It was at this show last year that I returned to showing and I haven't looked back since.
This year was a little better than last year, but not by much. Resin and custom were both all scales together, which makes it a little hard to get the littles noticed. But this is life and often happens when showing micros, so I'm slowly getting used to it and taking anything I get with a smile.
Custom was medium sized and resin division was pretty big. I got a few nan cards and some of the new horses got in the breed ring for the first time. Overall it was a mixed show, but it was still good to get out and enjoy the day.
Here are the Resin results (I seem to have misplaced the custom results)
Da Vinci - 6th Morgan
Charmed I'n Sure - 6th American Gaited
Cardano - 1st & NAN Paso/Peru

But the best part of the day was at lunch. This show was participating in the Breyer Live Show Benefit Program, so there was a Vulcan there. This show did it last year as well and had Reno, but I wasn't drawn. I was just chilling and eating my lunch and I hear my name. I looked up and they were holding Vulcan up and saying that I was drawn for him!!! I just about fell over. I couldn't believe that I was drawn for him!! It still doesn't seem all that real. I don't collect traditionals, so I wasn't sure what to do with him. The show host asked if I was ever going to sell him to let her know because she really loved him. About a 2 weeks ago I decided that it was time to let someone else love him. He was one of those models that I would leave sitting on the shelf because I didn't want him to get scratched or damaged, so he was always kept wrapped up in his protective case and lots of bubble wrap. I listed him and he sold, which turned out great because he paid for almost all of my trip to Kentucky!
Anyways, enjoy some pics I took of Vulcan. He really was a very nice looking horse with super soft dapples and a beautiful color. I will miss seeing him from time to time, but I'm really glad that someone got him that will be able to enjoy him more.
