I left of a HUGE update earlier today (yesterday I guess now) when I posted all that below. I owe some people some heavy duty thank you’s!!!
I have to laugh b/c I spent all this time going wild and inadvertently left out the more important half (imo!) of my items I needed to get to… lets start with thank you’s ...
from NWC; Mel Miller – bless you for your help at the last minute with EVERYTHING.
From DKL; Heather Roell, you are SUCH a saint and really too sweet to be so concerned. It all worked out! J I had a great time talking to you too & hear it was a good show so RELAX! J
Jackie’s little “Otto” that I painted for her a few years back now also didn’t do so shabby the following weekend at NEMHC… ;)
Another winner I spied in the top results @ NEMHC British Pony Breeds (18 entries)
- Bruce (SMB “Otto” painted by me and owned by Jackie Arns) placed first in breed and workmanship under Jen Al-Beik and Sonya Johnson and took home a Top Ten in Workmanship :)
… I didn’t spy any pics showing him WITH the ribbons but here he is getting ready to fight the bigger fellows I guess :) http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/2538460230055238779qBELJf (added on! :) I just got this sent to me from Jackie-->
Also at NEMHC (I really REALLY didn’t look at the tables but I did recognize this name in the results!) J is that Ann Harris’s always dapper “Clever Hans” didn’t do so bad in a class of 22 “European Warmblood” entries for both halter and workmanship either imo. .. http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/2515042920055238779xMKaGk ;) (I so dig him and he has gone “all the way” in performance I hear too?)
Also of note for a winner is that at
Thoroughbred/Standardbred (11 entries)
- Flame (CMc) owned by Corrie McDermott & painted by Danelle Gatcombe (pics of him here http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc35/intothesunstudio/new%20models/flame005.jpg and here; http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc35/intothesunstudio/new%20models/flame004.jpg ) took first in workmanship under judge Karen Pajack
And my last thank you is that I really need to thank LISA again (miss Gruetter is a world of help too) for showing Vanessa’s proxy horse there at HVC. And also for her help with a lot of last minute things that weekend... you know m'dear - thank you! :D
(((HUGS to everyone for their help!!!))) J
Righto, so I wanted to get this up tonight asap.. even though it’s a little choppy and might not make sense when I look at it tomorrow. But MAN did I feel bad about leaving off the thank you’s most especially! Yipes! (these things come to you when you are FAR away from computers of course) ;)
