Mini stocking stuffers

What better to do on a snowy weekend than listen to Frank Delaney read "Ireland" to me while I paint. It really makes the hours fly by. :-)

When I was in GA for Thanksgiving, I splurged on a bunch of the new G3 SMs at Hobby Town, and I couldn't resist painting a few of them right away. The appy Friesian cross is on ebay as is a bay roan drafter cohort of his. I will be adding a few more minis this week as well to earn a little mad money for the holiday, so please check out my auctions. I'm starting all the minis at $24.99 with no reserve.

Another PS Chips custom to ebay

I am having a great deal of fun of with these PS Chips. They have superior detailing to all but the G1 Stablemates, and just like potato chips, you can't one.

Finally! A model horse related post!

"And at the top of the stretch, a filly is in front at the Belmont! But Curlin is right there with her! These two, in a battle of the sexes in the Belmont Stakes! It's Curlin on the inside; Rags to Riches on the outside. A desperate finish! Rags to Riches and Curlin! They're coming down to the wire. It's gonna be very close! And it's gonna be.... a filly in the Belmont! Rags to Riches has beaten Curlin and a hundred years of Belmont history! The first filly to win it in over a century!"

This little gal is available on ebay from October 15-20.

John Henry 1975-2007

Eighty-three starts, 39 wins, 30 stakes wins, 7 Eclipse awards, 2 Big Caps, 2 Millions, 2 times Horse of the Year, and 32 years as a living legend. You'd hardly guess it looking at him in this photo I took in July, but I think the tail-to-the-door attitude even at age 32 said it all. John did it his way or not at all. RIP, champ.

Monastic Springs

It's been more than two years since I've received new photos of this guy, and I can't tell you how thrilled I am to see how he's grown! Would you believe he's only a two year-old? The last time I saw him, he was just three weeks old. For those who don't know me well enough to have heard my endless gushing about Ipi Tombe (pictured in my second blog entry here), Monastic Springs is Ipi's first foal, a colt by the greatest living stallion in the world, Sadler's Wells. He is currently in training in New Jersey, and will hopefully make his first start either late this year or at the beginning of next year. If he has even half the talent of his illustrious parents, he will be a stellar runner.
In model horse related news, I am working on a little sculpture project, and with any luck, I ought to have pictures sometime this weekend. A sneak peek at least, I hope!

Does it really serve any purpose other than to make me sneeze? Does anything eat it or thrive because of it? I think not. Blasted allergies.

Anyhoo, in between fits of sneezing and nose blowing and working my tail off at my real job, I've finished and mailed out a few commissioned ponies over the last few weeks.

Post-Breyerfest productivity

Now that Breyerfest has come and gone, it's back to the grindstone for me. This week, I've been working on a few projects, not the least of which is a massive update of my website. I have alot of model horse pictures to load in still, but I've finally gotten alot of my Thoroughbred pictures organized and online. At left is a shot of Ipi Tombe, my favorite race mare, that I took last week at Denali Stud. The rest can be found here.

I currently have two horses for sale on ebay ending this weekend. One is a CM cold-painted Lakeshore Arab in palomino and the other is a CM Breyer Classic Arab Mare in bay.

This weekend, I plan to finish up and photograph a couple of commissioned pieces, and I hope to be able to mail a few of them out this coming week. I also have a couple of drastic customs in the works, so please check back for some sneak peeks!


I enjoy blogging elsewhere on the 'net, and I thought this might be a fun way to keep my customers updated about horses I'm working on. Thanks!
