Peppi’s first show

We took Peppi to her first (official) show a few weeks back. What an exciting day in Peppi’s life! She experienced what it was like to travel alone, without mommy on board.

She received a II- prize (range from III- to I). She was the second best of her class with good points: type 7, barrel 8, legs 7, hooves 8, walk 7, trot 7 (scale 1-10).  She is now 132 cm at withers and 136 at croup, which means that she is growing quite fast at the moment but is still a bit smaller than the others (most of them were around 135-140cm). Maybe she wants to be a pony after all? ;)

A bit worried look… “What’s happening?”


Posing for the jury


Swish! Look what I can do!




Feeling pretty!


132 cm at withers, 136 at croup

Lads had some trouble trying to figure out what that human meant with all that clicking and whistling. When they tried to approach, photographer walked away! “What’s that all about?” they seemed to wonder…
