Flying The Flag

American Flag and National AnthemI don’t know about anyone else but when our American flag came by in the ring during our National Anthem last night I got a lump in my throat.

This kicked off the ceremonies last night at the Toys for Tots Performance. Awards were given out and sponsors and dignitaries like Barry Corbin were honored.

There are a number of pictures from the event in my photo album.

    We are always moved by the National Anthem during the ceremonies. This is the night that generates the most enthusiasm and attendance in the stadium and is perhaps the one that draws the most attention from the general public. We bring new members and prospective members to the World Show with us every year. This is one of the highlights of their trip. My question would be, why then, couldn’t we find a COLORED appaloosa to present the flag?

    While I thoroughly enjoyed the evening’s festivities, and I to always get a lump and a little teary eyed at the flag and the nat’l anthem, it would really have been nice to see the flag carried around on colored horse – it is after all our World Show. Austin has a beatiful and talented horse, but the flag really should have been carried by a horse with color – for next year, think of it as a Color Guard! Great show! Had a fabulous time in Fort Worth – thank you to all for their hard work!
