Throwback Thursday

 If you give me a choice between many layers of white paint and a solid-colored horse, I'd choose the solid color any day. Pintos, with their extensive white, have never been my go-to color.  Here are a few G1 customs from about 1998. I was in grad school and had access to an airbrush studio. I spent a lot of time there on weekends. Citation custom stablemate from about 1998 with haired mane and tail. Remember how popular haired horses used to be? Portrait horse custom stablemate from about 1998. Native dancer mold. The Native Dancer mold was one of my favorites back when G1 Stablemates were the only Stablemates. This portrait pinto may have been a gaited horse. I remember he got dropped at a show and his head broke off. I repaired him after the spill.

Pansies and Ponies Live Show, Ann Arbor, MI

I’ve been to two shows this spring, one for traditional models and one for all scales. Mini showers came out with some beautiful customs and resins at Pansies and Ponies! Dapple grays shone in all shades, models, and mediums: Stone Chips Arab Custom in dapple gray, maybe done in pastels? An Alborozo in a dark gray with red mane and tail A Peruvian Paso in a lovely dapple Alborozo with a braid and star dapples Pastel Andalusian Mare by myself owned by Melissa Hart And the model of the moment, Alborozo, looks amazing in every color: Silver bay or taffy Leopard Appaloosa Grulla Bay with pangre Buckskin These two were Orion mini resins sculpted by Stacey Tumlinson with beautiful paint jobs: Orion in brindle Orion in sorrel pinto And unique colors were everywhere: Karen Zorn brought some new work: A sweet bay polo pony with teal blue leg wraps Pretty by hunter on the new walking thoroughbred mold My
