Colorado Kick-off resins, light breeds

The resin division of last Saturday's Colorado Kick-off Show opened with a big class of twenty two Arabians.  I had three horses on the table, but only Rune found his way into the NAN cards.
This little Nahar was the big winner with a first place ribbon for breed and a second place ribbon for workmanship.
Here's the Arabian that took the top workmanship honors.  This lovely boy is a Karen Gerhardt Optime resin owned by Teresa Fedak. 
The Half Arabian/National Show Horse class was next.  My Carol Williams Park Arabian, Andromeda Melody, brought home two good ribbons.  
The breed section of the Morgan class was won by my own UVM Right Royal.  He's the pretty bay UVM Yesteryear on the left.
And then there was the Spanish class...  That one was won by a horse whose name is NOT Fred!
My pretty black Dozen Roses by Melissa Mistretta placed second under both judges in the American Gaited class. 
He was beaten by this really fancy Sarah Rose Mindy resin painted by Sheila Bishop. 
There was only one entry in the Non-American Gaited class and it was accompanied by some nifty electronic documentation.
Some of the entries in the Other/Mixed Light Breed class included this Santa Fe Renegade resin...
and Val McEntee's gorgeously haired Eberl Grace. 
Here's one end of the Resin Light Breed call back table...
and here's a shot of the Braymere section! 
The Light Breed workmanship title went to the Mindy...
with Optime in reserve. 
The Light Breed Breed Championship certificated was awarded to that horse with the disputed name...
with the mini Nahar in reserve.
Stock horses and sport horses are next!


  1. Congrats on the wins Fred! :D *sneaks him an apple when you aren’t looking*

    Achem, yes… *innocent whistles* It looks like it was a beautiful show and thanks for postings pics—I may not be able to make it to live shows in person, but I can certainly drool over them from afar! :)

  2. woohoo Fred! :D

    Teresa's Optime "Asylum" is one of those I'd steal if I could.

  3. I'm glad someone is enjoying the pictures because I still have lots left. I always take too many when I'm not showing performance. Not enough to do, I guess!

    Teresa Fedak has such a deep and varied collection that I suspect anyone would be able to find something of hers they wanted to steal. For me, it's Polliwog.

  4. You're killing me here making me wait for the resin foal results!

    Congrats on all the well earned wins. You really have a lovely collection, and I like many others, enjoy seeing the results. It's been well over two years since I've made it to a live show - yikes! Always fun to live vicariously. :)

  5. Ha ha, Danielle! Don't worry, it will be worth the wait!


  6. oh, I want Polliwog too. Those are my two fave resins... Then, I could happily roam her plastics and clinkies...
