Happy Holidays, everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and all is well wherever you may be.

If you have a commission with me and you don't see you name here, don't worry, I just neglected to put it here!

In other news, we have a brand new Christmas tree this year. The old one, which has been in the family for nearly 30 years, had to be retired last year. We put up the new one last week, and a certain someone had to inspect it:

That's our brat for you!

Have a wonderful holiday season, everyone!

Latest from DRS

Yes, I'm still here. Just not blogging all that much.

Customized Border Fine Arts mare on eBay, click here to see all photos and details!


Well, the dog OS project is a flop. Due to my screwing up, the sculpture was ruined when I primered it, then tried to strip it with Power Dissolver. Yeah...

So, no more OS's for now. I'll be focusing on customizing existing model dogs instead.

Custom orders are moving along. I had to take a break for a week to recover from oral surgery(three wisdom teeth pulled, ow). But I am picking up the slack now.

I will post progress photos soon!

DRS Custom Feature!


This is "Tallcloud", a custom Breyer Nokota in flaxen chestnut sabino. He placed second in his very first live show. He has since been sold, and happily resides in Washington state with his new owner.

What a weird cat...

Taking part in the eBay strike and something new!

I am taking part in the eBay strike, and any horses I put up for sale will be listed to Model Horse Sales Page or elsewhere. I will advertise here when they go up.

Now moving on to other things, I am currently working on something new, my very first completely original sculpture! Not a horse, but a dog, a working type Bearded Collie. He is Traditional scale(1:9 to 1:10 scale), and sculpted in polymer clay.


Here's the link to more in progress photos:

He will be for sale when completed, so stay tuned!

New custom up on eBay/Still not used to blogging!

Even after all this time, I'm still not used to blogging! Sheesh...

Anyway, my latest work is this lovely lady, "Saltwater Taffy".


She is the new resin release "Netzky", a Pebbles/Little Bit scale pony by the ever popular Lynn Fraley of Laf'n Bear Studios. Inspired by Bill the Pony from Peter Jackson's LOTR: The Fellowship of the Rings, I painted her to this warm red flaxen chestnut with a blaze and four socks.

Sold on eBay.

All right, back to my other customs. I will have in progress photos next time, for those of you who have custom orders with me.

Until next time, folks!
