Finally I can show you my new Resin Zula, which is ready to order now!

She's a traditional Mongolian mare, which is scarred by life.
Zula isn't a horse for everybodys taste for sure, but I wanted to do something different and remind the viewer of all the poor horses out there.
This haggard mare is my second original sculpture ever and I devoted a lot of time in this girl in order to give her a at most realistic expression. (At this point I also want to say "Thank you" for all the tips by many Blabbers here)

Here is the link to her add: http://www.modelhorsesalespages.com/view.asp?id=1024166

And here are some pictures of my girl:
First some of a resin (not prepped)

Poor lil mama... she's had a hard life - and yet she perseveres against all odds and hardships and somehow will carry on, for her foal. I think you have captured her spirit - a little sad and tired maybe, yet there's a flicker of a memory of her former glory days... One can almost imagine her life's story.

I especially like the windblown mane and tail. :)

Wow, the reality in that sculpt ... that's not an idealized view of a horse living a perfect life, one that not many of those ponies will ever know.

I am very impressed by your attention to detail. This is a remarkable piece.

I'm really happy you continued on with her. You took reality to a whole new level.

I can totally see the Performance scene.... the ASPCA stepping in to rescue neglected horses.... :) That would be AWESOME!
