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.
