Horse Fair...Revisited copyright 2007
English Halter Championship ~ 1909
Story: The warm wind gently blows clouds by, the shadows lengthen across the grass on the track showing signs of the afternoon passing.
All day excitement has been building, leading up to this last class and its outcome.
Around the big beautiful Grand Stand (which is filled to the brim) the crowds are gathering. Along the fence, they watch the judge and all the horses trotting by him, hoping to catch the judge?s eye, then into the line-up. The judge will walk by them one more time before he makes his final decision.
Soon the Blue Ribbon will be awarded to the best at the fair. Bragging rights along with the title go to the winner until next year?s fair.
The inspiration for this painting came from the wonderful old county fair held at Galesville, WI. The Grand Stand and ticket booth were original and still looked this way in the late 1970s.
