2017 Miniature Horse World Winter 2017 - Page 35

9-  days of non-stop parties, get-togethers! Breakfast, afternoon deserts and evening dinners made this year’s show a constant social event. If you didn’t have fun and get full you weren’t trying! Thanks to all who volunteered and participated to make it happen. 10- days in August. And mother nature smiled down on Texas. Not hot, not too muggy, just right horse show weather! 27- a 27 year old gelding winning in Hunter? Fanfares Check My Label “Checkers” was Champion in the Youth Hunter 12 and under with Megyn Hall besting 30 entries! 48-  entries were in the Youth Hunter 13 -18, making it the largest class of the show. Amazingly, Sunny Balshaw had 4 of those entries, and each made Top Ten! Brook Wood also had 3 horses make Top Ten in that same class. Great job, ladies! 141-  Pictured is clipped horse number 100, but Brooke the Clipper Girl clipped 141 horses this year at World. Photos courtesy of Alison Stonecypher and Casey McBride.
