MEPSA Donation #2: Color Poll

The second custom I’m working on as a MEPSA donation is a G1 Morgan Stallion. I’ve given him a better tail, delineated mouth, more refined forelock, real stallion parts, and completely redone his club feet. He looks rough without primer, but he’s going to be really nice with some color on him.

I’m torn about what color to paint him. I definitely want it to be something found in Morgans, since he has such nice type. I’ve picked out a number of option and want you to help me decide! As with my previous poll, please vote for your three favorites using the gallery and poll below. Click to enlarge the pictures.

 

MEPSA Donation #1: Color Poll

I really enjoy showing with the Model Equine Photo Show Association, or MEPSA. This year I am working on two models that will be prizes in the year end championship show. Last year’s show was super fun and I was very thankful to win some beautiful prizes, including the First Draft resin that became my little foal Kaylee. I wanted to help out this year so I’m working on some customs. But I need your help picking colors!

The first custom is on the G2 Appaloosa. I’m envisioning him as a dun appy, but I’ve picked out a few possibilities. What do you like best? Please vote for your three favorites using the gallery and  poll below. Click to enlarge the pictures.

Sun and Fun

It’s been really lovely here the past week, which I hope means some I’ll be able to do some cross country schooling soon. I had a fabulous jump lesson this week- Cochise went over all sorts of scary new kinds of jumps with little fuss and no muss. Afterwards it was even warm enough to hose the horses off a bit. It only made a small dent in all of winter’s sweat and grim, but it’s a start.

In the model horse world, I finished up my donation for Plastic Ponies on Parade, a Michigan live show benefiting animals in need. I painted a micro mini standing draft mare to a chestnut tobiano with mapping and little blue ribbons. Her hooves and lower legs have been refined to escape the micro mini blob look. She’s super cute.
