A Horse Show | Gold Coast I

The first horse show of the season and we
came to watch 

My sister and The Ringer!

Horse shows are not easy on us
We have to be leashed, it's crowded, and this last weekend it was particularly cold. M decided to try on this jacket without the hood this time. Did she really think I wouldn't recognize it? I decided to take 10 minutes to walk an entire foot. M finally gave up and removed the torture device. 

Frankie wasn't much happier than me either

Even our furiend, Madi, had a rough day
She was strapped to her new sissy, Holly, for training purposes
One blue heeler leading the other . . .

Luckily, a good samaritan with an awesome jacket took pity on me

By the end of the last day of the show, well, we decided to loosen up a little.
Blue heeler training session: Madi training Holly for the FIFA World Cup

See the black and white Chihuahua? 
It's Trixie, from our barn. She really cut loose. She decided to go after Frankie. Physically, the Brat is okay, mentally not so much. She's a sensitive gal and it will take her a while to get over it. I promise I will keep a better eye on my chiweenie sis. 

Looking forward to whatever this week has in store. Aren't you?

Hi Twinkie wow the horse show must have been lots of fun...well for the riders and the horses. Not so much for you pups. Thank goodness you found that warm jacket to snuggle in.
OMD you have a K9 friend named Madi too. That is pretty funny. Now I'll have to start signing my name Madi Fe_____(line) or Madin not the K9??? Which do you like?
M&M for now.

Horse shows are always fun, and it sounds like this one was no exception!

Dexter said...

I have seen those paralyzing jackets on other doggies. I am surprised you made it as far as you did. They can even make terriers turn to statues.


Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

OMD OMD... A Dawgie Strait Jacket!! How cruel. BOL BOL I'm thinkin' that it just isn't cold ENOUGH or you would be like me... Love my bomber jacket, sweaters, and hoodie... IN THE WINTER!! Butt, like you, not so much in the warmer weather.

Hey Twinkie, you should warn your mom... don't ever ask my mom for advice... she gets dispoopsia of the keyboard sometimes!!! I'm just sayin'. hehehe

Martha said...

Hi Twinkie, we thought you had a very cool adventure at the horse show but we didn't like the look of that jacket either!
love and kisses

Remington said...

You have to be careful around those big guys. You looked so cozy in that jacket with your friend. Glad you had fun!

BRUTUS said...

So your sissy is a Hunter/Jumper person!?! Very nice. Did I tell you mom my used to show Dressage? Glad she got that out of her system & decided to concentrate on something more important (me!!). Agility is full of ex-horse people, not surprisingly! Maybe I'll make mom post some of her competition photos sometime- hehehe!

Deetz said...

We have horses too. There is this one that taunts me all the time, then I get yelled at for barking at him....whatever! one of these days that horse is gonna get in trouble, I just know it.

Sketching with Dogs said...

Glad you managed to get rid of your straight jacket - not that were saying you're mad or anything!
Hope some good fun was had at the horse show.

Hi Twinkie

We found you through Mango's blog. We love the pic of you snuggled in the good samaritan's jacket.

Hey Twink! It looks like you had a pretty good time, once you got the wardrobe situation sorted out. The look on your face is classic! Tell Frankie we hope she feels better!


Sierra Rose said...

What an event!!! Horse jumping, chilly weather...leashes. The couch in the first pic looked pretty comfy though! Happy week pals.

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Thanks fur sharing!


Sonic said...

Does Trixie wear that big padding to protect her from horses? Cos I'm not sure how much protection she'd get from that!

Still, the horses look like they'd be really fun to watch!

How do you always get the best deal! Cuddles no sweaters. Huh.. that madi looks cute! What kinda mix is she?

That horse show didn't look too bad.. especially with your friends. Well.. minus the trixie nonsense.

Ina in Alaska said...

We have a tiny little friend, a teacup poodle named Binti and she might weigh all of 4 lbs soaking wet and she hates her coats too but she is learning to like them. Maybe. Looks like the horse show was a lot of fun! Toby, Ginger, Jeter and Halle xoxo

Oreo said...

Hey Twink
Looks like fun at the horse show. WTG bout the whole jacket thing going on. What was your Mom thinkin???? I think sometimes they actually loose their brains!! LOL

Better keep an eye out on that black.white thing, and keep keeping watch over Frankie!!

You looked so cute all in the good samaritans jacket. Thats the way you should be treated huh??

Looks like you are having an ummmmm interesting time Twinkie!!


The WriggleButts said...

That looks like fun even if it was a little chilly.


Smushie Ranch said...

Heya Twink,

I HATE wearing sweaters too. I refuse to move when the parent puts anything on me.

If ya need me to come down there and help ya kick some booty, let me know. I'll bring ya boyfriend with me. ;P


Piappies World said...

Hi Twinkie,

Thanks for taking us to our first horse show. You sure had a great time and you looked cozy inside that jacket. So sweet.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Hi Twinkie! Horse shows look like they would be too stressfull for BabyRD. She keeps her ears back when we are in a big crowd so Daddy says she doesn't like crowds. I probably wouldn't mind at all,but then, I'm like the life of the party!!

Now,about that jacket. We both have many jackets & no problemo there, but when they put a HAT on my head I become the Statue of Welsh Terrier!! After a while I will loosen up, but generally I just stand still for the photgraphers to get their best shots!! hehehe.

Achieve1dream said...

I bet horse shows are fun. My mom loves them! She won't take me because she seems to think for some reason I'll spend the whole time whining and make her crazy . . . don't know why she'd think that.


Sagira said...

Looks exciting.

I think your coats are very stylish!
