General model stuff as it relates to my personal experiene and observations.

  1. Grey Friesian

    He arrived yesterday! He is in fine shape with one noticeable flaw on his left hock. It is noticeable beacuse the shading makes it stand out. Don't know if it is fixable.

  2. Still Friesians

    I finally nabbed a grey Friesian. I named him Agincourt, for the great battle in the 100 years war because he really reminds me of the warhorses in use at the time.

  3. friesians, can't seem to get enough of them

    My second bay arrived yesterday. He's a bit more beat up than the first, with really noticeable rubs and scratches on both sides of his body. I need to do quite a bit of touch up work to even be able to photo show him with a harness team.

  4. Stone horses.....

    I also like some of the Stone horses. They are not as easy to acquire because of price but I have a few. My first one was a Stardust unicorn, think performance horse mold in goldish grey with a short horn. I also have a western pleasure horse, an Arab trunk show Opal [blue] and an ISH grulla dun. One palomino Pebbles and a set of the Four quarters.
