A couple of years ago, she got a makeover of sorts when I decided to finally fix her badly painted mane and tail.
Since then, she's gone to a few live shows and I think she had gotten NAN qualified again.
She was featured here in my blog on another occasion, with a batch of old custom horses I've done.
Upon moving to Japan, I thought my days of live showing were done - at least for a while. So I decided to get back into photo showing.
|Wild Honey's new show picture|
Her photo show debut was at the April 2016 MEPSA Mini Specialty Show where she placed 2nd (of 5) in Other Gaited Breed, 4th (of 8) in Other Natural Color, and 6th (of 10) in Headstudy, It wasn't a fantastic result, but her 2nd place finish meant that she was one of the 5 that I could have sent to the Championship show, if I had been brave enough to try for it.
A few weeks ago, I mailed out pictures for the August 2016 Mini Specialty, and yesterday - right after our return from our big Tokyo trip - I saw the results!
Light Type Mare - 10th (of 75)
Other Pure/Mixed Gaited - 1st (of 15)
RESERVE CHAMPION SPANISH/GAITED BREED
Other Natural Color - 1st (of 12)
Workmanship-Repaint Only(Including Etched) - 4th (of 125!)
Headstudy - 4th (of 16)
I am SO happy with how this little girl did in her latest show! And yes, this time she WILL be going to the Championship show, next year. :)
