First horse of 2008



This guy was the first horse out of the kiln for the new year. He's a rare custom order, donated to a benefit auction for Habitat for Humanity. I think he looks a little worried in this photo. Maybe he knows we are supposed to get more snow in the morning!



His color is a little off in these photos. In person he's more mousey and less tawny. I rely a great deal on the natural light in the house when I take photos, and there hasn't been much of that with all these storms. Hopefully I'll get the chance to get better photos when the weather clears.

He is GORGEOUS!!! I love the body color and especially love how well that tail came out! Gosh, that is so hard to do and you do it so effortlessly. Gorgeous!

Wonderful horse, my friend, as always. Glad to see your working on so many fun things. And I agree with Jenn: you do great frosty tails!
