Jasper’s Turnout

Continuing with the “blanket all the horses!” mood I’ve been in, here’s the most recent one, made to fit my Copperfox ISH:

This was inspired by a full-size horse blanket (by John Whitaker, I believe) and I knew that I needed to make it for one of my CF horses.

It was also another gusset experiment, on a thicker blanket this time. The gussets themselves were made from an image of the Union Jack that I edited, resized and had printed on fabric for miniature work. I should have made it a bit narrower but I still think it looks ok.

I also decided to add tongue buckles to the front straps, which makes taking it on and off a bit more fiddly but hey, it’s the little details, right?

I’m really happy with how it turned out!

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ˜€ 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!! โค )

Copperfox Trifle

Another Copperfox model made her way to the herd a while back, but it’s taken me ages to get proper photos taken. This is Trifle, the Exmoor pony.

She is really nice in person, and I especially love her mealy nose.

The sculpt reminds me of a pregnant or nursing mare, so I hope we’ll get a Exmoor foal to go with her eventually. That would be perfect!!
