Things I Learned on Move-In Day

Things I learned on move-in day:

These are my racing stripes.
- Western people don't trace clip.  Two of our ponies are trace clipped, and we had a total of 6 fellow exhibitors stop and say things like, "Well, I don't think I've ever seen a horse colored like that before," or "I've been standing here a few minutes trying to figure out why that horse is two different colors." I thought the second guy was referring to his flaxen mane and tail but realized what he meant and caught myself just in time.

- Connor thinks posters of horses are horses.  During our practice ride in the performance arena, he kept giving the Suspicious Spooky Ear to one spot in the arena, and when we walked over to it, he went straight up to a poster of a horse running toward the camera hanging on the wall, and touched its nose in greeting.  Adorable.
