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!

Mold: Saddlebred (G2)
Color: Copper Roan Sabino
Gallery: Fantasy Sabino
Medium: Acrylics
Status: Painted 2007 and Sold Feb 2007

I’m a little unsure if I meant her to be a sabino roan or a true roan with sabino on top, since she has the dark points of a true roan, but the bald face and sabino markings. (You have to squint to see them, but she does have belly spots as well as high whites on her hind legs.) Continue reading

This little gal was painted sometime in the mid 2000’s, but I haven’t been able to track down her paperwork quite yet. That’s the downside of storing things in several different mediums at once!

This gal was one of my fun splatterpaint creations that came to life because of experimentation I did trying to create a gold florentine with Florentine Flip. It’s a bit time consuming, since there are actually multiple layers of diluted browns and whites but the end result is worth it.

I honestly can’t say if she was meant to be a roan and then turned into an appaloosa or if I had this color in mind when I started. Red roan leopard appaloosa are a fun color and this really makes me want to paint another! 🙂

She’s another one of those horses that I regret selling… Ah well, in theory I can always paint another one! (In practice, of course, it’s never that easy.)

Medium: Gesso, Liquitex acrylics paints (unknown)
