The (not so big) Debut
Whiskey will make her show-ring debut in two weeks in West Springfield, MA. I had envisioned this as a bit of practice before the National, but since I’m not going to Ohio this will now be just her straight-up debut. I fully anticipate that I am going to get nothing that even remotely resembles a stack on the table, but I’m going to try very hard not to stress myself — and therefore, Whiskey — out about it. Just be happy, make it fun, have lots of treats, and don’t worry about placements the first time out. The important thing is to make it her first show a positive experience.
I had feared that I wouldn’t be able to take Magnum, but since his lameness completely disappeared with that first dose of doxycycline, I will take him as planned. I don’t have the numbers for the Sunday show yet, but the Saturday breakdown is 3-4(3-2), so a nice small number. Hopefully he can pick up another Grand point or two.
Who else is coming to Springfield the 7th & 8th? I could maybe be talked into bringing scones…
