"Fire & Ice" Arabian SM Scale Set

Image
I ordered a few carpets off of Amazon around the same time I finished up my "Hyacinth" set (lavender + purple + pink set). They came in around a week ago and I decided to give another shot at making an arabian SM scale costume for my lonely arabian artist resin (Paisley) mare.



This set, I decided to call "Fire & Ice", because of the colours that I have chose of course but as well as a Game of Throne reference as well.


In my opinion, I think this set turned out better than the last one that I have completed! Now, if only I had a few more arabian SM scale models that I could show this set on se well! 

I cannot wait to show this set at the next live show!

 I chose not to add tassles to the bridle/halter because Paisley's face is a little small and I feel like it would just cover up her whole head! 
Any critics? Feel free to comment! All feed back is appreciated :)

Making an Arabian Native Tack Set

Image
Stablemate sized tack is always hard, an Arabian native set seemed impossible... But since I got my Arabian resin, in November 2016, it inspired me to make a set specifically for her. 
 The lady that I bought her from (2nd hand or maybe even 3rd) sent her out all the way from Australia! I love Australia and it was a coincidence that my very first Artist Resin turned out to fly in from there :)
I started with making the halter part first, this seemed simple enough, but the chain was a pain to find that didn't look big on her face! Next I started on the neck piece and attached 2 little tiny braids, I decided that this set is going to be lavender, purple and berry pink.  Next came measuring the saddle part and of course making the saddle tree...

Peach decided he wanted to be a part of my tack making as well!

Embroidery was a bit of a pain.... I think I have redone the pattern at least 5 times!

Toronto Live 2017 Model Horse Show Report

Image
Hosted by Lisa Sharpe in Toronto, Canada on April 29th, 2017.  Note: Pictures are taken by me unless I saw that I own a particular horse, that means that it is not owned by me! I am happy to add the names of owners underneath the pictures, so please contact me via comments!

 This time around, I had a lot more horses in my show string for my 3rd Live Show attend, pretty much all my traditionals came except Totilas (Breyer OF) and a handful of minis also did not make the cut. But I am confident to say that 80% of my collection came! Also, in the past shows I have only participated in OF Breyer, OF Stone and OF Minis (as well as a novice CM class in my 2nd show), in this show I participated in: OF Breyer, OF Stone, OF Minis, Novice CM, Novice Performance, Artist Resin and Fun Classes.

In my previous 2 shows, I used half of the table but this time around I ended up using more. But again, half were occupied by horses and the other half with performance and paperwork. I ended up purchasing q…
