New minis!

Whew, the last of the spring shows is done. I wanted to get a couple of minis done to show at NAN in halter and performance, but with work its been hard to get some done. I manage to get a few done, the last on the new pieces before I start planning for Breyerfest and finishing some trade models this month. Here goes! These pictures are from the Mini No Frills show this past weekend and are off my phone, so maybe not the best quality. All of these models are available for sale at Breyerfest this year, Blog readers can purchase them ahead of time, email for details! The first  guy is the BOTW drafter with a drastic makeover into a Shire stallion.
 This is the Totalis remade into a pirouetting Azteca stallion in my parade set. He has a bull and bullfighting tack as well on the way, but to get him qualified I used my parade set, which now that I look at it, I think he will be the one I show in it at NAN...
 Here he is side by side with another one that I remade.
 This little paint mare is the BOTW stock horse remade walking and a whole new head set.
I love my Rachel tack! Whats great about these little breyer resins is that they can be remade quite extensively. This little mare is a great performance horse. I only showed her in a few classes, but can't wait to expand her set ups!
Please email for details if you would like any of these guys after Breyerfest! From the next month its all catch up time for me, so there will not be any sale pieces listed until I start doing Breyerfest previews.
Thanks again for tuning in, stay Purdy my friends!

Miami Valley Live

No, I didn't get to go to Florida, but I did get to travel to Ohio this past weekend to attend the Miami Valley Live show. This was a GREAT show with tons of entrants and super high quality competition. D'Arry and I drove together, so I didn't bring a lot of performance stuff, but the show day was fantastic!
 I finally got to show Donnartanzerin in dressage. This tack set by Jen and doll by Jane is one of my all time favorites. I can't wait to show this setup at NAN with my new dressage rails that will be coming soon!
 This new guy is Leeuvonhoek, a dutch harness horse made from the Totalis with a salinero other pictures were all fuzzy, but this one with him in his historical side saddle turned out pretty cool.
 Tiffilicious was overall CM grand champion, and thats the harness horse in the background again. This little belgian below is a horse that I finally got off my backlog list. This is the BOTW drafter remade with clean legs...NOT a fun project but he turned out great. He was overall mini reserve grand champion!
 And look, I have been around Jen to much! This is Marissa, our new pet rat. A student of mine couldn't keep her anymore so we have added her to the Purdy family. She is so sweet! I am sure I will have her under saddle soon!
I have one more show to get qualified for NAN then I can finally finish the last of my trade models. Vicki, your mare is coming I promise!
