After attending the spectacular and massive Rocky Mountain Spring Fling, attending June Bug was a refreshing change of pace. A much smaller show, June Bug was split into two days and I attended the first day, which highlighted minis, artist resins, customs and chinas. Don't let the size fool you; some of Colorado's best were at this show in Divide.
I brought along my modest show string and was happy to finally abandon my sofa blanket for a proper tablecloth in a dark blue that matches my studio colors.
In each division I found eye candy as well as a few horses that needed to come home with me, like that gorgeous HR quarter horse.
Minis were most certainly out in force, especially in the custom division, where they often out numbered the big boys in classes like CM Stock.
The custom call-back table was certainly full of eye candy. June Bug featured a condensed class list in the custom division (for example, all pony breeds of all scales showed together in one class) which meant every horse on that table was a first or second place winner vying for one of only two call-back placings: overall grand and overall reserve grand. Our judge for this division was Karen Gerhardt, well known for her china work as well as her sculpting for Breyer.
Reserve Grand Champion CM went to Tequila Sunrise owned by Teresa Fedak, a lovely custom on the Stage Mom mold.
And Grand Champion Overall CM went to my Stablemate Valegro CM, BMS Serkan.
