Class descriptions, judges, everything else

You'll find additional tidbits and thoughts here.  If you do not find answers here, please feel free to email host and ask.  Before the show starts (8:00 am, sharp) I will go over all this information with exhibitors so we are all on the same page.

Color classes are judged solely on color, not conformation.  This is not "workmanship" per se, as I believe workmanship is involved in every halter class and not to be judges singularly.
__________________________________________________________
 
*All foals show with adults, except in Gender class where they have their own age specific class.
 
*All scales show together except in the Scale Division, where they are seperated.
 
*All work by Thomas Bainbridge will be shown in one "fun"  class, specifically for work by him.  Tom will judge this class with special awards for each placer.  Please do not show any work by Tom in any other class, regardless of judge.

I anticipate many of the classes being large, however, I have decided there will not be ANY splitting of classes.  Originally I was thinking I would but after careful consideration I have decided that NO CLASSES will be split or divided.  This is to help maintain a time schedule and isn't it always nice to win in a class that is larger than win a class that has been diluted by splitting?
