A Fantastic Day!

Yesterday was the yearly New Years Show. Even though I've been feeling ill and tired I have a bunch of wonderful friends that pulled together and helped me show Pixie, even when I was wondering if I should. Not feeling well and all... so all I really had to do was put her on the trailer and friends took care of the rest.

I had very low hopes for her as the show went on. The judge was pretty strict and few ponies got gold, most got silver and a few even got bronze. So I was getting to understand I would get my first Bronze (Pixie has only ever gotten silvers)... but oh well, she was here, I might as well show her.
I am so happy I did. She was on fire. She flew around the ring in the most fantastic trot I have ever seen her do. She was shiny and sparkely with white socks and lots of charm in her eye. She wond GOLD and was class winner, and was qualifed for the youngstock champion ring.... Once again she excelled and won this, bringing her to the best in show final. I was over the moon. My itty bitty girl was amazing. In the best in show ring she managed to be picked as Reserve Best in Show, leaving alot of the adult ponies behind. I was nearly in tears and the applause she got was heartwarming!


Here she is with her ribbons :) My little darling!
I'm still floating on happiness by the way!
