Horse show

Today I went to a 4h mock horse show and I was going to show in the horseless horse groom Best Groomed horse class and my coach that I'm matched up with was going to do showmanship and stuff. She brought her young black/white paint horse and she was lunging her and then this other horse got loose 3 times and the third time it ran towards the lunge line and was going to jump over it but then it was going to get tangled so she let go of the lead rope and then her horse went running off around the fairgrounds. Then she decided that her horse was too insane to show (it was going to be the horse's first show) and so she scratched us from our classes. I was kind of disappointed because it was going to be my first show too but I'd rather not show and be safe than be in the ring with an excited horse who goes crazy sometimes. So I was outside from like 7:00 am to 2:00pm and I got a sunburn on my face because I failed to think about bringing sunscreen. I'm also really tired since I had to wake up at 6. I think I was pretty nervous because all I ate all day until 3:30 pm was half a pancake and 1 poptart. I didn't get hungry until we left to go back to my coach's house. I had fun though even though I didn't show.

As for knitting, I finished the knitting for the nautiloid minus the tentacles and I need to sew the face to the shell. I also started a baby sweater for a layette at my church. It is going very quickly because it is very simple and just stockinette. :)
