All news regarding the goings on of this competition can be found here.
The show is offically, completely over! So that mean NO MORE entries or extras will be accepted, unless you have come to me and we have worked out a small extension. But the only one who has done so is *painted-cowgirl as she has been away for quite a long time, so I saw it as fair only to give her until the mid-weekend. So from now on, ALL score cards are final, and will be slowly rolling in.
Thank you all for participating and don't forget to check in with #I-P-H-A if you wish to enter the Paint Horse Nationals. Results will be posted soon.
Okay lovelies, the deadline is upon us, and I am in the middle of accepting the entries that are sitting in the submission area.
Judging will now begin, and you will slowly see me uploading score cards. You it. will also get a grey/silver one for each of your horses, with their finals scores for the competition on it. This will make it easier to determine who is the Grand and Reserve Champion.
Concerning Late Entries; I WILL be taking them, but entries will be docked 2 points. These will be open until the 17th of April. I'll be taking extra image up until then too, and they will not be docked any points.
PLEASE NOTE!! With your entries, please include all Champion title wins, as well as 1sts, 2nds and 3rd Places. These will gain you extra points towards your end of competition score. I WILL NOT go hunting for them, it is up to you to link them all if you would like a chance at gaining extra points. If by the time all scores are up and winner are announced, you choose to have a little bitch fit about me not adding those extra points, then it is YOUR FAULT for not linking them to me. I'm doing this for your benefit guys. Don't abuse it.
Prizes will star to roll in to, so keep an eye on those. :3
I have decided to extend the deadline ONE WEEK. The new deadline is the 12th of April.
So the deadline has crept up on us, and is still April 5th. We have about 47 horses registered, and I've received entries for about 4. .___. Uncool guys, uncool.
SO! Get your butts into gear and start drawing, there are some great prizes up for grabs! I will extend the deadline a week or so if it comes down to it, but I certainly hope it doesn't.
10th February YES, but I promise, this will be the last.
Because I would like to think of this as a prestigious event, I've decided to allow other wins and placings count for extra points (a couple of people have brought this idea to me).
Grand, Reserve Champion & Other Titles: 5points
1st Places: 3points
2nd Places: 2points
3rd Places: 1point
ALSO!This show will be a qualifying show for the International Paint Horse Association's International Paint Horse Grand Finals. (It's a mouthfull, I know. xD) The group is new, but I am going to do my very best to get it out there. The show will be held at the end of this year through to the start of next. Prizes will be BIGGER than the ones here.
For more information, please check out #I-P-H-A, and this journal here [link] (Everything is still under construction, please bare with me.)
As the participants list grow each day, I've decided to extend the deadline one last time. The NEW deadline is April 5th. Plenty of time. :3
Recent disccussions have bought *x-XInsomniaX-x (formerly BullRdiningCowgirl) and I to an agreement. As the AQHA World Championships would like this show to be a qualifier, we have decided that it would be best for everyone to extend the deadline to the 17th of March. We were planning on extending it anyway. ^u^
ALSO! We've came up for a little bonus grabbage here. If you include either staff, or horses from either of our stables (Insomnia-The Insane Assylum, Me [Spur]-Shining Spurs Ranch), in your picture, or story of your entry or training and extra pictures, you will gain a bonus 2 points for that specific class. If it's in an extra picture, we'll just add it on to the first class you're entered in, according to the participants list. :3
Staff of The Insane Assylum;
.......Blade is a mid-height, with black hair and blue eyes. He has a sort of short emo-ish hair cut that sweeps before his eyes. His gorgeous lop sided grin can draw anyone in. He's a friendly guy, and is always looking for a chat, and new friends.
Creed Redfern(29)-Co-owner (Cousin to Blade)
.......Creed is rather different to Blade. He's tall and handsome, with naturally snow white hair with a silver tint to it. He has green eyes, and is more of the dark and brroding type. This, along with his eyes and hair, seem to make him rather attractive. He prefers to keep to himself, but is forever listening and watching, and will put in his say where he thinks it will do good.
.......Claire Vital(28)-English Manager
Claire is a soft girl. Her light brown hair and grey-blue eyes make her seem approachable and kind. She's mid-height, and never raises her voice. Many English horses have succeeded underneath her belt, but she's never afraid to give Western a go. Anyone can get along with Claire, and she's always putting others before herself.
.......Blu Sterling (23)-Western Manager
Blu is Cleo Ridge's darling cousin. They look very much alike, only Blu has lovely, vibrant green eyes, and no racoon tails in her hair, which is also two shades darker than Cleo's. She's an outgoing girl, and loves a chat.
Jake is a typical male. When Hot Shot Stables changed their name to The Insane Assylum, Jake wanted to name it "We Love Hookers!" instead. He has middle-toned brown hair, tanned-ish skin, and green eyes. The stable seems to have a thing for green eyes. xD He drinks, he does burnouts, and he loves women. Jake can be seen here; [link]
Jakes sister, although Faith is nothing like him. She's responsible, caring, and has self-dignity. She has long middle-toned hair down to her waist, and deep brown eyes. She's a very soft, loving girl, and treats all horses with love and respect.
Prefers to be called Slade. He's a rather tall man, and his choice of clothing and personality make him seem somewhat....scary. His horse, Emotionally Unstable, is a half demonic, half mustang stallion, and they're best friends. Slade had black, emo hair, that sweeps down to his blue eyes. When he smiles though, he seems to be a completely different guy. He can brighten up a whole room when he smiles...too bad he doesn't do it often. He can read other's very well, and can see their true nature. He's almost like an empath. (a person who can feel other's emotions, and with some practice, can alter them. My friend is an empath. x3) If Slade likes you, he'll stick by you through thick and thin. So don't be afraid to come up and start a conversation with him, you may just be best friends without knowing.
Kizza, a name only allowed to be used by Jacob. Anyone else, and they'd be punched in the face. Jacob seems to get away with everything. xD Kiara is a short-ish girl, and weighs very little. She's the stables main jockey, and you can never miss her on their field, with her black, red dip-dyed hair. She's full of life; always the center of the party, and loves a good laugh. She is definitely one to make converaation with.
Staff of Shining Spurs Ranch;
Cle is the main girl of SSR. She rides our famous stallion, SSR Gun Runner, and all information can be found here; [link]
Blaine's that guy who swept Cleo off her feet. He has short hair like Jacob Hathaway, and bright green eyes. He's an easy going guy, and loves a nice chat, while sipping on a cold beer. He's tall, just over 6ft, and breaks all horses here at SSR, so naturally he's well built.
More information will come at a later date, too tired to write anymore. Just thought I'd give you all a basic idea of each person. :3
