Judging eyebrows? Please tell me this is an April fools in November

I just read this. https://horsenetwork.com/2022/11/eyebrow-game-now-included-in-judging-criteria-for-2023-showmanship-and-in-hand-classes/

It’s a joke right? Has to be a joke.

Yes, it’s a joke. It’s a humor column.

Pssst! It’s in the satire section. :smile:

Some very funny stuff there!


Oh, thank God!

Ever since I read a discussion about one competitors make up being the factor that the judge used to decide placings in a tight class I have been wary…

I thought the way it was written, brilliantly, it was a satire, but you never can be sure these days.

Thank you for allowing me to breathe, call myself an idiot for not “getting it” and moving on.

Shame this one wasn’t funny, or maybe I’m suffering from a lack of sense of humour lately. Too much stress, not enough sleep…like anyone can see your eyebrows under a cowboy hat.


I read some of it and I didn’t realize it was a humorous column either :neutral_face:

I guess it could be taken as a good suggestion if the one showing is blessed with that one continuous eyebrow that spans both eyes and in between?
