What a Trip!

What a crazy, wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime trip. Everything went so smoothly, and we had so much fun. Stephanie & Stacey from Media Tonic, and Rick from Disney were all so gracious and just as excited to have us as we were to be there. I have so much to tell, but let’s start with the contest.

Monday morning was “The Event”, as everyone seemed to call it. At 9:00 a limo showed up at our hotel (the Sheraton Universal, very nice) to take us to the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank.

When we arrived there were people everywhere working on setting the stage for The Event. A red carpet runway, stunt chickens, and hay set the scene.

Soon it was time for Miss Silkie to strut her stuff. This is the movie’s producer, Randy Fullmer, chatting with her.

The contestant from Kentucky was “Elvira”, a modern game bantam. She was a dainty little thing, looking almost like a miniature wild turkey.

Elivra was declared the winner by several inches. In true Hollywood fashion, Miss Silkie acted the part of the bitter runner-up by pooping on Elivra’s bouquet of flowers.
