If all goes as planned, this post will publish while I’m flying back across the pond. It’s always sad to say goodbye to travelling, but I am excited to be home, looking forward to a wonderful summer with a lot of jumping and other fun.
I’ve been following a bunch of horse picture tumblrs lately (a dangerous habit!) and I ran across this awesome picture. This horse looks stunningly like my snotty little model pony, Alpo. I wish I’d had this picture for a reference when I was working on him!
Want to drool over some pretty ponies yourself? Fall down this here rabbit hole- but don’t blame me for any lost productivity How about some beautiful models? Jennifer Buxton has been photographing and cataloging her amazing collection.
Things have been quiet (well, silent) on the hobby front since I’ve been in Cabo San Lucas for the past week. I got home late last night and am working to catch up on housekeeping (cat hair everywhere), email, and work. I’m really looking forward to getting some craft time this evening, if possible.
I also have some exciting news to share from a show on Feb. 7th. I was a little bummed to have missed the show myself, but not too sad…. after all, I was splitting time between these two spots:
Heated pool and hot tub with swim-up bar
Lands End and the Sea of Cortez
Yeah, life was pretty rough. Once the bar ran out of strawberries. Also, I ate my weight in tacos.

When the first two divisions finished up, we moved on the OF Plastic and Custom halter divisions. There were lots of gorgeous ponies out on the tables and made me itch to start painting again. I’ve got two horses in prepping stage that refuse to be ready, but every prepping session gets me closer (I hope).
Check out some of the shiny on parade, and a few ribbons for my horses too
My travels this spring mean I’m missing a number of live shows, so I made a special effort to get the Ring in the New Year live show. This show was held in one of most interesting venues yet- a huge woodworking garage!
The show was all minis (perfect for me!) and had four division running two at a time. First up was OF China and CM Resin/Advanced CM/CM Glaze. I only had a few horses in those classes. My one ribbon was a third for my new Clydesdale foal, which was pretty nice since I’d hurried to finish her for this show.
Check out some of the other beauties on display that morning:
The OF Performance division was on Sunday along with the custom halter divisions. This is always a brilliant choice by the show holder because it means you don’t have to choose between showing your horse in halter or performance. I was busy showing in the multiple halter divisions, but I still managed to snap a few pictures of the cool stuff happening the in the OF Performance division.
This is the last of my NW Congress pictures posts, and I also threw in some of the misc. pictures I had from the vintage classes, OF Halter, Open AR, and other fun.
As you may have noticed I’ve had no time for blogging recently- I’ve been working a lot, riding my horse every week (whee!), and trying to keep life in order as we head into the holidays and the traveling and other business they bring. I do have a few little projects in the works, though- some stuff for me and some more highly prioritized presents. I’ve been taking some in progress pictures and hopefully I’ll have a moment this week to post them.
