Barrel Racing

I was in Wahoo, Nebraska last week, attending the Saunders County Fair, where my granddaughter was competing in three horsemanship events.  I like these small-town events because photographers have good access to almost everything.

While waiting for my granddaughter’s turn at barrel racing,  I got up close to the arena fence to take some test shots.  This shot got my lens covered with dust and my mouth full of dirt.  Okay, time to back up and use the telephoto lens.

Boy, those horses are BIG!

Thought for the Day:  When you’re young and you fall off a horse, you may break something.   When you’re my age, you splatter.                              Roy Rogers
