My collection of Copperfox horses has grown! This is Jasper, one of their newest releases on the Irish Sport Horse mold:

I pre-ordered him back in December and am so glad I did. I’ve been waiting for a color I really liked to come out on this mold.

I have his back hoof propped up with a small piece cut from a hot glue stick. Until I find something better, this will work ok for photos. 🙂 I think the mold looks so much better with that back hoof up. With it, his other two hooves are more flat on the ground. It makes me wonder if he was originally intended to have a peg?

He has dapples, but they are very, very subtle. I have to hold him at an angle to be able to see them, but I’m ok with that, I was hoping he wouldn’t be too dapple-y. 😀 His color is also very nice!

Personally I really like the hand-painted look of white markings/hooves/etc on Copperfox models. It’s very different compared to the rest of my OF collection.

Overall I’m really happy with him. I’m glad to have one of the ISH models join the herd at last! (just waiting on the new shire now!! ❤ )

We are two weeks into the new year and I’m already struggling with my resolutions. (no surprise there!) I’m also struggling with bad back pain from work. What is with my body lately? I swear something is always hurting enough to cause problems. :/
Sooo I’ve been trying to sort out the cause of that as well as focus on what makes me feel better, like stretching and heat and not standing and… anyway…

As far as hobby stuff goes, it’s been really helpful for me to set small goals to complete by the end of the day. I’ve found that it gives a nice feeling of accomplishment. So even with stupid pain, I’m still getting stuff done, yay!

First, I completed another trio of foal blankets:

These will be going up on my Etsy shop (which is re-open) sometime in the near future, so keep an eye out if you’re interested.

I’ve gotten a few saddle pad orders done, including an updated Hogwarts-inspired one:

I also managed to solve the “I-have-no-room-cause-I-have-too-many-horses” problem, (for the time being) by switching the hobby closet of doom’s shelf with a big plastic one, leaving the small one free for moar ponies.

My goal of making a piece of tack every month isn’t going well at all, but that’s because I can’t decide what to make. I’ve got two and a half weeks left, aghhhh!

But I am working on a few new blog posts, the first of which is very wordy so it’s been taking a while. Also, last month I started putting together a hobby resources page, which I made visible around the new year. I’m still adding to it so if you have any suggestions, feel free to mention them!

I think that’s it. Now I’ll go clear off my desk and try to figure out what tack piece to make. Maybe.
