MILONGA DERBY HAT CONTEST
It's that time of year again, and we are having our annual Milonga Derby. Unfortunately it will be the last one here on the BC eClub, but who knows what the future holds? Meanwhile ladies and gents, get your hat photos ready. The contest begins immediately, and entries can be made until April 19th at midnight PDT. Voting begins on the April 20th, and each flock gets one vote daily for their favorite gent, and one vote daily for their favorite ladybird. The voting ends on May 7th at noon PDT (3PM EDT). There will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner in each category, with ribbons for each. Plus the 1st place winners will also get a prize: a pocket watch for the gent winner and a crystal vase with Derby roses and Oaks lilies for the 1st place in the ladies contest. So get to work on the pics, and be sure to list your page number with your entry on the milonga page #165848, so Taz can pick up the photos, which should be your profile pic at least until Taz has your entry posted in the gallery of the milonga page. Oh! And although it is only one vote per flock per day in each category, your entire flock can enter if they wish to.

  Kaji stops to visit Indy
Such a great horse! Kaji thinks to himself.

So let's do a little ride, how about that, Indy? He asks. Indy shakes his head as if to say "What took you so long? I am ready!"

Kaji saddles Indy, and hoists himself up in the saddle. He takes the reins, and clicks at Indy. They walk out of the stable and head to the racetrack. Indy's ears are pricked forward, anticipating a nice run.

Come visit me, Kaji ~ Vote CHIPPER #257319 BOTM in APRIL.

  RaneBeau walks by all the hat contestants
who are at the Milonga Derby Grounds dropping off their entries on his way to get BODEMIESTER from the barn. It's time to condition runs and practice starts.

As R approaches the big guy's stall, a soft whinny is heard just before a sleek head appears over the gate.

"Hey you," R says as he slips the beautiful animal a little cluster of clover leaves. "How's your Monday been so far? You read for a run? Come on, let's stretch those legs, see how fast they can carry me around the track t'day."

The two quick-step it side by side out the door and towards the dirt track, eager to work on improving their speed.

Come visit me, RaneBeau & BODEMIESTER, Ready to DERBY!.

  RaneBeau and Alfie arrive at the Milonga Barns
In the darkness, they approach the big doors at the south end.

"What's that swishing sound?" Alfie asks as they near the entrance.

"That would be my silk riding pants making that sound," RaneBeau explains. A snicker is heard from Alfie as he slips the key into the lock. "Hey, no laughing, Buster. I've never worn silk anything and I have to get used to it so I don't slide off the saddle on race day. You know jockeys wear silk when they're racing."

"Uh, no they don't, you goof. A jockey's silks are the uniform he wears for whomever he's riding for. I don't think there's anybirdie out there that's going to be wearing silk breeches. Except maybe you."

The two step into the airy stables as Alfie finishes up a good chuckle. With the flip of a switch, light floods the barn, the center aisle, the stables. Both birds take in a long breath, breathing in the sweet scent of hay. "Ain't it beautiful," RaneBeau whispers.

"Come on, let's get these name tags put in place," Alfie says as he hands RB half the stack. On opposite sides of the barn, stalls are assigned to the racers of the 2014 Milonga Derby

Shackleford

More Than Ready

Verrazano

Paynter

Lookin at Lucky

Stay Thirsty

Gemologist

Take Charge Indy

ArchArchArch

Giacomo

Bodemeister

Drosselmeyer



The swishing of RaneBeau's silk pants can be heard all the while as the task is completed.

Come visit me, RaneBeau & BODEMIESTER, Ready to DERBY!.

  I Think It Will Be Alright....
....Let's shut everything off & unplug things. Okay, who's first? Sam turns just in time to be knocked down and run over by the Scruffy Birds racing their way over to the apple/jello bucket!

You go first, No no no, YOU go first Okay I'LL go first! Pierce is in the bucket quickly and harpoons an apple with his long beak. Meadowlark does the same. Each one until the last, little Chipper who's too little to attempt this but know that apple will go a long way with the Mrs. at his new nest. Sam stands him aside and goes in for the last apple. He comes back up, not too terribly messy but still has some on his nares and beak. Here ya go, Chipper.

Everyone line up. Miss Chyna will help you wipe off. The Scruffy Birds happy to have Miss Chyna help them get the jello off.

Good Day Sunshine


Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

I need to laugh, and when the sun is out
I've got something I can laugh about
I feel good, in a special way
I'm in love and it's a sunny day

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

We take a walk, the sun is shining down
Burns my feet as they touch the ground

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

Then we lie beneath a shady tree
I love her and she's loving me
She feels good, she know she's looking fine
I'm so proud to know that she is mine

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
