Time for the Fair


While some of my ilk are at Romance Writers of America national conference in San Francisco, I'm home.

This is fair week in Springfield, MO, and I'm visiting with these guys. I love draft horses and their history, dating back to knights. Writing as Cait Logan in western historicals, I researched them heavily for the Oregon Trail and Montana. It's very hot here in Midwest MO, but I made a special trip to the fair, just to see them. BTW, a tall lemonade with lots of ice and lemon halves, plus a corn dog now costs $9.

As for the rest of the weekend, I'm staying in the AC and writing.

I think everyone loves horses, Wendy. Those draft horses are huge. I took a lot of pictures.

Will you post the pictures to your website? Are they like the Cladesdale. I'm spelling that wrong but the Budweiser horses?

Wendy, I didn't get the shots I wanted, i.e. without the fences. But I have others. :)

Oooh, you got some good picutes! Mitch got several, but I haven't had time to post them yet. I love the horse barn at the fair!

Hang in there girl, and stay out of the heat!
