2018 FOAL PHOTO CONTEST


Our 2018 Foal Photo Contest got off to a rocky start with limited entries in hand with only a month left to enter. Our staff started to think that this annual contest had fi nally run its course after 20 years. Boy, were we wrong! T e closer we got to the July 1 deadline, the more foal photos fl ooded our digital inboxes. By the time July 1 rolled around, we had 172 photos representing 62 diff erent foals; which is greater than what was submitted in 2017.


What was even more pleasing to our staff was the number of high quality photos submitted with several contenders for the grand prize of our August cover. Judging this year was a little diff erent, as we have added Junior Amateur, Senior Amateur and Professional categories. Once the cover photo was selected, which was not an easy task, runner ups were divided into subcategories with the best of the best selected as winners. Other highlights included the variety of breeds submitted, the number of rescue foals that were entered and


nearly 20 Maryland stallions being represented. As much as we wish we could print all 172 photos that were sent to us, we just don’t have the space, so following pages show just a handful. All photos will be posted to equiery.com by the end of August, so stay tuned for more cuteness! And thank you once again to everyone who took the time to enter our contest. We love seeing these future Maryland stars in their fi rst few months of life!


2018 Grand Champion


When this photo by Katlyn Lamp of Reisterstown of an un- named T oroughbred colt trying to get a bit too close to the cam- era arrived, everyone who saw it couldn’t help but smile. T at face! T ose eyes! T at nose! You just want to smoosh it! Bred and owned by Sagamore Farm, the Kitten’s Joy colt out of the Em- pire Maker mare Daring Dancer just oozed curiosity. Maryland Horse Council Executive Com- mittee members loved the photo and felt the foal was saying, “Hey you! Come over here!”, which is perfect for getting people to want to pick up the magazine.

Reserve Champion Foal-owner Dr. Elise Har-


vey of Sandy Spring hand- delivered a thumb drive with photos of her day-old Nor- wegian Fjord colt Greystone’s Baron as the photos were too large to send via email. T is spunky little guy by Prydarson and out of Jordbear, by Kan- da King, melted the hearts of most of the cover voters. T e photo, taken by Hannah Kleckner of Kennett Square, PA, showed off the foal in an engaging way with nice light- ing and a simple background.


Honorable Mention Lisa Santos of Woodbine submitted three photos of T addeus, a


Clydesdale/Drum Horse-cross she adopted with his dam Torrie from Gentle Giants Horse Rescue. Out of the three, it was this one of a quiet moment between mom and baby that nearly made our cover. Cover voters loved the nuzzling pose, the colors and clean background.


All 2018 Foal Photo Contest entries will be posted on equiery.com by the end of August!
