I’ve been trying to wait patiently, and today the mailman delivered a very anticipated box- the results and prizes from the MEPSA Championship Show!
Even my husband, who is generally uninterested in hobby stuff, was gleefully helping me discover and unwrap the goodies. I meant to take pictures as I went, but it was just too exciting!
My horses did fabulously- those trophies were won by Kettil Blacksmith (Halter Grand Champion) and Nightfox (Performance Grand Champion). The green trophy on the right was won by Doublet (Halter Reserve Grand Champion). Judges Choice was Rumble Strip in my racing diorama. I got so many ribbons, the husband said that maybe they forgot to sort them and I just got the whole stack.
I won a lot of prizes and ribbons, but my favorite is a beautiful resin draft foal, First Draft. I’ve coveted this little filly since she was released by her sculptor, Marcy Osedo. She was generously donated to the MEPSA show by Dani Schacht.
First draft joins my other two resins, who also both happen to be mini drafts. I’m sensing a theme here!
I still have the wonderful Championship Show book to enjoy this afternoon on the plane to Spokane (we’re going for the weekend to visit a friend). And I wasn’t the only one who enjoyed the box’s arrival…
