This is the Breyer Stablemate scale "Thoroughbred Mare" mold, remade into a very unique animal.   After the usual sanding of the seams & removing the Breyer mark, & carving her ears, muzzle, chin, jowl, hooves, heels, & frogs, I carved away the excess plastic between her legs (why must the SMs have this so often?! LOL!) & shaped the area into an udder.  I went on to remove her mane completely & alter her tail to that of a zebra.  Then I sculpted a whole new mane, also to look like a zebra.  As if all that wasn't enough, I just had to make her anatomically correct, of course, so I sculpted all appropriate parts under her tail!  Still a lot of hard work & detail to put into this gal at this point!  I hand-painted her an off-white with tan, added stripes (talk about needing a steady hand!) that blend into the tan body, painted her nose & hooves dark grey, & detailed her eyes.  She is now a Quagga!  This is a type of Zebra that was wiped out, but a program has been formed in an effort to bring them back, breeding Zebras with particular traits.  So far most look a lot like regular Zebras (with a tan cast all over), but eventually it is believed that the old-style Quagga (at least the color) will be back.  This custom model is done to look like the original Quagga.  Please click on the image to see more views....

This is a "Kitten Chow" resin (sculpted by Candace Liddy). He is Stablemate size Zebra colt. He was already prepped & primered from Candy. No alterations were made. I painted him in a combination of airbrush & hand. His off-white body & tan shading were airbrushed. Everything else was hand-painted. His stripes are near black on the face & mane, brown on the neck, fade into his back. He has a brown dorsal stripe that fades into his white tail. His muzzle is a dark brownish grey, with darker nostrils & slight lip-line shading (to bring out his mouth detail). He has tannish grey hooves, light grey genitalia, greyish tan chestnuts & soles. Eyes are detailed with brown iris rimmed in dark brown, black pupil. Finished with protective sealer, matte finish, eyes highly glossed. This guy represents an old-style Quagga (see Quagga mare above). Custom ordered by Rachel D. of Minnesota, who asked me to paint it as such. Lots more pictures, click the image below for more!

L.E. "Mosey-On"  resin. I sanded, prepped, then used primer. This one was the ninth piece painted, so he is engraved with the numeral nine. I airbrushed him to a very light grey (white with light grey shading), & added brown "flea-bites". He has grey shading in inner ears, dark  grey shading on his muzzle & groin, brownish grey shading on knees & hocks. His mane & tail are dark grey multi-colored.  He has one "true" white sock on his left rear leg, with natural/shell hoof. The other legs are light/white with dark brownish grey hooves. All hooves have lighter growth bands. His chestnuts & soles are greyish-tan. Inner nostrils are neutral pink. His eyes are detailed with subtle eyewhites, brown iris rimmed in dark brown, black pupil. Finished with protective sealer, matte finish, eyes glossed, nostrils & hooves semi-glossed. This flea-bitten grey is an "Artist's Choice"  color (not ordered in this color/pattern). No longer available for sale/trade, he is proudly owned by Jennifer G. of Minnesota!

This is the Breyer Stablemate scale "Scrambling Foal" mold (I call it "frolicking"). Seams & Breyer mark removed, sanded, hooves & all frogs carved, ears resculpted & carved, chestnuts added, filly anatomy etc sculpted, mane altered slightly, tail raised. I hand painted her to a neutral grey & white. I then carefully etched each hair into the grey areas, allowing the white undercoat to show through (this is my first "etchie"). I painted her mane & tail a mix of grey, dark grey, & black...with a bit of white in her mane at the withers. I painted black appaloosa spots on her rump...pinto & appy patterns together make this little gal a "Pintaloosa". She has a cute wispy star, where the white follows the direction of the hair on her forehead. Her legs are white, with natural/shell striped hooves. She has mottling on the groin area, under her tail, & on her tailbone. Chestnuts & soles are tan. Her inner nostrils are light pink. Her eyes are detailed with the appy characteristic white sclera, brown iris rimmed in dark brown, black pupil. Finished with protective sealer, matte finish, eyes glossed. Click below to see more of her please!

L.E. "Mosey-On"  resin. This particular piece was to be a portrait model of the customer's real horse, so I needed to make some necessary alterations. This included a gender change (it is now an anatomically correct mare), and resculpted mane & tail, all to reflect that of her living counterpart. I sanded, prepped, then used primer. This resin was the twelfth piece painted, so she is engraved with the numeral twelve. I airbrushed her to a shaded bay. Roaning & other details hand-painted. The roan areas were placed as precise as possible, to match pictures provided of the real horse "Miss Chief Two Deck" , a beautiful Appaloosa (click here to see the real mare). Even the mottling pattern (dark grey & flesh/pink) on her muzzle, udder, & under her tail was reproduced as well as I could from photos presented! I noticed "Missy" had a darker/smutty area around her withers & on her eartips/edges, & a creamy-tan color at her armpits & in front of her udder...I made sure to include those on her portrait. Her mane & tail are black with white hairs...again painted like the real horse. Her legs are black, chestnuts & soles are (slightly greyish) tan. She has dark grey & flesh striped hooves...not very many pix to go from but I did my best to duplicate that as well! Her eyes are detailed with the Appaloosa's trademark white sclera, brown iris rimmed in dark brown, black pupil. Clear-coat protected, matte finish, eyes glossed, nostrils & hooves semi-glossed. The very happy owner is Jamie S. of Washington. Click on "Missy" below to see more pix of her!

Note about Mosey-On orders: Due to the limited run of this resin & the fact that color possibilities are nearly endless for a stock-type horse, I do not plan on repeating colors I have already painted on him.  I *may* make exceptions if Mosey is to be used as a portrait model of your real horse, but I won't guarantee it. Get your requests in quick if you wish to get a certain color! :o)

Also, in case you haven't been to Mosey-On's page to read it by now :o), I will reiterate my policies here: None of Yvonne's resins are to be changed in any way. Painted pieces must not be repainted, altered, etc. Unfinished
pieces (if any) must not be altered (no repositioning etc).
