SHELBYVILLE, TN – All must make this walk to the inspection area. The horse gets swabbed, then a retinal scan, walk the cones and finally digital palpation and possibly hoof tested.
So far this year, the inspections have been for real.
Ask HONORS – Larry Edwards or A BRUCE PEARL – Jimmy McConnell.
Nephew Eugene said this morning he was going to eat breakfast with one of his barn help buddies, but he didn’t show up down at the Huddle House. Eugene done come to find out that his bosses, two brothers from Georgia, done loaded up all their stock and were last seen headed back to Albany.
So far tonight, the show is going pretty good.
One ladies class was split with about 15 in each division.
The Amateur Ladies on Walking Stallions had about 25 horses in the ring.
It looked like the old days.
The Four Year class had some deep Mammy Hoppers, and unfortunately, they looked like the old days, too.
“I Am Jose” with Casey Wright won the class. I believe that “hunched over” Callaway boy was reserve.
