Hi, my wife (and a few others) have talked me into entering my horse in a televised contest not unlike Idol.
To qualify, they have a vote-in category on facebook, so I'm wondering if I could get some help!
(You'll see me in the appropriate attire in one picture). Even if you don't have time to watch the 6 minute video, you can vote for us. But if you've never seen a horse poop in a bucket on command, or share his lunch with a cat, or hand me my hat, etc. you might enjoy watching.
The voting starts today and only lasts a week.
If all goes well, we'll be on RFD TV this fall, and the winner's prize is a new horse trailer. I think Windchester would like that, so any help you can give us will be greatly appreciated, along with any suggestions for how I can get more support. If you could post to the appropriate social media, and get the link out, that'd be great.

Bad news about Kelly.. love that kid!! Get better quickly.
Toilet seat... maybe! The latest is he's learned how to "hold his breath" underwater. Horses don't do so naturally, but in order to get stuff from the bottom of a bucket, he does. I'd read about a horse who put on large exhibitions (around 1900http://www.beautifuljimkey.com/heroes.htm) and that was one of the things he had been trained over time to do. Windchester only took him a day or so to figure it out. He is seriously smart. Also he had eight years of college, but I doubt they taught that in rodeo school.
Not to beat what is, hopefully not a dead horse, here's a shorter, updated video which shows how special Windchester is.

Looks like we won't win first place, but 50 or so votes will put us in second place and the judges will certainly take that into consideration when they make their picks.
So, come on, what else do you have to do before tourney time?
