Works in Progress

  My workshop has been absolutely filled with little wooden ponies this week! In addition to several special custom orders, I am in the process of creating a small herd of Special Edition hobby horses modeled after the beautiful baroque Friesian breed, accented with hot pink sequins, feathers, and other flashy embellishments.  These horses will be available later in the season at a large equine event, and part of the proceeds will go to a new startup drill team, Friesians in Pink.  Here's a note from their Facebook Page:  
"Friesians In Pink is a drill team on a mission! We ride to support the fight against breast cancer through the promotion of the wonderful Friesian horse!"

Another design coming together in the past few days is an adorable brown and white draft horse with a ridiculously long, thick multicolored mane.  I love ponies with bedhead!  I have been on a work horse kick lately, drawing inspiration from Shires, Belgians, Percherons - I love any horse with a thick neck and kind eyes!  I am toying with the idea of giving this particular pony a nice leather work harness, complete with blinders, etc.  Stay tuned to see how it develops!  :)
