There wasn’t much going on in the CDE barn when I wandered over this afternoon. A few people were organizing things. Horses and ponies were hanging out in their stalls. One couple was giving their horse a bath.

So I kept going, over to the National Drive barns, where I saw more dogs out in the aisles than horses / ponies / minis / donkeys. Here, too, some equines were hanging out in their stalls, and a few people were hanging out at the trade fair or relaxing by their horses’ stalls, or unhitching or putting to. But this is such a gorgeous day that I would venture a guess that most folks were out driving.
