Wee tiny ones!  The micros can sometimes be a challenge to paint, but they are so darned cute when they're done. 
I turned the little Bogucki Myopia into a Marwari by curving her ears and giving her a dappled and mapped grey tobiano paintjob.  The Bennett micro jumper has a water type base at the bottom of the jump, and I also added some checkerboard quarter marks on the rump.

Oh, those crazy little sheep!  One of our yearlings decided that the grain bucket in the pasture was a great place for him to cuddle up and take a nap.  He had the whole entire pasture..... but the bucket was so much better.

A recently completed "Dolittle" pony resin that I painted as a silver dapple pinto for owner Natalie Sherard.

A photo of "Kaleidescope Kowboy" an older piece that I painted and created a custom base for a few years back.  It looks like he's doing pretty good winning ribbons at live shows.  The photo is courtesy of Karinny Hullahti.

The best laid plans of mice and men......

I got the new saddleseat tack set and I absolutely ADORE it!!!!!  Really great craftsmanship on this tack set.  But it's a big set.....  I put the tack on the model, and then set the half naked doll on top of it, and it's just a bit on the "largish" side.....  So now I'm re-tweeking my plans again.  I've got a large traditional model in my collection that this Honrath set will look absolutely fabulous on (see photos below), so I'll set this tack set aside and paint the model at a later time for it.

So, currently I'm on the hunt for a classic sized saddleseat saddle in a different color that will fit the doll and the model.  I won't give up....

These are blurry pictures, (my cheap Walmart camera struggles terribly when it comes to extreme close-up zooming.....), but I thought this bird was kind-of cool looking.  I have no idea what kind of bird it was, but he was different from the finches that were hanging around the bird feeder.  He had some neat white "racing stripes" on his head, and the stripes made what looked like a cross on the back of his head.  I really enjoy seeing all the different ones that come to the feeder.
