Years ago in the mostly undocumented, pre-blog part of my hobby life, I bought a Cat Bercier Balllycor resin. Because she was marketed as a traditional scale Connemara, I was expecting something pony sized. Instead, I got a full sized horse. Once I got over my disappointment, I decided to make her a fluffy cob. I cut off her neck and reset it, and made an attempt at feathers. That didn't go well, so I temporarily put her aside.
And then she sat for more than a decade.
