August 28, 2008:  Warrenton Horse Show, Warrenton, Virginia

           BellaDonna Mahogany was shown in the Purebred Cleveland Bay In-Hand Class.  Mahogany placed third out of seven Cleveland Bays.  The weather the day of the Warrenton Show was rain.  Lots of rain.  When the Clevelands finally entered the ring, there was a slight break in the rain. For Lady Leone, this was her second show and the sight of umbrellas and raingear was definitely a worry for her. 

           Epiphanybay Celebration, a 3 1/2 month old Cleveland Bay /Thoroughbred colt made his show debut at Warrenton.  Although he did not place, he took all of the new events in stride.
