If the worst part of participating in these monthly photo challenges is having to choose favorites, the best part is being inspired to dust off and re-appreciate some of the long forgotten favorites. This is Sinful Daughter. She is a custom Peter Stone ISH painted by Tracy Reedy. I bought her in 2006.At the time, Tracy was selling a lot of wet-look Appaloosas on eBay. I thought they were the coolest thing and sold a lot of halters and bridles to be able to afford this one.
I took her to a few shows, but she never did well. That's not a deal breaker for me. If I like a horse, I'm happy to own it regardless of its competitive potential. However, after a while, I do tend to stop taking the no-hopers out. Sinful has been retired and living on a shelf for a long time. So long, in fact, I don't think she's ever been featured on this blog.
That's an injustice. I still think this horse is cool.
Today's prompt for the Shelter & Share Photo Challenge is "Spring Cleaning - What did you unearth?" I decided to ignore the second part because "Spring Cleaning" clearly equals a bath photo, and I have the perfect horse for that! Here's what I came up with.
The prompt for the April Photo Challenge is "Resin or Custom?" Once again, I am featuring an Appaloosa purchased in the pre-blog stage of my hobby life. This is Sweet Side. She is a Parrs Dream Doll resin customized and partially painted by Simrat Khalsa. I bought her as an unfinished project in the mid 2000's and completed her myself. She is the best choice for this prompt because, in addition to being a customized resin, she is often mistaken for a customized Peter Stone weanling.
That's it for today!
