Mini UpdateMINI UPDATE. Things are galloping along behind-the-scenes in preparation for the competition results this weekend. The judges have reviewed all stories and will meet this week to come to a consensus on the winners. That’s no easy task — there are so many AMAZING entries — but once it’s done, we’ll be prepping the winning stories for publication and gearing up for the big day.

  25. It does feel a bit strange here in Australia, it’s already the 12th, but I have to wait till the end of the day to see the results *sigh*. I think each second is lagging, annoying me and enjoying it haha.

  32. Thanks Terri Farley. I’m glad you enjoyed them

  33. MY paper was called Midnight Fire. It was about a Quarter horse named Midnight Fire, who was sold promptly (He was a famous breeding stallion) when the vet revealed to his selfish owners that Midnight had a problem going around caused by his rare blood type. He would not be able to breed much longer, unless they wanted him sick and in pain for the rest of his life. Then it goes on to tell about how he was sold at an auction, meanwhile a young couple are looking for a Quarter horse to but because they just had lost their elderly Quarter gelding recently. They discover him just as the auctioneer is about to yell “SOLD” to someone else. Then the couple looking for a Quarter horse arrives just in time, and they are able to hastily yell their bid. Midnight goes home with them, and meets their two sweet other horses name Nevada Sunshine, and Breaking Storm. I was very proud of my story. :)

  34. Cloud is free? What happened? Darn, I missed the news about him!!!

  35. Wow, how was he able to go back to living free?

    Have yall ever heard of It’s a website that sells all horse things. It’s really cool.

    Oh I just thought of something, Horse Feathers, and Wild Horse Feathers. Wow, what a coincidence :) Okay sorry it just came to mind :) Well, anyways, it’s a really cool site, thought someone may want to look at it. :)

    [Nevada Sunshine]

  36. Nevada Sunshine… yeah lol i was surpised when i saw that to.. they were some of the donators for the fiction compeition if you didnt know that already.


  37. Nope, I didn’t know. But they do have a lot of cool stuff don’t they?

  38. you know what would have been cool?? if we could get Breyer to donate for one of the competitions. i would seriously luv to win that! lol!

  39. Oh my gosh Lana, I love Breyer horses, and schleich horses too. They make awesome horses don’t they?

  40. Lana- I actualy do know someone in the Bryor horse buisness… maybe in the future we could have a art or poem competition. We’ll see when the time comes.. until then have a champion week!


  41. Wow I love Breyer and Schleich horses too!

  42. I don’t know HorseFeathers, art isn’t one of my strongest points, neither are poems, but I do have one (Just one) that I wrote about a horse that I find really good. Well, if the art was photography that’d be easier for me, I do have some pictures of my cats that are good (All thanks to my photogenic feline friends).

  43. I saw an adorable liver chestnut pony with a (Sort of) flaxen mane and tail. Really cute :) Then I also saw an iron gray horse, it was odd, because his mane was split in the middle, and spread on both sides of his head. Like a person’s hair. It was funny, I’ve never seen a horse with a mane like that before! He was very handsome though :)

  44. yeah or a photogrpahy comptition would be fun.. using photoshop to spruce it up as well. ;0) We’ll see as time gallops on
