An extreme sabino Cheveyo that I just finished up in the studio, owned by Haleigh Penca.  I'm pretty happy with how this guy turned out.  It was a lot of fun to do such an unusual color!  And, I sculpted my very first tiny little snake to go with him as a striking partner.  Super fun stuff!

I used to dread doing bases for models because I wasn't very good at them, but now I am starting to enjoy creating scenery.  I really enjoy doing bases now!  

I sculpted my very first little rattler!  He's about 1/2" an inch in size.  I thought it would be cute to make one for the mustang Cheveyo.

              An "updated" reworked stablemate cm mustang.

One of my customers was nice enough to send back and older piece that I'd created back in 2004. It was broken and needed some TLC, so I updated him to be LSQ again.  This guy is made from the rearing fat bloaty stablemate G2 arab with a TB head.  I did a lot of reworking and sculpting to the plastic to make him look like an appropriate mustang.  The updated version turned out to be a cute little buggar.  His new range base is made out of an old coat button - how's that for ingenuity...? Ha ha!

On tap for dinner tonight is my homemade pot stickers.  (I make some BIGGUN stickers...)  =:)  They're one of my favorite meals to create.

My shell pinching isn't as pretty as some of the ones that I've seen on the internet, but hey - it tastes just as good!  I can generally put just about any kind of meat in the stickers, but tonight I decided on a shrimp scampi.  Along with the shrimp there is: cream cheese, fresh cilantro, and some Italian herbs for seasoning.  It was tasty and filling....
I REALLY like this video!  Normally I don't care for most of the promos for our breed, but this is one of the better clips that I've seen in a long time.  Even though the stallion is on the smaller side, it just doesn't matter!  This rider has a GREAT relationship with his horse.  It does my heart good to see this, and it helps to restore my faith just a little bit.  There might be some hope after all...
