Over the next of couple days, I will share posts highlighting all the awesomeness of The Jennifer Show in Aurora, Colorado, 2019. Today's post will feature some top highlights and exceptional mini entries. Part two will feature top artists and the eye-catching large scale customs. Part three will highlight performance.
The Jennifer Show is hosted by two Colorado hobbyists and longtime artists, Jennifer Buxton and Jen Scott.The show hall was huge, with about 80 entrants from all over the US, Canada and Europe. The level of competition was just as fierce as the North American Nationals (NAN) and with placings only going 1st-4th, it was an honor just to place.
Speaking of placing, the Jennifer Show gave medallions instead of ribbons. Blue (in assorted shades) medallions were 1st place, red (to almost pink) was 2nd, purple was 3rd, and green was 4th. Larger white medallions were given to section champs/reserves and mini Anise, sculpted by Jen Scott, was award to division overall grand/reserve.
That was pretty awesome to see (I even came home with a few medallions) but my favorite part of the show was the minis.
And there. Were. So. Many. Minis.
This mini-only shower's table was a dream goal for many of us!
My two Arabian stallions placed in their class together, with one winning a NAN card in workmanship.
Then I drooled over the rest of the entries in the class.
The CM Mini Andalusian/Lusitano class was so insane from the dominance of one mold that it might have well been called, the Alborozo class. Same might have well been said for Other Spanish/Mix.
Minis were also representing in a super competitive, all-scales performance division.
But I think my favorite mini performance was this set-up, simply because of one tiny detail.
