I was totally and completely blown away by Faith. She was, at that time anyway, the most amazing piece of equine art I'd ever seen. In the space of just a few minutes I became a huge Pamala Hutton fan.
Pamala is no longer in the model horse hobby, but her work has stood the test of time. Her pieces are highly sought after and command huge prices whenever they come up for sale. Probably a lot of today's hobbyists have never seen a Hutton horse in the flesh, so it was a real treat for everyone showing at the recent Devilish Kokopelli Live show to have not one, not two but eight Hutton horses in attendance.
All of these beauties are owned by Heather Malone and Marilyn Jensen.
Direct Deposit, a customized Breyer Semi Rearing Mustang owned by Heather, was one of Pamala's earliest pieces.In the decade since most of these model were created, the overall level of finishwork in the hobby has risen significantly. They probably do not seem quite as mindblowing now, as they did back then, but still... These are some amazing models! Many thanks to Heather and Marilyn for all their help with the Parade of Huttons photo shoot..
Although not as accomplished as some of her later work, this guy still holds his own in the showring.
Cherry Midnite Frost is also owned by Heather.
The lovely, soft facial detailing is a hallmark of Pamala's work.
Inimitable is a Laura Behning Willy Remember Me resin.

This little Darfendi resin is named Klassique.
Such a cute face!
Marilyn Jensen is the lucky owner of this customized Breyer Wixom.
Her name is Marigold.
Sacred Omen also belongs to Marilyn.
I am not a big fan of Kathleen Moody's sculpts, but I could make an exception for this guy.
Here's another Moody I could fall in love with. This is Heather's Champagna Siempra.
My photos really do not do any of these guys justice. The lighting in the show hall wasn't ideal and I had to use a flash. Trust me, they are all even more amazing in person.
