Early this morning, it was time to head home from the National Western Stock Show in Denver. During our time at the horse show, we had developed a good rapport with the horse (and its people) in the next stall over. He is a very good natured horse, his rider very polite. She said not to stand too close with the treats bag. Big Ben is quite adept at a sneaking out a treat without you knowing it.
He gave a semi-forlorn look as the girls began to trailer their horses. But, he was heading home too, with his stable mate, in Nebraska. Though Big Ben competed in different classes, he did very well. He’s taking home several ribbons.
