The top photo is of Lori Montgomery and Fancy getting ready for an English class. The adult costume class was held Thursday night (I don't know who they are). The next picture is from the Hunter Hack Class and the bottom picture is from the driving class. This is Michelle Travis and DL Sears.
Thursday started in Calsonic Arena (the indoor arena) with youth showmanship and all of the halter classes. Michelle Travis of Texas won the Grand Champion Halter Mule and Jason Crist and Clyde's Brass Ring took home the reserve. Clyde's Brass Ring is owned by Dwayne Francis of Missouri. The outside arena held mini donkey events. The day held pleasure driving and then English classes in the evening. The schedule was pretty overloaded and the classes were much bigger than they expected apparently when they set the schedule. Things did not run anywhere close to one time. The photo at the top is of Pedro and Kaeli Jones (granddaughter of Jim Mahoney of Ohio). Pedro and Kaeli had a really amazing weekend. The middle photo is of mini donkeys (of which there were about a million at the show). I don't know who he is. The bottom photo is of Kat and Candace Shauger of Ohio.
We arrived at Shelbyville on Wednesday afternoon. The NASMA Youth had a fun show and Camri wanted to play. The youth leaders (Dale Gramman, Stacy Golian and Jason Crist) did a great job of getting all of the kids involved. They played dollar ride, Simon Says and Egg and Spoon. Camri had a great time! Special thanks to everybody who donated stuff for the buckets. Camri loved hers. The top two pictures: Cole and Julee and Roger Smith.

We will be leaving for Shelbyville in the morning (early). I will try to update the blog while we're gone with updates from the show. Cole and Cori are both showing in multiple classes. Camri will be showing in Lead Line. I understand it's going to be a huge show. Safe travel for everyone heading in that direction!!!
These are pictures from last year: the top picture is Cori and Cole and the bottom picture is Loren and Tim Cross.
