Recently asked questions:
- CM/AR Mini division Mustangs go into Other Stock, whereas Spanish Mustangs go into the Spanish class
- There is now an added Miniature Horse class as these little guys technically don't belong in the pony classes. I received clearance to add this class per NAMHSA
- Clarification of divisions: Though they show with the same class list, Regular Run Breyers are a separate division from Special Run Breyers, as well as Peter Stone is its own special division (PS will not show with Breyers). Also, Custom models and Artist resins are their own separate divisions. However, Mini AR/CM are a single division. China will have OF China show separately from CM China, but they will have combined overall championship placings.
- YES, I am accepting raffle donations!
- You MUST have collectability information for a model to be judged in collectability. Only models that are realistic in color will be judged in halter classes. i.e. if you have a gold charm appaloosa Lady Phase, she would be judged in the appaloosa class for collectability only, not for breed. If you have a bay QH with no collectability information, it will be judged in breed only but not collectability. If you have a chestnut arabian with collectability information, it will be judged in both breed and collectability.
- I didn't consider "Other OF Plastic" in my divisions. We will place Hartlands with Breyer, and Copperfox or any other OF with Peter Stone
- Yes, OF China will be judged for collectability if you have collectibility info with the model
- OF Models: all sizes show together (no Trad vs SM splits)
