Candyland performance: Round six

Every class is important in a seven class division, but clearly the most important performance class at Candyland Live was Round Six - PINK! 
Candyland Live performance judge and pink lover extraordinaire, Tiffany Purdy
I knew I had to do something really big and really amazing for this class, so I got out all my pink tack, dolls and props and put them in a pile on my kitchen table. The pile was much bigger than I'd expected.

"Hmmmm," I thought. "This looks like enough tack for a dozen horses. There are no size limits at Candyland. Maybe a street parade group?"

I started tacking.

Three hours later, I was still tacking.

In the end, my Think Pink street parade entry consisted of fourteen horses,
one mule,
one unicorn

twelve dolls,

four dogs, 
one ATV,
one manure cart,
one raccoon,

one tortoise...

and too many pink bows to count.
It took up an entire table.
It was a pinksplosion that may never be matched.
And the tagged model? Well, that was Tickled Pink, of course!
There aren't a lot of people for whom I would tack up sixteen models, but this is definitely one of them.
Love you, Tiffany!

    1. George takes a selfie at every show. It's become a trademark of sorts. Lol.
