Friday evening, Kirstin used Trigger for the rodeo, for 2 reasons: Taz is still recovering from a small injury right about his hoof and we didn't want her running him in the arena but most importantly Kirstin was doing an exhibition barrel race and Trigger is the one who loves to run the barrels.
Saturday morning was TAZ's time. Even though he still has a small sore right above his hoof we figured him walking the parade route wouldn't hurt him. He did great of course- he really loves being in parades-he's a big show off! This brings to an end Kirstin's reign and last parade as rodeo queen. The fact that we don't have to worry about getting horses ready for a parade is the sweet part-no more early, early Saturday mornings, but the fact that Kirstin is no longer queen is the bitter part she did such a fantastic job.
