I'm sorry, but I still don't have anything stitched to share. Life has taken rather a busy turn 'outside' for me, and stitching has been put aside. But, the weekend saw us at the local horse racing, sharing the sun and the fun with well over 1000 other would-be punters. It was a great day, hot, but most enjoyable. I am sure the organizers would be very pleased with the turn out. We had some 'connections' [LOL] in the last race, but sadly, not a winner, and the wallet was a little worse for wear at the end of the day. Never mind, life goes on. The horse in the photograph above is owned by our son, his wife, her sister and husband. His 'stable' name is Rambo.
This was another shot taken in the mounting yard. Our DIL was his 'strapper' for the day, and he is trained by her sister. I felt a little sorry for the girls, as they had to stay with the horse in the stables for the whole day while we were all 'mingling'. We did think he had the goods, but he'd drawn the very outside barrier. Our son didn't give him much of a chance. I suppose you can't win 'em all.
And, of course, as most of you know, I'm always up for a little giggle, so could not resist taking this photo. Thankfully I snapped them early in the day before the crowd became a shoulder to shoulder mass. These guys obviously had decided they were not interested in winning the fashions of the field, and looked like they were ready for a good day out. Most of the people were considerably better dressed I might add!! Hope you get a chuckle of this.
