Custom painted model horses in solid fantasy colors. Most of these mimic normal horse shading and colorations, just using a color other than natural brown/black/etc.

Big Orange Bash Donation Fat Pony Magnets (#004-014)

Big Orange Bash Donation Magnets

Big Orange Bash Donation Magnets

Normally I donate custom model horses to model horse live shows, but this time around I figured a small herd of Fat Pony magnets might be more fun! 🙂

I’ve made donations for Big Orange Bash (Knoxville, TN) before and I’m more than happy to keep them hock deep in magnets or models. The show is a fund raiser for the Large Animal Clinic at the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine and if my silly little horses can help, how can I pass that up?

I went for a full fantasy herd this time around, in homage to my past donations, and tried to get as much variation as I could into the ranks. Part of this was because I was going to use the photos in the Etsy store, so two birds (err, 11 fat ponies) with one stone!

“Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace…”

Someday is one of a pair of doodle horses I started back in 2005 and was unable to finish because I couldn’t match the doodle paint color. Yet another reason to regret throwing out all that paint when I was cleaning house… *sighs* And folks wonder why artists tend to horde things. Continue reading

Status: Painted 2005ish? and For Sale

This handsome fella’s name has been Cid ever since I picked him up out of the 2005 body box and decided to finish him off. He picked up the sin’Terminar (mangled Spanish for ‘unfinished’) when I realized I wouldn’t be able to color match his purple markings. Continue reading

Underhill Playboy

Underhill Playboy

Galloping out of the fairy lands, this handsome steed is looking for someone to raise some mischief with!

Underhill is a Breyer Stablemate Warmblood (G3) painted a shiny metallic green tobiano with sharp black points, star and snip, realistic eyes, and a coat of chrome to light his way through the dark. While he might fight a little with the camera (as you can tell from the photos), he looks good no matter what shade of green he comes out.

But don’t let his tricks with the camera fool you, this little guy is all Seelie Court at heart, and his pranks are harmless fun!

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 guy has been hanging out in my body box for quite a while now, just waiting for the Muses to notice him. His sunny disposition finally caught their eye and now he’s sporting blue skies with only a tiny cloud to weight him down. Continue reading

I know, I know, I’ve broken my musical naming theme with this little fella, but when I tried to give him a nice Cantata or Requiem he objected. Some horses aren’t meant for fancy names, I suppose! Continue reading

Nocte Rex

Nocte Rex

Nocte Rex

Nocte Rex is Latin for King of the Night and this little guy is definitely rocking the midnight hours! He’s got a deep blue-bay coat, glossed silver hooves and a silver star to light the way ahead. I was tempted to add a few more constellations along his flanks, but he seemed content as is.

Rex is a simple little custom; starting with a flat blue coat I added the bay shadings with pastels and then touched them up with acrylics. He’s finished in matte with only the silver markings (and realistic eyes) done in gloss.

He’s had his seams sanded and logo removed, but no other modifications to the mold beyond that. He’s meant as a shelf piece, but he might make a nice photo shower as well… I’m just not sure he’s flashy enough to place (alas).

Originally painted back in the early 2000’s this little gal has gone back under the brush to fix some rubs and bring her up to current standards! She might have been a snappy dresser before, but this time I think she’s really nailed the look… Continue reading
