I don't believe it is poor etiquette, but I personally think a button down should be worn in the show ring. Some of our county fairs are required to wear a t-shirt that is provided. They have several sponsers on the back of the shirts. Maybe you could advertise like that??
Obviously nothing can be done about an animal that is branded. I was referring to the showman, and if it was appropriate to wear a starched, collared shirt with ranch I.D. on it. I have always been of the opinion that it was in poor taste. Just my opinion, and wondered what others thought.
Personally, I think Australian is on the right track, although wearing a uniform might not be quite what our girls with their sequins, rhinestones, and hot pink show sticks would like to see. -g-
Thanks all for your comments.
I have another question on fly bites, and will try to find a different forum to post.
