Horses N Hangars resin foals

Yesterday's Horses N Hangars Live was the first show I'd been to in more than a year that didn't have a performance division.  Without tack and props to keep me busy, I had a lot of time to take a lot of pictures.  This is the first of many groups taken during the Resin Halter division.

There were six Foal classes, including two for spotted and non-spotted stock foals.  This is the spotty group!
Did you happen to notice that huge foal on the far right side of the photo?  That's a Kitty Cantrell resin officially named Raspberry but more commonly referred to as "Foalzilla."  Teresa Fedak is the lucky owner of this big baby.
There were a large number of haired resins and customs at this show.  Most of them belonged to the mother and daughter team of Christine Holt and Tara Oliver. 
Little Poquito. 
My little Sweet Side won the red second place ribbon.  Sweet Side is a Carol Williams Parrs Dream Doll that was customized and partially painted by Simrat Khalsa.  I bought her as a project horse and finished her myself.
Sometimes big winners come in small packages.  I wish we had posed this one next to Foalzilla!
Stock Foals were followed by Sport Foals.  My pair managed to nab both the top placings.
I expect Rave Review to do well, but I was quite surprised with Wonderscope's good showing.  This is a Jennifer Kroll Svelte resin, slightly customized and painted by me.  He is named after the children's museum in Kansas City. 
The Spanish/Gaited Foal class was dominated by Strawberry Jam resins.  This little chestnut is New York Doll.  She was painted by Susan Hurst and belongs to me.
This Suki resin was winner of the Light Breed Foal class. 
The Foal division wrapped with a combined Draft/Pony/Other Foal class.  
Gimme S'more continued danced to victory in that one and was eventually named Champion Resin foal.
Five Buxton babies on the Champion Call Back table.  Sweet Side ended up with the Reserve and my day was off to a very good start!
Next up--photos from the Resin Light and Sport divisions!
