Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion TN State Fair

By: Richard

Tennessee State Fair Grand Champion Miniature Donkey JennetWe just returned from the TennesseeĀ  State Fair NMDA Miniature Donkey Show and we are thrilled and humbled beyond belief. Katrina, Kandi and I are still in shock.

We have just completed our first full year in showing miniature donkeys and will have a difficult time having more fun than we have had this year. These little four legged friends are the best medicine.

The State Fair NMDA Show saw competitors from Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and as far away as Michigan. The Judge said at the conclusion of the show that it was the best collection of miniature donkeys he had seen anywhere in the Country in the past two years!

Katrina and Kandi did all of the showing while I kept the animals happy that were not in the ring. Both Katrina and Kandi showed animals in the Halter class, and Kandi showed in the In Hand Trail class.

When all was said and done “Stroker” KKR Stroke of Midnight received a 2nd Place ribbon in the Weanlings/Yearlings Gelding and Jack class, “Hottie” Legendary’s Hearts Wide Open received a 4th Place in the Weanlings/Yearlings Jennet class, “Macy Lee” Designer Donkeys Macy Lee (shown by Katrina) was selected as the Grand Champion Jennet and “Lexus” Hill Country’s Lexus (shown by Kandi) was judged as the Reserve Grand Champion! Unbelievable and a very good day to say the least!

Kandi went back into the show ring and got a fourth place finish behind some excellent competition in the In Hand Trail class. This was only the second time Kandi and her less than two year old Hottie have ever been in the ring for this class. Now she is really motivated to work hard this winter on training Hottie for next season.
