IHSA has been going great this year! We had our first Hunt Seat show of the year the first weekend of November and it was awesome. I got 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th! I am so close to pointing up and qualifying for Regionals this year!!!!! Western has been going fantastically!!!!! We had our 3rd show of the season the 2nd weekend of November and I got 1st and 2nd!!! I am super close on pointing up and qualifying for Western as well!!!! We were not able to go to the second Hunt Seat show of the season due to the amazing trip to Worlds, so I am done until Feb.
Worlds was the greatest trip ever!!! I learned so much while I was there. I can't wait to go back next year!!!!! We got to watch the Open Jr. Trail Finals, Jr. Hunter Under Saddle Finals and lots of cattle events. I got some awesome ideas for my next trail obstacle.
On the model horse front, I got the Cm G4 Dressage horse and the AR painted. They will be on their way home tomorrow. I got signed up for the next 2 live shows. One is Cm and AR and the other is all OF. I'm really excited not only show show my 2 newly painted horses, but to show the smallest addition to my string.
I finally started working on the Cm mini mule foal that I started months ago. He still doesn't have a tail, but he has new ears and his "test" coat of paint. I decided to paint him black, because I found the cutest reference pic ever of a black mini mule foal. He still needs all the detail work, but I like him so far. He is the first foal, mule and smallest Cm I have ever done. I don't normally show foals because they are too small and I tend to lose them, but I saw that little body and just couldn't resist.
Here is a WIP pic of him. Let me know what you think!
