For the last few years as Show Mom, I never had problems coming up with my daughters "pack for show" list, but today I'm racking my brain and am sure I'm forgetting something for this weekend.
Kid had his first full bath today, he did ok but wasnt sure he liked the smell of oxy clean on his whites, he moved back and forth but for a baby was much better than I expected. I have hosed his legs clean before but not done him from head to foot. I'm going to bathe him again tomorrow morning then after he's dry we'll load up to head down for him to settle in and show him around the facilities tomorrow before the show Saturday.
I clipped his muzzle hairs, long hairs around and above his eyes (not the eyelashes) and under his jowl and poll area (ears were a no go, we've been slowly working at it and I can get near them with the clippers but once the bzzzzz actually touches the hair he moves too much and I dont want it to be a bad experience so it may not be this show having his ears done), mane is trimmed and ready to band. Fetlocks are trimmed and clean looking.
Halter is cleaned and in trailer.
I"ve got his feed, hay, buckets, grooming stuff (brushes, hoof pick)
after that I'm a total blank :roll:
I've put together a some what showable outfit for myself (I think) or at least something that shouldnt be too embarrassing to be seen in public with, not flashy but clean/neat westerny.
What am I missing !!!!!! other than my sanity, lost that years ago.
I need a Show Mommie myself now!!

turns out I'd forgotten, bedding, manure fork and muck bucket ;) lol
anyways the little boy had another bath and his tail braided, now when he swishes it it hits him so he's not too thrilled but he's smart enough to figure out not to swish, there's no flies in his stall so no reason to swing it around.
Once my husband gets home this aft we'll load up and head over to sussex.
here's kid after getting his bath.

I found a great thing for white socks...corn starch and water. Wish I knew about it when I was showing the old mare. Make a nice paste, rub it into the sock, let dry, clean off...shining white socks. Ok to leave over night.

You are going to do great...Good luck, have fun and most importantly BREATHE!!!!!!! :flower: :http://www.cli :flower:

WOO HOOOO....he looks terrific....but folks wont look for your pictures in this thread and they are definately worth looking at...........the kid looks amazing, and you certainly looked like you got yourself together in time!!!!!!!! I used to be at every show with the store and wondered why the kids showing needed 2 friends, mum dad and grandparents to help get ready............well, now we all know....it doesnt work without help and friends............GOOD FOR YOU.

I really needed a whole team with me. It seems the last second things you need a spare pair of legs to run for you. here's a few crazy things that I couldnt have gotten through without helpers.
Jane showing me how to band properly at midnight the night before the show, lol
Show morning I could have used someone who remembered that show started at 8, I thought 8:30 so needless to say I ended up being not ready. Heard them starting the show and figured I still will have lots of time between class 1 and 12 which I was in... nope, next announcement jumped from class 4 to 11 as there were no entries for 5-10.
Horse in stall in regular halter, rush to stall to change halter, realize show halter in trailer, run to trailer, throw halter on and run to arena for class, get in arena, kid jumps because weanling behind gets jumpy, lose hat into dirt, get set up and judge asks "where's your number?"
Forgot to pin number on me. try getting husbands attention on rail to go get it for me, he doesnt read lips well :roll: lol finally he figures out what I need and fetches it for me, waiting for next class we're in I realize crown of halter was twisted, so unbuckle and reset it while hubby starts to pin on back number, get one pin in and am called in for next class.
When you're the one showing it seems you cant multi task or think straight so thats wy everyone needs friends, helpers, parents, support staff and rubber room. lol!

All in all I did survive and will do it again, just next time I hope to be a little better prepared.
