Lipizzaner Stallions

Good Morning,
Well i hope that everyone had a very good Mother's Day yesterday. I certainly did.
We had not bought tickets ahe
ad so was not sure if we would even get any, but our expo center is very large, we took Princess with us as we usually do, it was a bit chilly out with the wind blowing so figured it would be cool leaving the windows cracked, but by the time we got there it had warmed up quiet a bit, We walked her to the check in area, and these ladies said, are you going to the show? And i said yes, she said well you can't take the dog in, i said yes i know that, she said well its too hot to leave your dog in the car, i said yes i know that, we will leave the A/C on. She looked puzzled and walked off. The show was 50 minutes with a 15 min. intermission, so during the intermission we made a mad dash to go back to the parking lot to check on her, Now i have to tell ya, not sure the distance to the parking from the arena but its not short, and it has been a long time since i have walked that far and that fast in a long time, and boy am i sore this morning.

We went to see the Lippizzaner Stallions at our local Expo Center. These are truly magnificent horses, if you have never seen them and get the chance, go see them, I
think its well worth the money, of course you have to like horses.

Boy what showmanship,when you watch them you can see there feet clicking each step they make, hard to describe but its amazing.

I tried so hard to get a shot of the horse jumping in t
he air with all fours off the ground, but my camera just isn't fast enough, or with a good zoom, all i did was complain to Nevada that i just have to have a better camera. One of these days i will just have to get one, i miss some really good shots.
Well that was my excitement for the week, have not done much all week so there for not much in the way of posting.

Weather is really nice, suppose to be 79 today.
How is the gas prices were you all are at? Cheapest here is $3.38
Well have a good day.

I think you took great shots!

I don't feel so bad about our gas, I just filled up for $3.44/gal. In San Francisco it's over $4 though.

The shots look pretty darn good to me! Quite the horses! We have Clydsdales not far from our place...they are the "fill in " horses for the Budweiser team.

I saw the Lippizaners a few years ago in Toronto, they put on a wonderful show. Such training!
