Artist's Description

OK, I confess my other “sad” hobby is collecting model horses (as if I don’t have enough real ones to keep a girl happy!) I blame my parents really, for not giving me the pony I asked for from the time I figured what Santa was for LOL.

Anyway, I started collecting the old Britains horses in the late 60s, I was young (honest), but collected them well into my teens. About 8 years back a friend introduced me to the grown-ups collecting world & the joys of Breyer, Peter Stone & artists resins … now there are over 500 of these critters sharing the house (it is a recognised addiction, really, just ask the partner of any collector).

This is the one that arrived most recently – it started life as an unpainted resin called “Calamity Jane” by Sarah Isherwood – an extreme customisation of the Breyer mold “Silver”. The resin then got sent to my friend who customises models (check out Arcadian7) where it was turned into a portrait model of my appaloosa show mare, “ST True Colours” (see below). Now I haven’t done the whole background scene set-up, it’s too scary to leave her out on the shelf with 3 persians lurking in the wings, but here’s my rodeo bronc with sass & wild colour!
