Yesterday my August subscription horse finally arrived in the mail. He was totally worth the wait. I saw a pic of him on Facebook last week and couldn't wait to get mine. This is one of those horses where I wish I had gotten 2. His breed is rather odd, I've never heard of it, but I thought that he would make a great pinto mustang. I will send him to AZ hopefully Friday to be painted like a rather well known mustang. I think it would fit him really well. I still haven't gotten my Windswept yet, I was told that there are molding problems. Sigh. I really want him here now!!! I have so many ideas for him and now that I'm using my final idea on another horse I have to think of something else for him. I keep thinking that he should be a pinto or bay, or grey, or appy, or something else all together. It's hard.
On the show front I have done nothing over the last few weeks other than working on the show totes and the saddle pads. I finally started on the last set of pads this afternoon but I really like how it looks so far so it might stay with me. Especially since I don't have a pad to use myself for the show. My plan in to spend all of Saturday working on model stuff. I only have 2 totes left to finish, they only need their fleece cut and assembled. I bought a rotatory cutter last weekend and it was one of the best things I have bought for crafting. It cuts the fleece with no problems and I save fabric because I can run the blade along a metal ruler to get a better edge. It has cut my fleece cutting time down by more than half. I broke down a bought some pink fleece for the totes due to the finished ones looking a little mono-chromatic. I really don't like pink, so I'm doing it last and want to spend as little time working on it as possible.
The traveling pony from last week did arrive here at the house. She is so cute!! In my brain I thought she had more white than she really does, but I love her none the less. I always giggle when I think about when I first saw Cupcake. I thought it was ugly. I knew I was going to list her, but when I saw the painted one I just had to have her. I sold the unpainted one the same day I bought a painted one. I also got 2 RR Clydesdale the same day. They come in 2 halves and you have to put them together. I decided that I was going to remove the harness off the one horse and leave the other one in her show stuff. They look just like the Breyer Clysedale standing mare, but in Micro scale. They are about an inch tall and are officially my smallest horses yet.
That's about it really. I will be listing a few more horses tonight to try and get some show money, but nothing too exciting.
Until next time,
Happy New School Year.
