We would like to congratulation FawkesHaven and the leased 392 Silvervind for bringing home the hard-earned, well-deserved title of 2019 Faimé of the Year.
Accomplishments include (from her winning bid):
She's one of the most recognizable Faimé in the group of over 1,700 horses.
She's had a history of finding very talented artists as her owners.
Silvervind has been around a LONG time, since January 2014, and still remains an active and beloved character (a feat most HArpg horses do not over-come).
She has foaled 5 offspring, all of which she passed on her lovely Bio Lumino and are some of the most beautiful Bios in the group.
Silvervind competed in the 2014 FOYS-Team Event (not sure on Placing as most of those records were lost)
She has also participated in not one, but TWO Parades with two different owners/artists in an effort to catch a wild Faimé.
Her journey to Supreme Champion has been slow, but steady, with an early show career and a lot of love.
We look forward to seeing all of your Faimés competing for the 2020 title <3
