Earth is a custom order done in the same blue-bay tobiano as Partly Cloudy. She has show-blacked hooves, a thin blaze, solid black eyes and a glossy finish.
She’s only the second time I’ve painted a Breyer Mini Whinnies High Stepping Saddlebred Mare, it’s a mold I really like, but just haven’t has a chance put under a paintbrush. It also means Earth’s only an inch tall and the photos below are several times life-sized!
The problem I run into whenever I paint these little guys is that the camera captures defects I can’t always fix– someday I’ll manage to pull off customs just the way they look in my head, but alas for now I’m still learning!

This little guy earned his name after a long drawn out battle to try and photograph him. I have a love-hate relationship with my camera when it comes to certain colors… and it looks like I’m going to have to add yellow to that list! Continue reading →

No bigger than a penny, this little gal sports one heck of an attitude– a prefect match for one of the names dreamed up in my Facebook group! (After a couple hundred horses, I sometimes get stuck on naming these little guys. ;)) Continue reading →

This little gal sat on the workbench for a while after she was done because I couldn’t think of a good name… thank goodness for the awesomeness that is my Facebook group! (The runner-up name, Shamrockstar, was snagged by another horse who hasn’t been finished yet). Continue reading →
I might, possibly, maybe, have an addition to Doodle Ponies. …Maybe.
Once again proving to myself that full-body doodles horses TAKE FOREVER, this little guy spent many an hour with me on the couch zoning out to whatever random reality ‘war’ was on the TV (cake, storage, duck, etc.). Continue reading →

This little gal has been a long time coming… as in almost a year’s wait. Which is pretty sad considering she was an apology horse painted because of shipping problems with one of the stablemates. *sighs* Continue reading →
I don’t know what it is about horses picking their own colors– but this little guy pulled the same trick Rhymer did and refused the chrome I had planned. I think he would have made a cute little tovero, but he had much simpler ideas! Continue reading →

This little gal is an inch tall… and she took forever to doodle! (Time well spent, but she’s certainly put me off of doing full-body doodles using the micron pens.) Continue reading →
