I was very well behaved on the spending front as, although that had more to do with the fact that I didn't have the pennies to spare than a reflection on the goods on offer. The girls I went with were much better spenders than I was, ;-)
Kika's new bit
I picked up the bit i wanted for Kika & a pair of reins for Nancy...last of the big spenders I am!
Although I was exceedingly good on not buying equine things for the sake of it - I did still end up spending more money than expected due to shepherding/ enclosed/ trapped situation that was being in the halls and limited in where you could get drinks/food!
Those prices were the cripplers and where most of my money was spent! :(
On to the photos now with less words from me I hope!
Phew - I hear readers sigh, can't say I blame you as my posts do tend to be waffly! I must apologise for my previous post, I didn't realise how long it was until after I hit poot! Woopsy!
Each hall had at least one arena/display area which hilighted different breeds/disciplines & were often educational...or so I gather. It was all in German and I couldn't understand everything! *blush*
I should probably start back at classes! :p
|Bones & muscles painted onto horse for display on physiology|
|Iberian horses - Baroque Cup Class|
|His outfit was class - attention to detail & commitment to character included boots!!|
Then came the Icelandics:
Next post will have photos & mini-videos of the Show which was on Saturday night showcasing wonderful horsemanship & equine/human relationships!
PS: Apologies for fuzzyness of some of the photos - you wouldn't believe how cold it was in that arena - that and I was again getting used to having my camera phone back again - sorry quality isn't better! :/
Good job on the spending limit! I love the pictures too, especially the muscle horse one. Those never get old to me, it's just cool to see how everything interacts in real time.ReplyDelete
Spending limit was enforced by powers beyond my control, lol - aka: not having the money to spend forcing my hand. ;-)Delete
But I am still proud of me for keeping my head and not buying stuff I didn't need but may have wanted!
Really enjoyed those demos - only wish i could've understood them better...maybe in two years time I'll have been a good girl, gone back to my German classes and be better able to understand!
Very cool and I agree the crippling thing about conferences and trade shows is the price of food!ReplyDelete
That was the most sickening thing - if not for the need to eat & drink I could have gotten more horsey trinkets ;)Delete
Aren't they just the cutest things!Delete
If you do get one, we NEED photos! :p
