Even though I really am out of room, another new pony made it’s way into the herd. (and Breyer keeps tempting me with new releases too… I mean have you all seen the Breyerfest horses revealed so far???)

Anyway, this is the Connemara from the “Best of British” series, with the loose mane/tail variation.

Most of the loose mane versions I’ve seen haven’t had any dapples, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover mine did. In person they’re a lot more subtle than my photos show.

I ended up ordering a replacement stand for him by Towns End Art, as his “wave,” while good for display, would get in the way for photos.

It was kind of amusing to see him on it for the first time. I’m so used to the Newsworthy mold on the wave that he looked like he was flying! (I think his name will be Peter Pan because of that, haha) But at the right angle the acrylic practically disappears, and since it’s small editing it out of photos will be easy.

I also got one for my jumping horse – he can fly too! 😄

Today I set up my indoor arena to get some photos. I wasn’t positive on where to place him with the jump, so forgive me if I’m way off! I tried to get an idea of it by watching slow-motion videos of jumping horses, and that seemed to help some.

Like I thought, editing out the stand was fairly easy, and much, much easier than trying to get rid of the wave!

Here’s a quick shot with a Jr. Rider I have in progress:

Now he needs a saddle and pad and bridle and… >_<

Finally got started on the next batch of nerdy saddle pads…

And, despite my lack of shelf space, added a new pony to the herd. (ponies don’t take up as much room, right?? Right?!)

I think I just need to accept the fact that having multiple things in progress is just a part of my creative process. Either that or I’ve developed a much shorter attention span than I used to have. :/

February’s ended on a good note hobby-wise though… here’s to making more progress in March!

An Unexpected Gift

Yesterday I came home to a large box from Sandy Sanderson. I was floored (and am still a bit lost for words!) to discover an American Pharoah model inside.

I keep getting all teary-eyed and I’m so incredibly grateful for such a gift. ❤ Words are failing me again, so here is some photo spam:

Of course I had to put him in his blanket 🙂
