Akecheta is my Mustang Breeds of the World Resin. His name means “Fighter” in Sioux, a Native American language. I wanted to make him a bright, interesting halter, but I didn’t have any patterned ribbon. Instead, I used strips of Washi Tape (Japanese paper tape) to accent his halter! I’m soooo happy with it and I think he looks great! I’ll be making some for my Schleichs and Traditionals too!
These last two days have been very productive! I have made a green and polka-dotted foal blanket for Cody,
And upgraded two old halters, Harley’s and Smarty’s.
Harley’s now has some really cute little galloping horses on the cheekpieces,
And Smarty’s has a padded fluffy noseband. Smarty’s halter also goes really well with an old bareback pad I made a while ago.
I’m really happy with it because I don’t do a lot of sewing and it was sewn by hand. 😀
I don’t think I posted this, but a while ago I made a figure-8 bridle and saddle, I’m pretty happy with the saddle, but I really love the bridle!
I have a really big WIP (work in progress) but that deserves a post of its own! 🙂
CWS has some new foals! They are bred out of Foxy, one of our best western mares, and an leopard Appaloosa stallion who stands at another stud. Bubbles (Standing) has inherited her sire’s leopard coat and is really bubbly and cheeky! Confetti (laying) has her dam’s bay coat, but with a bay appaloosa blanket. She is really cuddly and affectionate, but a little more shy than her twin. The twins are three months old, as CWS made a deal with the stud farm that the staff there would halter-train them, as they had a very good record with training young horses. Now time for some pictures!
Expect regular updates on their progress!
