The tact of judges

Captain Guy Lucas, who judged hunters in the first half of the 20th century, finished judging a class and left the ring.  He was accosted by a peeress, cross because her hunter had not been placed.  "You," she told Captain Lucas, "should be judging cows, not horses!"

"Yes ma'am," said Captain Lucas.  "And if I had you in front of me I should give you the first prize!"
