Voting closed on Sunday at midnight, at which time I took this screenshot:

A likeness of our second place winner and his horse (or rocking horse?) will be featured in an upcoming NickerDoodle posted on HorseNation.com.

Congratulations to all of our fabulous hat-wearing winners, and a great big thank-you to everyone who participated in the contest!
And the biggest thanks of all goes to Melanie Eberhardt and NickerDoodles for sponsoring such a fun competition. We encourage everyone to check out Melanie’s website, www.melanieeberhardt.com, to learn more about her work!
