Lone Star Pony
Horses of a Different Color,
"Not Your Mother's Breyer Horses"
Having Fun with Model Horses

It was truly the "Cow Parade" that inspired me. The first "Cow Parade" in the U.S. was in Chicago in 1999. When I saw the painted cows I thought, "We should have painted horses."

I had an old Breyer Made in China copy and I decided to paint it with the Texas flag on one side and Texas stuff on the other such as the Alamo, bluebonnets, cactus and the Space Shuttle. I called it the "Lone Star Pony" and I put a picture of it on my website and took the original to a horse show.

My "Lone Star Pony" sold at the horse show and when I got home someone had ordered the one I had on my website. All I had was the one! So I had to make more.

Soon I was painting model horses with the American flag, hot rod flames, world map, themes like fox hunting, bird hunting, "Valley Girl", Army camo, and more. Then art themes: Picasso, van Gogh, Klimt. Historical themes: Ancient Greece, Ancient Egypt. The sky's the limit.

The models can be customized beyond recognition of their original source. Example. Or they can be customized to look like your horse in a "Mini Portrait.
