Shelbyville - Thursday
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.
