Winning combination Nigel Crowe with A Snip of A Jay (by Jays Smokin Story out of one of our Snipper daughters) added to their heaving trophy cabinet at the Fenland show by taking home the Snippnbelles Star Amateur Halter Championship, following in the footsteps of Mai Guy Zip and Jays Dene (who had won it for the past three years!) “Homer” as he’s called at home isn’t just a pretty face – he’s previously won the AQHA UK Supreme Champion Award shown by David Deptford, has multiple Grand and Reserve Championships as well as being shown by Nigel’s wife Sheelagh in Showmanship (a previous Fenland Champion). He’s also a pretty nifty Reiner too.
In addition, Nigel and Homer are known for their fund raising for charity, which normally involves Nigel dressing up either as a woman, or in his long johns to help raise money for Breast Cancer Care and Prostrate Cancer Research at the Western Equestrian Society National Championships.
“Homer” is such a sweet heart, at the recent AQHA UK Championships, he carried “Super Gran” Sheila Fitzpatrick safely – it was the first time she’d sat on him, in the Charity Superheros class.
Homer is a superhero to us!
