If my Facebook feed is any indication, the model horse hobby is currently experiencing a period of extreme drama and negativity. In an effort to lighten the mood, today's post is all sunshine, rainbows and awesome performance pictures. Many thanks to Anne Field for allowing me to share her photos the Quabbin Valley Performance Open show, which was held last Saturday in Spencer, Massachussetts.
I'm starting with Kate Dwyer's Aeorosmith, mostly because I love everything about this entry. Everything!This entry has a pretty mule and a pretty jump. I love it.
I also love this roany pony with his cute little ear bonnet.
This horse is extremely cool, and his doll is riding very well. Yay, it makes me so happy to see a huntseat doll sitting in a forward position!
A games entry with a model model horse? Yes, please.
This is just cute.
Here's a really elegant harness entry...
and an adorable little MoNeigh.
I love the burst balloon bits in this mounted shooting entry.
I also love these cattle numbers.
Here's a good entry with good documentation.
And here's that pretty mule with those pretty poles again.
This horse is gorgeous...
and the colors in this entry look really, really good together.
and a really cool Extreme Cowboy type entry.
In honor of Mackenzie, I'm closing the post with a 1:0 scale round of Dogspotting. There's one.
Close-up because his face is cute.
This entry has two dogs...
and this one has five.
Here's the unofficial QVPO Dogspotting champion with six dogs. Woot!
Well, I don't know about anyone else, but I feel better now. Thanks again to Anne and congratulations to all the amazing showers at QVPO. Those were some awesome entries.
