Day 7 is Share your favourite piece in your model horse collection.
Hmmm… that’s a hard one! I have quite a few favourite horses, so I’m going to narrow it down to the three that I could never part with. The first one would be Midas, my glossy Peter Stone gifted to me by a very good friend. This is my favourite Stone mold, and he has a beautiful colour, but it’s the memories attached to him that are really special!
Sorry it’s a few days late!
Day five is Create something for your models or try a new skill.
Recently I’ve been using crystals on my tack, so I thought I’d share some of my new pieces on this post! First I made a purple diamonte halter for Doodlebug,
Day 2 is Name your model or barn.
All my horses have the prefix CWS (Cedar Wood Stables) in front of their show name, but I do have a few that don’t have a stable or pet name.
Meet CWS Cambridge Blue. This gorgeous guy came to live with me after my first end-of-year exams. I wanted a show name that was classy and reflected school in some way. His stable name is Cambridge, and he has lots of pet names (He is a riding school pony after all!) Some of his pet names are Cam, Cammy, Blue, Bluey, Cam-cam… Oh you get the idea! 😂
Here is his colour scheme
I’m also combining day three in this post because i forgot to do Day 2 yesterday! (Eeeek!)
Day Three is Be a Model Horse.
If I were a model horse, I think I would be on the Wintersong mold, the Cleaveland Bay mold or the Bluegrass Bandit mold. For colour, something like a loud frame overo or dark bay blanket appy. Oh, and definitely I would have blue eyes and hoof stripes! 😉
Woo! I’m starting the Copperfox 10 Day Challenge, it sounds really fun and you can read more about it here. Day one is Inspiration Day.
I’m inspired by lots of things and people in the model horse community. Some of my favourite and very inspiring blogs are Horse Tender Studio, Braymere Custom Saddlery, Last Alliance Studios, Chestnut Heartbeats, Chex and the Heavies, Tiny Horse Talk, and Trail Blazer Farms. All these blogs have so much time and energy put into them! To be honest, all the creativity in the model horse community really is amazing!
I’m also inspired by this photo (credit to owner)
I’d love to one day have a conga like this on the Rearing Andalusian SM mold.
I also want to paint a Rearing Andy to look like this (and add to the growing conga) 😀
Can’t wait to tackle Day 2!
