Russ, Thank you so much for asking about her..........
Three years ago, my husband surprised me with purchasing a Modern Sweepstakes breeding at the Convention.
We had never raised a modern, but since I grew up around Saddlebreds, I sure appreciate a pretty moving horse.
After she was born, we had a visitor who said that she was the prettiest Modern he had ever seen - a real beauty queen - so I thought we would name her Miss Ohio to bring her luck.
We took her to the World show - which is the Modern National Show and we were shocked when she won the Area Futurity, and her Weanling filly class and then floored when she won Jr World Champion - almost impossible to do as she has to compete unshod against the shod and padded yearlings and 2 year olds. Weanlings are not permitted to show back for Grand Champion so she had went as far as she could go
Then last week at Congress we were thrilled when she won Res National Futurity Champion, Champion Weanling filly and then Jr Res Champion and finally National Champion Sweepstakes.
Even more special is her personality. She has been the easiest foal this year to clip, bath, train and she loves people. Every myth you hear about moderns - well she does not fit that criteria. Can you tell we just adore her
Here is our baby girl - Buckeye WCF Miss Ohio
