  1. WOW!! Roundapony looks amazing. I wish I could have made it to the show. I just wish I was at the show to see Victrix. Her details are one-in-a-million.

    1. Good eyes! Nicolo placed second in the Carriage Breed class. One of my other new horses, Sangria, also brought home a red ribbon. Poor Queen B was shut out, but that QH class was crazy competitive. Actually, the whole resin division was super tough. I was really happy to receive as many ribbons as I did, regardless of color!

    1. The trophy model is sold, but my judges' model is still up for grabs. He's a glossy paint ISH (same pattern as the trophy) with windswept mane and the Morgan tail. Hopefully, I'll have him listed on MH$P later today. Tried to do it a few minutes ago but the photo uploader was giving me fits! :/
