Sunday Races...

On Sunday we took a trip over to Clinton Raceways, less than 20 kms from home, to the horse races.It was a special weekend there, with games etc for the kids on Saturday and at the end of the regular races, on Sunday, they had a special one quarter mile race of the minis. I couldn't miss this one.
There was a good crowd and the day was enjoyed by all.
 All 'fours' off the ground..

 I'm pooped...

Miniature Horse Show..Bayfield Fall Festival..

Last weekend, we also spent the morning down at Bayfield, it is only 20 kms or so south of us, had a great time seeing a few of the events and showings, but really loved the miniature horse show, I had never seen these fellows in a show so was really impressed. They had to be 38 inches or shorter to in the event so keep that in mind. Today we are going to the Clinton Raceways, miniature horse are racing there, hope we can catch it.
Here are some of my favorite pics from Bayfields festival..








and my favorite 'regular' size horse was Zeus, an 8 year old of the Morgan Breed..all prettied up for his event.

Tall Ships...in Kincardine, On..

While out for a drive yesterday morning, heard on the radio, that two of the tall ships were in Kincardine as a stopover, so we headed up there to get a few pics..
what a thrill, I talked to the petty officer for quite awhile, neat experience for the kids who sign up. He is on the Pathfinder, just up from the Chicago tour and
the other ship, the Playfair (both out of Toronto) just down from the Owen Sound tour last weekend, met up in Kincardine for a few days....

This fellow has meals for a few days I think...he was enjoying himself..

Piping down the sun...again..

On July 27/13, I posted about the Celtic Blue Hylanders piping down the sun, as mentioned they do this every Friday evening throughout the summer. Last nite was the last one for this year, so we headed down early as there wasn`t a cloud in the sky and a beautiful sunset was `promised`...and we weren`t disappointed...
