A group of miniature horse owners from all over Denmark visited Texas last week to attend the American Miniature Horse Association World Championship Show in Fort Worth. "The Danish Delegation," as they are known, is part of an association that has only been around for 11 years, and they have to leave Denmark to buy miniature horses to take back to their country.
"We met a lot of people, and looked at a lot of horses," said Jeannie Andresen of their trip to Texas.
When they group visited Blanco on Friday, October 12, they had already purchased 12 horses. Jane Macon, who owns Alamo Miniatures in Twin Sisters, invited the visitors down to her ranch to see her horses, and Nell Krueger brought them into Blanco for dinner at Rockin' R Steakhouse. A smaller group visited Alamo Miniatures on vacation two years ago, and now they've returned to shop for horses.
The group spent their entire American visit in Texas, meeting nice people and enjoying the considerably warmer weather. Denmark is just about to hit the frost point now.
The Danish Delegation who visited Blanco consisted of Anna and Henning Krœgpilk, Simone Waitz Mosegaard, Bodil, Julie, and Line Grubak, I.B. and Henriette Kristensen, Ulla Bühl, Sonja Kjœrgaard, and Stig, Jeannie, and Naja Andresen.
