The Year of the Mink

Officially, 2011 is the Year of the Rabbit. 
Unofficially, however, it's the Year of the Mink.  Of course when I say "Mink", I'm not referring to a semi-aquatic, carnivorous mammal... 
I'm talking about model horse artist extraordinaire, Sarah Minkiewicz-Breunig!

The Year of the Mink started last November with Dagobert.  Gimme S'more followed soon after, and today I welcomed Mabel to my herd.
While Dagobert and Gimme S'more are resins sculpted by Sarah, Mabel is a resin painted by Sarah.  
She was sculpted by Donna Chaney of Animal Artistry.  
Apparently I like my Minks small and spotted!
Happily for me, the Year of the Mink is ongoing--there will be another addition to my Mink line-up before the Year is through!
