Winter PonyBytes Fun Photo Show results

Yesterday was results day for Erin Corbett's Winter PonyBytes Fun Photo Show.
This quirky show was put together to debut Elizabeth LaRose's brand new photo show hosting site, PonyBytes.
It wasn't love at first sight, at least not for me. It took me longer than I care to admit to figure out the upload and entering process. Fortunately, Liz and her crew were on hand to answer questions and offer support. With their help, I managed to enter a whole bunch of photos.
The pay off for all that work came yesterday. Results were uploaded to the site in real time. The "Latest Results" report displayed full results for each class, complete with links to the winning entries. 
The "My Results" report displayed personalized results for each entrant. How wonderful to get all this information with a single keystroke!
And yes, I did have a really good show! My horses swept the top prizes in the Barn Division. Beep was Overall Reserve Champion with her rerun pony parade photo...
and Love N Stuff was Overall Champion on the strength of her "Deck the Stalls" and "Pony Club" entries.
I reused the photo for the Mares in Black fun class at the Mares in Black Spooktacular Photo Show in the "Performing Mares" class in the Mares in Black division. This time, it was a winner, and also the Overall Champion! 
Finally, my sweet, little Frankie deer was the Overall Reserve Champion of the Winter Fantasy and Animal Fun division.
I know someone who hand raised an abandoned fawn. She told me that they like the same food as horses, but their mouths are very small so you have to cut up the carrots and apples. I had a lot of fun making Frankie a proper deer meal, and I was probably more delighted with this placing than any of the others.
Thank you, Liz, for all your work in creating PonyBytes, and  thank you, Erin, for putting this show together. Thanks also to the judges - Erin (again), Kenzie, Heather, Jackie and Kristen. The Winter PonyBytes Fun Photo Show really was a lot of fun!


  1. Is you deer an HR? The finish does look like HR!

    1. I was assuming she's a Made in Japan, but I really don't know. I bought her at a Fort Collins antiques mall thirty years ago!
