I am about to begin working on a Peter Stone custom that needs SERIOUS work. I won it in a raffle at a show so I could remake it. It now has a resin head, & a new neck attached to the original chestnut pinto body. It was an Arabian stallion (?) who is now a mare.

I know, two posts in two days. I am going to talk about the not so normal uses for eye shadow, like painting a horse. It is easy. Just take a paintbrush, dip it in your color & apply. This is easier to blend & get the right color. It is also a lot cleaner than painting. I have used this method before, but only over horses that have one or two layers of paint. Without paint, you have to use ways to many colors. Eyeshadow is not a good basecoat, it is better for depth & tops. Try eyeshadow for a cleaner way to paint your ponies!
The trainer I ride with has found me a horse to buy. Finley is a half Thoroughbred & half Connemara gelding. His half brother does 3 day eventing & father is a lesson pony. I will get pictures when I try him out. He is a dark bay or black with a light brown nose. He can jump & his canter looks comfy.
