Made in the shade

lookingforshade.jpgMan, woman and beast seem to have an instinct about avoiding sunburn and crinkled eyes. This Appaloosa and his companion share the protective shade of a golf cart during the bright part of an afternoon in Jackson, Mississippi, as the World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show gets underway. The weather has been summer-like, but not any more challenging than most other parts of the country (and definitely not as hot as California!).

I’m always struck by the convenience afforded by golf carts at horse shows. And, I’m betting, most trainers, parents and exhbitors probably wouldn’t want to know how many trips back and forth from stalls to the show arena they actually make in a week’s time.
