I have come home from the live, re-invigorated, inspired and ready to hack, melt and sculpt every plastic pony in the house.
I also came home to NAN. Live streamed on the web, I was glued to it, as this was the very first time any of my CMs were going to be there.
I was so very glad I did as Komos got a Top 10 in Light/Gaited/Spanish Foals
Komos is now on his way home where he will do the show circuit here, then onto a special new home.
I adore Live show photos, pounce on them like a kid onto lollies. So I feel a little guilty I have not shared these before now.
I arrived at the show early, in fact I was the very first one there, which is not very conducive to rattly nerves, but I had nothing to worry abut, the ponies did me proud.
Padrig and his handler Hamish won their class, which was a miracle, as the hall was 1 degree Celsius and the wax was behaving awkwardly in the cold.
In this photo are the three Totilas CMs, the classic Arabian and Padrig
Katharina came 4th in her Owners own work class, Pluto once again snagging the blue.
Next were the CM breed.
Hermes won his Sport Breed class
Katharina came second in her Arabian class, beaten by a rather stunning WG
Colour classes were up.
Katharina was beaten into second by the Wintersong below in grey, Pluto coming in third.
Damocles won his dilute class, then came reserve to the Wintersong.
Damocles then went onto take out Grand Champion Custom Trad/Classic
Damocles day was not done yet though. Much to mine, and his new owners delight, the boy went onto take out Supreme Champion Exhibit TR/CL of the show.
Chuffed to bits!
I brought all the boys to the show (though Heracles did not enter any classes) here they are all together with the original.
You can see all the photos I took on the day here;
What a day!
More soon ...
