the previous record-holder, a Clydesdale from Texas named Remington, who’s 20 hands tall. If you want to read more about him click here.

Another big horse, a Friesian, got to have costumed ladies show him off. The mane is outstanding!

I was jealous that my husband got to do a demonstration (and shake the hand) of one of my horse trainer heros, Richard Winters. All because he wears that flashy jacket, that helps me find him in a crowd. My husband doesn’t even care about horse stuff, but has a new appreciation for it, now that he is “special”.

If you missed the photo of the horse actually painting a canvas, you really need to sign up for your own Fun Photo Friday at www.GordonPhotography.biz so you don’t miss anymore of the really cool stuff.
