    Default Pinto Horse Christmas Present

    This is for my four year old goddaughter, Korrin. Its one of two horses that I am custom painting as part of her Christmas present. This is the first time I've painted something three dimensional. It was an interesting experience. This horse still needs a name too. I want to have a big bow on her with the name when she goes under the tree.

    Before:


    AFTER!






    And don't I just look proud? lol (they are BIG horses!) and me all comfy in pj pants and a nice sweater!


    I'm going to take better photos tomorrow, when its light out. I was just so excited I had to snap some and post em.

    What do yall think? Should this flip the switch of a four year old in the thick of her horse stage?

    Oh wow, that horse is way bigger than I thought it was! She's going to LOVE it! Heck, I would have loved that when I was like 14. I customized a model horse once, it's definitely harder than it looks. Wonderful work!

    wow...I am so jealous. I mean, like seriously jealous...

    Keep in mind, that many girls do not grow out of the horse stage. My parents were convinced mine would fade...uh, that was a negatory.

    Heck it's only getting worse. I've doubled the amount of horses I own this year.

    I am 30, yesterday I was asked what I wanted for christmas and what did I say? "a horse". Seriously, every year since I was probably like 4 I ave ased for a horse, dang Santa has yet to bring it. My neice used to play with my horses, my little pony, other various horses I had like barbie horses, and some sort of diva horses I dont remember wat their brand was called but I know the grey was was Cloe. And if I was offered a horse right now I would get a painted horse or a pinto, I simply love them. Something about girls and horses I just dont understand. Its beautiful!

    Oooh that's one of those big horses they sell at Target right? I had 2 of them awhile back. One was a buckskin that I left the way it came, and the other was a black thoroughbred that I repainted as a buckskin appaloosa (yea I love buckskins haha...)
    Your Goddaughter will love her horse! Came out great!
    I never got the live horse I always asked for either haha
