Saturday was the NYB, usually the only show I make it to in the year, & as always I had a great time! This was the 8th year for this show, & I have been to each & every one of them. It has grown over the years to become quite impressive & this year's edition was no exception. Soo many drool-worthy ponies!
I had a good show & my ponies made me proud, winning several divisional champs & reserves & three over alls as well! My various sales Aggies & Sundaras got a good deal of attention with a couple folks really holding back on taking one home with them (hope y'all come back later, she's waiting for you! ;) ), & a Mini Elnathan finally found his new home at this show.
I always proxy for my friend Jo, & her horses kicked butt this year! Below is an album of just her various horses (which were also in the above show album).
For some years now I have donated a CM to the NYB Raffle. For this year, Chesna, one of the two show holders, asked if I would paint a Mini Amir Jamaal from the collection of the late Mary Sue Barnum & I agreed. I don't usually do an overly all out detailed paint job on raffle pieces, but I made an exception with this guy as he is in memory of my friend. I really fell in love with him & even put in a load of tickets for him myself!
The raffle raised $350 for Our Mims, $350 for Re Ride, & the extra from the proceeds were donated to the church which has housed the NYB all these years.
I would like to thank ALL of the judges for their time! Without you there woud be no show! I would also like to thank Chesna & Chunk for holding such a wonderful show all these years. Next year the NYB will be under new management, you guys deserve the break!
Thanks for reading all! Cheers!
