Oh no, I forgot to add this bit!

A few years ago, my half-brother committed suicide. We found out the night before we were due to drive to Sydney so me and Wildey could try out for the NSW Mounted Games squad. The next morning we woke to find one of our dogs had died during the night. Needless to say we were devastated. It was a long drive to Sydney, and I was an emotional wreck all day. Wildey carriedme through those tryouts, and we were selected for the squad. I remember standing there with my dad and Wildey, all hugging each other and just crying our eyes out when we found out I had gotten in.

Ugh. Now I am crying! Horses. What would we do without them.

Well, after much deliberation, I've decided on my winners. Everyone had such brilliant entries, it is fantastic to see how much horses mean in all of our lives. Choosing the winners in this competition was harder than I thought, as there were quite a few standout submissions. The placings are as follows, however because of how difficult a decision this was, I have also slipped a couple of extra prizes in to those who I was really struggling between on decisions!


1st Place (Head study pastel portrait): Faye and Stan. I couldn't go past your entry, Faye you made me tear up reading about Stan and how much he meant to you. A worthy winner! I will send you an inbox shortly regarding your prize - congratulations :)

2nd Place (AU$70 Horse & Hound Artistry gift voucher): Jessicapworkman and Ayla. I will inbox you details of your prize shortly. Congratulations :)

3rd Place (AU$40 Horse & Hound Artistry gift voucher): HowClever and Trojan. I will inbox you details of your prize shortly. Well done :)


And the 'runner ups' - I had such a hard time choosing between everyone, and the following two entries really caught my attention, so congratulations to:
-Bandy and Taj
-Wild_Spot and Wildey
I will inbox you both with your prize details :)

Well done everyone, it was a difficult contest to judge!

Glad to hear Faye And sorry it's taken a while - I had a couple to do at once and was waiting on more postage material so now that they're all together, they'll be posted out to everyone tomorrow :)

Preferably by October at the latest, I'm starting to get quite a few bookings coming in for Christmas, plus the time needed for postage.
If payment was an issue - I will work off a deposit to cover the material costs, and am happy to accept a payment plan, however cannot send the portrait until paid in full.

Why Ri and Ginger...

I think Ri and ginger should win because they show the truest form of love. COMPLETE TRUST. Ginger is about, we think 16. She is a rescue we got 3 weeks ago. She really loves my 2 year old Ri,and he really loves her. Hopefully she will heal completely and he will have his longtime buddy to learn how to ride. I would loveto havethe portrait to oneday explain to him what true love is......
