And the winner of our 42nd-Anniversary and Virtual BreyerFest Tack Giveaway is:
number 34 Carrie Sloan Meyer!!
We had 49 entrants. I am blown away. This beats any of the TSII tack Lotteries I used to hold. Thank you all so, so much for bearing with me. I am well and truly impressed.
Thanks to my husband who did the random draw on his computer.
It has been a crazy and fun BreyeFest, and it's only just begun.
I have been pleased, overall, with this method of choosing a tack customer. It has the element of random drawing but is much less fuss than the old Lotteries.
Forgive me using just one horse here. He seems appropriate.
If I ever do this again, there will be a change in the rules: People must provide a name, or at least a handle (a stage nickname). We had a number of Anonymouses and Unknowns.
I plan to contact the winner privately and we'll work out colors and times.
To anyone who was watching closely enough, you may have detected another winner. She read the fine print and then went through with it (in a way I hadn't thought anybody would). I felt the only way to deal with this was to make a second set.
I am now committed to making two sets when I anticipated only one, and that is why these collars cannot be just 'ordered.' If and when I feel like making more of them after these two sets (which I anticipate taking well into the fall), you will hear about them here. Until then, dear tack collectors, go forth and support your artist of choice--- !
Remember there are more than 450 TSII saddles in existence, over a hundred harnesses, and uncounted pieces of headgear.
We are still in a golden age of model tack production in the hobby. Enjoy your collection!
