Hey all, anyone going to this show?

Here's the website, showholder is Cristy Brown (contact on the website)

http://modelhorsemania2011.yolasite.com/

And to add incentive... I'm donating a custom for the raffle ;) (and may be judging something)

I got my show packet yesterday and plan on going. Looking forward to it since Cristy didn't have it last year. Not enough shows in this area.

I sent in my $ so I'm definitely going. Cristy asked me for a donation so I've started a new etchie. Since the show will benefit the Jessamine County Animal Shelter the etchie will be a theme to go along with that. Also I started going through my models to pick out my show string and I've done some research on breeds. I hope I'll have time to get everything ready before March.

This is the custom etchie I'm donating for a raffle. Since the $ in going to benefit the local animal shelter I added cats, dogs and other little critters. Hopefully she'll be popular and raise a lot of money.

I got a call from Cristy last pm. Breyer sent a LIONESS!! to be raffled at the show. So glad I'm going!! It's just exciting to even get the chance to win a Lioness. Each paid participant gets one raffle ticket for the drawing and you have to be present to win. No buying extra tickets, no ticket for proxy showers or any one that didn't pay for a table. So at Model Horse Mania that's probably 40 - 45 entries.

Entry is paid for :)

The "Bribe the Showholder" class. I understand the idea, but no clue what to do with it.

Also,

What is the Irish Thumb Wrestling class?

That's great that MHM got approved for the Breyer Live Show Program! I'm not sure if I'll have an entry since I'm judging but I'd sure love to have a chance, she's lovely! :adore

I may have heard something about Jello thumb wrestling but that's too messy for me :P

Yup... Jello Thumb-Wrestling (in lime green jello of course) ;) That may or may not have been a result of my brainstorming... >.>

And yay on the Lioness! Cristy was hoping Breyer would approve the show.

I'm going to be there with my string of ponies and horses!! So stoked that I can go to this one after the earlier show here canceled.

Essentially, you present a gift for the Shelter (toys, food, beds, collars, etc. whatever you want) to Cristy, the Showholder, and then whoever she decides gave her the best gift gets a special prize! (and the Shelter totally wins ;) )

My entry fee gets sent in tomorrow.
I think I over-did it a little bit on the show string, though.

As of right now, 85 ponies are going. :hide

It's been forever since I have seen everyone.
That's what I get for only showing twice a year though!

Now I'm getting excited. I've chosen my show string (70 models total) and I have all my documentation ready. The donation is finished. This weekend I'm making out the tags. Quick question. For the collectibility classes do you have to assign a breed or just ID the model?

OMG, totally want to enter the raffle for him! But of course I'd want to paint him myself, so kind of hope he's not painted in time for the show. LOL!!!

So can outside folks buy tix? Or is the raffle only for showers? LMK!

Unfortunately, only those present may win. Cristy believes in people attending the show to actually have a shot at getting all the good stuff people donate, so she doesn't even do auctions or sell tickets online, etc. As far as getting painted before the show, Betsy Groff was suppose to, but she's only got one spare day this week to do it and likely won't afaik.

But I'll keep you in mind if I win ;)

That's no fair Cindy! You can make your customs all the time, some of us only get a few chances to get one :D

I have my reasons... mostly to win and give to Betsy as a Thank You for being so damn awesome and taking care of me/helping me out during my injury... and I can say that here because she doesn't go on Blab so Shhhhhhhh! I don't have time to make anything for her otherwise (nor me, really).

Well..
All was going well until I realized I needed to re=pack.. This is the 3rd time, and I refuse to do it anymore. :P

I have also been thinking about it, and I guess I will indeed bring a few ponies to sell.
I haven't grown as attached to my BF Volunteer Model from last year as I had hoped I would. And my matte pinto CC Shuffle is coming along to (hopefully) be given a new home.

Still looking forward to the weekend, and even the 2 1/2 hour drive!

Ok I'm feeling overwhelmed in the prescence of all this awesomeness! Do we need identification collectibility cards in OF breed classes? Thanks everyone, Kim

kara320
03-12-2014, 07:07 PM
They said that you wouldn't need cards for OF, just in the conductibility division.
:D

curlinfan

I asked the show holder, Cristy, about putting COA's, programs and other documentation of collectibility or rarity on the OF Halter classes and she said "NO". In the OF Halter classes the models are to be judged on the breed and condition. The only documentation acceptable is proof that the model is appropriate for the breed you have assigned to it. The COA's, event programs, ect. or only for the Collectibility Division. Hope that helps to clear things up.

Great Show!! Had a wonderful time yesterday and got to meet a couple of my fellow Blabbers in person. I got a division champ in OF Breyer Spanish and a Judges Choice Award for my BF Raffle Model Muse. The gal that judged the custom class even pointed out some of my etchies to the other showers and talked about how much she liked all the fine detail work on the models! Got 8 NAN cards and won a door prize. Really good day yesterday.
