This is all thats left of poor mr unicorn ice horse...I came out on Christmas morning to go have breakfast in pennys house and . I was met with a headless horse.. poor guy. He kinda looks like he is sleeping..
His head didn't all of or even really melt.... it kind of curved/curled over.. see his horn is stabbing his leg.. or what would have been his leg!
you can see his back leg better now though with the new snow on him! lol well maybe later this winter if it snows again I will try a new one! it is actually snowing now again but they say it will turn to rain later today..I sure hope so! But..Im a little worried about flooding.. you should see all the snow piled on the outside walls of the barn that had fallen off the roof! man its deep! and we are going to have one yucky muddy mess I can see .. But I think the dogs and I will be glad when its gone so they can get out and really move!
This is what I made Rick for Christmas.. it was a farrier ornament I pulled the peg out of his head and made him a hat... like what Rick wears all the time.. and shaved off some belly as Rick is not fat at all! and I repainted him...
Then I took a Hagen Renicker porcelain Anvil and a schletch horse and made him a halter then made a base, added rocks, grass and gravel and glued them all on..Oh I gave the horse some hay too. its how he shoes but usually he has it in a wheel barrow..
Penny says he loves it.. now I need to get a nice piece of wood and mount it on.
For Penny Im making a book of the farm with iphoto and Apples iphoto site to make actual one of a kind books! its pretty neat and doesn't cost too much.. and I'll have a very professional glossy papered hard cover book of the farm with pics of all the seasons and all the horse's in it.. we may just have to do one a year! heres a link to see what Im talking about : http://www.apple.com/ilife/iphoto/printproducts/
someday I want to make one of all my sculptures... Oh penny got me a pair of Ariat riding boots and a troxel riding helmet.. .. haven't seen the gift from my kids yet.. hopefully my son will make it over on sunday to give me my stocking full of little gifts.. oh... Kory may be putting up a 25% off sale on whatever she has of my sculptures or remakes of mine.. (she sells for me) its an end of the year sale. I'll post a link to the sale when she does... Im also working on a mare and foal pony remake and painting one of my welara resins and will have them for sale soon I hope! I will post pics when they are done.
I hope you all had a great Christmas!
