<< From Mary Forrester in Oregon, Now there's a great idea. Heidi Smith has
been announcing vet scores on every horse shown for BC for all they years
that I have been in this game. Is she the only one? >>
Thanks, Mary. It seems to be a pretty uncommon practice. but I have seen a
few other vets who do it. Thanks for the compliment. For those who are not
familiar with the practice, our BC presentations are usually left until last.
The head vet gets up with the forms, announces that X number of horses
judged (may be all 10 that were eligible, may be only a few) and that you
want to give credit to all who had judgeable horses. Then you start
anouncing the scores from the bottom up, including making a mention of who
had the high vet score (may or may not be the horse that got the actual
award). Makes the presentation suspenseful, too, as the horses are announced
one by one until only the winner is left. It is also a way of giving a pat
on the back to folks who had either outstanding vet scores or whose overall
scores were very close to that of the winner.
