After a lunch break we next saw the grey 4 year old Elegant Star AF #ShA-05-230 (Starwalker x Empress Estelle AF by *Shandor). A feminine and typey mare, scoring 8's for her type, head, and neck, her future is to be my potential trail horse and broodmare.

The judges then inspected Stephany Seay's 2 year old grey Starwalker daughter Sisu's Starlet AF #ShA-07-25, out of Shagya's Sisu by *Shandor. This big mare already measured 15.3, but she had a good type and a feminine head. She also scored 8's for her strong legs (cannon measuring 20 cm) and her balanced canter.

The last mare judged was another 2 year old, the big bay Rexanne Star AF #ShA-07-252, by Starwalker and out of the *Shandor daughter Shagya Regine AF. "Rexie" was not only large, but rather plain and not harmonious at this stage. Furthermore, she sustained a soft tissue injury to her shoulder the previous year, and, while veterinary prognosis for future soundness is good, she was not yet sound on inspection day.

The other 4 year old presented was the large but somewhat immature grey filly Shagya's Sarabande AF #ShA-05-228, owned by Rebecca Blair. "Sara" is *Shandor's last foal, and she inherited his strong Shagya-line type, but in a much more feminine package, and received 8's for her type and her head. Standing 15.3, she impressed the judges as still "unfinished" and they commented to that effect in her description. The day after the inspection Sara was on her way to Rebecca's home in Kentucky, and is being boarded at a beautiful facility while Rebecca continues with her studies in equestrian business management. Rebecca hopes to compete in dressage and perhaps eventing with Sara, purposes for which Sara appears well-suited.

Consequently the judges decided not to judge Rexie's walk. However, her trot was good enough for an 8 and she also received an 8 for her strong leg conformation.

And last, late in the afternoon, the judges evaluated the 4 year old bay gelding by Janos, Shagya Skamp AF #ShA-05-232, out of Samantha by *Amurath Samurai. Jamie Bratt, who had visited at Adele's Shagyas in July, paid the fee to have Skamp evaluated, as Jamie was considering purchasing him. Jamie flew out from Maryland to attend the inspection, plus she pitched in to help. Among other tasks, Jamie videoed much of the Inspection for us. The judges were all as impresswith Skamp as he obviously was with himself, and Skamp received almost all 8's, for an average score of 7.75! Skamp, who was gelded last April, still sees himself as a macho kind of a guy!.
