Dafydd goes to Oz

Dafydd is one of my all time favorite molds, this snotty little Welsh stallion has what it takes to carry a paint job either fancy or sublime.

Here's a sooty dapple buckskin tobiano Dafydd, who has already arrived at his new home in Australia. I'm very tickled with him!

The kiln is firing again tonight, with the last of 2010's horses. Then, a couple of weeks to clean out the workshop; make new molds; finish a few old projects; and give the kiln a tune-up (it's been firing reliably for 15 years now, with nary an adjustment... it needs some wires tightened and a temperature calibration to start its sixteenth year)

Callahan, the Small and Mighty!

Adalee Velasquez sculpted Callahan, an Irish Draft stallion, and has glazed one in a gorgeous, meticulous bay appaloosa which is on My Auction Barn right now. Addi's appaloosas are so amazing, that if you haven't seen one is person, you haven't seen how far the art of glazing has come. He's Little Bit scale but you can't tell from his personality.. he thinks that he is Traditional!

Go and check him out, and see more photos at the auction site. Right here!

After Addi marries and moves to Washington State, I am very pleased to be able to say that Callahan will be a Pour Horse... and will come in the first OF run since Otto! It will be a small run, 50 pieces, so that I don't run screaming or develop a nervous tic, (no more 300 piece runs, ever again!) and it will be available first to the people attending BOYCC. He's an awesome little horse and I am very happy to be able to offer him. Of course, there will be customs too, but Addi's custom glazes are so incredible that I only hope that I am up to the challenge! She is doing a limited number of custom Callahans this fall, so watch her list or MHSP for details.
