It's MOSTLY done...I need some supplies to arrive so I can finish the driver and the base. and I'd also like to get some pictures with a better backdrop and natural lighting. ;) But here he is for now!

Thanks, guys! I'm glad you like him. He's kind of a boring color, but I think it looks good on him.

Thanks, Liz. Yep, I made the harness. There's more to come...a driver and a racetrack base. :) Oh, and the shadow roll that my cat ate needs to be re-done.

Thanks! Yeah...really dark Standardbreds are some of the most beautiful horses to me. I knew I should have picked a flashier color for him, but I just couldn't see him in anything but super dark brown. I need to get better pics this weekend in natural light so his true color comes through better.

Do you work with the horsey treadmill there at Cornell, then?

That was one of the coolest things I ever had the priviledge to see! (Went to visit them when they were stress testing prior to a Fingerlakes Live show some years ago).

Not with the treadmill, but in the regular equine hospital. We see a lot of STBs with airway problems and orthopedic problems... but they're sooo cute! The breed grows on ya ;)

He looks great, Melissa! I LOVE his color-- big fan of dark standardbreds (well, and standardbreds in general-- used to have a road horse) here, too! :adore

Will you paint my Hambletonian? :hubba :hubba :hubba

He's great! Love the tack, can't wait to see more.
STB's aren't meant to be flashy! He's perfect!

Thanks! :) I think "boring" STBs are better, too. It's so classic. ;)
