A cold, rainy, late spring meant entry numbers were a bit smaller at this year’s PQHB Futurity, but we still had a blast at Prairieland Park. Judge Ron Anderson kept us all entertained and Dale Clearwater once again won the overall high-point award. I was kind of wishing Dale had more than one horse in the working cowhorse, I got such great shots from his run.
The PQHB show committee puts a lot of work into sponsors and awards – all you need to do is purchase a nice prospect at next year’s PQHB Auction to be able to sign up!
Today I went out on a portrait shoot today for upcoming stories in WCVM Today and Vet Topics. And it took place at the Canadian Light Source Synchrotron! I can’t share any details until the article’s published, but here’s a panorama shot of the inside of the synchrotron. You can see the large circular track where they shoot the electrons around using magnets and the blue line in the bottom right is one of the ‘downlines’ that brings light off the main track so it can be used for experiments. Sometimes it amazes me that we build all these high-tech pieces of scientific wizardry, just so that we can see something better with our own human eyes.
I told them they should be angling for a guest appearance on Big Bang Theory.
