I want to go so bad, but unfortunately I will be bringing home by new husky puppies the first week in April so heading to a show that soon after isn't in the cards for me. No puppy sitter yet.

Are you still looking for judges? I might be willing to make the drive! PM me if you are still looking for some.

Poll added to the FB site!

Would you prefer to keep the OF Divisions to Breyer/Other and Stone separate, or switch to OF Trad/Classic and OF Mini with Stone, Breyer, and Other Plastic all mixed together??

Mindy, are you keeping this to harness racing because that's the track you're at, or are you willing to accept donations of a Thoroughbred/flat racing variety?

I wish I could bring the bring the puppies, but 3 month old puppies and model horses do not mix. I will post pictures and they can be there in spirit. Have fun with the show. Hopefully I will be able to make the next one. I am excited to see shows back in MN.

No, we are "Off To The Races" Racing overall :) My friend just works for Running Aces, and told me about the great space they have. :) And it's a little closer to me distance wise than our TB track. And such an accessible room for what showing requires!

I would very appreciate any donations! :hugg Thank you so much for offering!!! Mindy

I didn't see the poll on the FB page.

I'd prefer Stone/Breyer split, but it's not a dealbreaker if it's not, it just means I'll bring fewer horses.

Yeah I deleted it when I got some opinions. I still have quite a lot of Stone classes in with the rest of the OF division to hopefully help out. :) It seemed more people wanted OF mini and then Stone classes thrown in with the OF Trad. I didn't separate them out of the minis though.

I posted this on Facebook too, but out of curiosity, is there an actual class for Carriage Breeds? There's the Other Pure/Mixed Draft/Pony/Carriage, but are all Carriage Breeds supposed to go in that class?

WPDR

Got it fixed but it will upload tomorrow when my web mistress is at work. :)

Also I sent in the application for Breyers Show Benefit Model! :woot Fingers crossed we get picked for that gorgeous hunka horse!

Ok I made a couple small tweaks to the Classlist. No New Classes. I changed "OF China" to "OF Non Plastic" to end any confusion of where to put OF resins.

Then After each OF Non Plastic, and CM Glaze Division they will each be awarded Overall Awards. As will OF Breyer Collector, and OF Stone Collector, they will each get their own Overall Awards. It was bugging me that I had it so they would go against each other for the Overall Awards.

So I fixed it. So the only changes are the way they get their Overall Awards. The more the merrier eh? :) Does this make sense? I will get the website updated ASAP, my web mistress is currently playing in the sun and sand so she is unavailable.

Question -- do you want Stones only in the Stone classes or are those just for the larger classes/ones that don't fit in with the others? For instance, there's a Morgan class- do Stone Morgans go there or in the Stone Other Pure Mix/Light/Spanish/Gaited since there's not a Stone Morgan class? I'm assuming you want them kept strictly in the Stone classes, but thought I'd check for sure.

WPDR
03-21-2017, 06:04 PM
If there isn't a specific Stone class, yup put them in whatever class they will fit in. I just tried to break up the classes that would be overflowing with horses. :) Deb can split the classes up more also if she feels the need.

OK, sounds good and that it might be fluid so I need to pay attention at the show :-)

Next year I might make the Stone OF a separate division again. (the way I prefer) I will be watching to see what needs changing for next year. :)

Is the classlist on the website the final version then, do you think?

Yes sorry for the update, but the only thing that was changed was switching champs and res champs to overall champs in the non plastic and collector. More prizes! :)

I want to sincerely thank each and everyone of you that came to our show! To our wonderful judges who had the difficult job of judging these knock out horses! You all brought your A game! And to Running Aces Harness Track and Casino! What a beautiful place to hold a show! It was PERFECT!! I hope to see you all back again next year!!! Pictures and results to come. My camera was DEAD at the end so the battery is charging. And today is my day off now. ;) Mindy

It was a blast Mindy! And I was very impressed with the venue! I'm happy with how my horses did and was drooling over so many pretties while I was there. I'm also stoked to have walked away with the American Pharoah pin from the raffle, I wanted it the second you showed pictures of it online. I keep looking at how shiny it is :)

Thank you for hosting such an awesome show! I'll be there next year for sure!
