Contests - Coming Up, and Won

Seems there are contests everywhere I look right now, and I wanted to share them with you - both the ones that you may still be a part of, and the one that was just won.  First..........and the winner is........

Our friends and neighbors at Naggiar Vineyards and Winery just found out yesterday morning that they won the KCRA "A" List first place award for best winery in the greater Sacramento area - way to go!  I did a post in April about the great wine tasting event that we held there, and it is fun to hear that all the Naggiar's hard work over the past 10+ years has paid off.  Congratulations go out to them from all here at Blue Fountain Farm!

Be sure to check out the link to the Winery - they've updated their web site, and they have a lot of great events planned for the summer.  In fact, we are having a dressage show  here at the ranch on Sunday, June 6th (more in an upcoming post), and it would be fun to go through our "private" gate to the winery for some wine tasting and music after riding, or watching, the horses.  Sounds like a great idea to me!!


Next, my friend, artist Leslie Ann Webb (on whom I did a post recently) is having a contest to win one of her valuable originals - here's her info on that - 

From May 19 through June 30, anyone who buys a print for $98 gets their name in the drawing to WIN AN ORIGINAL PAINTING ($4500) of either their horse/animal or from my available originals of equal value. If you purchase the larger print ($300+), your name will be entered 3 times in the drawing. Don't wait...only 33 days left...  enter my website and view the prints...prints of new work are also available, just call to order by phone......  530 272 3878

Leslie Ann will be present at our dressage show on the 6th with her prints for sale, so be sure to stop by and buy your chance at winning one of her incredible originals!


And last, but certainly not least, my friend Jackie Fleming of Cimarron Sky Dog Reserve in New Mexico (see the page about her sanctuary to the right) is having an equine photography contest.  Here's what she says about the competition:

The ‘Cimarron Sky-Dog Reserve’ is a wild horse sanctuary based in Cerrillos and Watrous, New Mexico. This year marks our tenth anniversary of being in business and to celebrate that we are starting an annual Equine Photography Competition to not only raise funds for our sanctuary but also to help promote our cause. All proceeds raised from this event will go to the Cimarron Sky-Dog Reserve, which is a 501(c)(3), non-profit charity. Obviously we are horse lovers by nature but the artistic beauty that they embody inspires many of us to want to pick up our cameras and try to do justice to and capture an element of their natural beauty and spirit. Some of us are more successful than others. We have been very fortunate to have the generous help of three of the finest Equine Photographers in the country to judge our competition - Gregg Albracht, Tony Stromberg and Lynn Pomeranz .    Many people out there will recognize these names and know that their work is truly some the most evocative and beautiful in the Equine Photography world today. Please go to their websites to see the kind work and experience that these judges will bring to this competition.

So, get out there with your cameras and catch those special moments that can happen when you're with your hooved beasties, and you can help those horses who aren't as fortunate as the ones we love and take care of on a daily basis.

Again, congratulations to our friends and neighbors Naggiar Vineyards and Winery on their big win, and please look into participating (as I am going to) in the contests of my friends Leslie Ann Webb for her original art, and the photo contest of Jackie Fleming of Cimarron Sky Dog Reserve .
