Journal Entry: Wed Jan 9, 2013, 11:45 AM

CLOSED*** :new: No new entries will be accepted.
Judging will be in process tomorrow. TODAY (3/1/13) will be a waiting period so that people can correct me if I disorganized anything. IF YOU DO NOT SEE YOUR ENTRY UNDER THE CLASS NAME IT WAS FOR, AND IT WAS POSTED BEFORE 3/1/13, PLEASE NOTE ME. SIMILARLY, IF YOUR ENTRY IS LISTED UNDER THE WRONG CLASS, PLEASE NOTE ME.


Okay I hate the show Toddlers & Tiaras- but I thought it would be a cute name for this show.
(It's so soon after my last show just ended, like literally minutes ;A; but I had this idea before I closed TCABE and now I really want to do it.)


Welcome to Top Creek Stables! You are cordially invited to take place in a mini-show revolving completely around showing off your favorite babies! The show will take place at Top Creek headquarters in Limerick, Ireland during mid-Winter/Springtime so you have been advised dress warmly. It's cold up here!



Starts: 01/09/13
Entries due by: 02/28/13
Results posted: 03/01/13
Show Type: Foals only. Mixed classes.
Restrictions: None.

This is a mini-show strictly for horses under one year of age, and will go on for the duration of roughly about a month and a half.
It will be judged on effort with about 10% RNG influence from bonuses and distractions.


- Tracing and referencing are allowed, but using linearts or copying/stealing/tracing another person's artwork is absolutely not. If you trace, please credit for the photo you used.
- Pre-registration is NOT required.
- Both natural and unnatural foals of all breeds are accepted. But they must be horses by species - I won't accept something that looks exactly like a griffin but the only thing separating it is a mane or something.
- No horses over the age of one year will be allowed to participate. This is a show for foals.
- A background is required, but it can range from extremely simple (for instance, just shapes or a flat hill) or extremely complex.
- You must draw the foal performing and not just standing there, unless it is the halter class.
- If your foal needs his/her dam nearby, you can picture them in cases like liberty or halter, but they cannot be in sight for things like the foal race or swim race. They may be distracting and/or cause accidental injury if the foal tries to go to them.
- You may enter as many classes as you'd like, but am individual foal may only have one entry in one class. You can draw your foals in the same picture if they are in the same class.
- Since this does include an RNG portion, and I may be entering my own foals, I would like someone else to judge those classes if someone wouldn't mind volunteering.


Based on -effort-:
Headshots: 2 points+
3/4 Partial body or full-body: 4-5 points+
Shading: 1 point+

How does your foal perform in water? Wild foals on the island of Chincoteague make it every year during the Horse Swim, can yours? Handler must swim beside the foal across a heated pool of 25 meters. It will be divided into lanes with floating markers to avoid injury between contestants. Please do not enter this class if you think it may be a traumatic experience for your foal if they are particularly skittish, etc. Lifeguards will be on duty to help out if something goes wrong.
