Weekly Round-up

 Got this week done early to make up for being late last week. ^.^ Plus I have to work for the next two days.

So first up, brown paint filly, Ahead of the Lane. One of her parents has also been done by me, Ahead of the Game. That is SO cool! Loved working on her mane and came up with a different way to do multicolored hair.

 Next is a bay Arabian stud, Desert Challenge. I had so much fun doing his star and snip, as well as the rope nose band.

 A challenge approaches! This was my final one this week (sorry I'm out of order and lazy with it). Bay Standardbred trotter mare, Secret Diary. Soooo much tack!

 Next is a black filly, Shelby Cobra. I'm lovin' that whispy hair, makes a static pose look a lot more dynamic.

Last, is another generation filly, black paint, Sneaky Indian. I did the parent Sneaky Monkey. How cool is that? I love her subtle splotch and the Rogue-esque streak of white.

And that's all folks! I'll probably be doing 6 next week, that should be fun!

Weekly Round-up

Sorry, I'm late. Easter weekend was busy! Lots of Paints last week, made for interesting ways to show the splotches...

First up, gray paint mare, Cash Monkey. Lord, it took me forever not to say "Money". :P

Second, Chick Fight, a bay filly. I love her nose. ^.^

Third, a chestnut colt, Gift of the Sun. His hair was difficult, but I had fun with his nose.

Forth, a buckskin paint colt named Gunpowder Justice. I wanted to westernize him sooo bad. Ended up giving him "primitive markings" like our barn horse, Jack.

Last, blue roan paint colt, Jet Blue Image. That mane about killed me, but I like how it turned out. ^.^

 Should be doubling up a lot this week preparing for the incoming weather. :P

Weekly Round-up

This week we have mostly black horses, a Standardbred trotter (my first one!), a bay (there's always a bay), and a gray Appy. 3 fillys, 1 colt, 1 stallion.

Frozen Accounts is our gray blanket Appaloosa filly. Mottling is so hard... but at least I got to do some nifty patterning along the cheeks.

Next up, our only dark bay this week, Up In Lights.

 For Collision Course, the owner requested an interesting star marking. I've been wanting to do a "c" since I saw one on a barn horse named Cider. I thought this would be an appropriate marking for Collision Course. ^.^

 My first Standardbred trotter racer, Money Obsessed, all black no marking colt. SO much TACK! Gah, my hand died that day.

 Last, but not least, our stallion with his very flashy markings. ^.^ I had a lot of fun with him.

Weekly Round-up

So, this week was slow starting off. It's like I was slogging through mental mud. :P Still got five horses done though! Four stallions and a filly this week.

First up, It'smybirthdaytoo, a chestnut Arabian stallion. I'm always confused by the long names the racing world comes up with...

Tumbarse al Sol, a bay leopard Appaloosa stallion. Soooo fun to do those spots!

Blue Montana Gold, a grullo bald faced stallion. Preeetty boy. ^.^
Our only filly this week, Venetian Nights, a palomino. I kinda went crazy with the girliness because I was going through girl withdrawls doing so many boys! Thus- luscious eyelashes.

Last, Fleeing Fast, bay Quarter Horse stallion.

So it was a pretty colorful week and I stretched my color muscles on the palomino and the grullo. ^.^

Weekly Round-up

This week I have SIX horses! Okay, so one is a redo, but it was needed.

First up, Lexluther, a roudy bay colt.

Saraphina Fox, is a classy dark bay lady. 

Next was one of the hardest horses this week. I'd never done a cremello paint before... Big Risky is our stallion this week. ^.^

Next is a pretty bay filly, Memorial.

Last of the assigned horses, is Sauvignon, a bay filly.

The redo was of a grullo leopard Appaloosa stallion. First off, this isn't a "pretty" horse to begin with... but MAN, I've come a long way. Given, when I was doing the first one, I had just found out that the baby filly in my barn had just passed away, so I wasn't really in a good place while working, but it's always been in the back of my mind to redo this one. SO, Blue Apache, free redo for you!
