Fall Live Shows

I went to two shows this fall, the Michigan Show Series Halloween Show in Hastings, MI. Melissa Hart was a wonderful host, the show hall was a great size, and the autumn drive in the country was beautiful. The show was for all scale models from Trads to Micro minis so the tables had a little bit of everything on them!

The second show I went to was in Riga, MI near Ohio. The show was for Classics and smaller sizes. Trina Houser hosted  Riders Up on the

My 2019 International Customizing Equine Event Model

I am a little behind the curve on my custom model for ICEE. That’s the Facebook challenge held in October and November. I had two live shows back to back so I had been focused on my show string. Now I’m working on my model.

He is a Akhal-Teke stallion from the new walking thoroughbred / unicorn mold.

So far I’ve taken off the mane, forelock, horn and tail. I’ve lengthened the neck and patterns and shortened up the hip. The legs are only moved a tiny bit.

One hundred Horses: Number Fourteen

This little mare, Cassiopeia, is another gray—but a fleabitten gray. There are several flea bitten gray horses at the barn where I board that I used as references.

Cassiopeia began as a Magnolia unicorn and her position hasn't changed. I added to her back and hindquarters, and added more bone to her legs. Her movement is elevated onto clear pegs and her mane is braided. Her face has been resculpted a little bit.

Copy Cat Custom Project (Number Thirteen)

I have (finally) completed my Copy Cat Custom Model! I began working on her in January of 2019. And I have a few excuses as to why she took 10 months...

So I've named her Kitty after the contest. She sports a little green bow and a little attitude. I'm looking forward to showing her at her first show this weekend!

One Hundred Horses: Number Twelve

Czech Me Out is a Czech Warmblood Stallion customized from the Django mold. He sports big, starry dapples and a braided mane and tail. He's so happy to have color on him—he's been waiting to be painted for over a year now. I used my new neutral gray pan pastels.

One Hundred Horses: Number Eleven

I'm excited to finish my first custom horse on the new standing Warmblood mold from the paint-your-own unicorn set. He posed for his photos yesterday at Lake Saint Clair.
