Minature Pony Stallion Jig

My latest sculpt is the adorable little chunky monkey 'Jig'. A spunky little black and white pinto stallion, a whole 8.1hh in real life. I am sculpting Jig in classic scale 1:12, so he is tiny! 10cm to the very tips of his little tiny ears, and the front cannon bones are a teeny 75mm! It is proving fairly difficult to manoeuvre my skewers in and around his legs for sculpting. But an enjoyable process none the less watching the little fellow emerge from the clay. Here is the little fellow a few hours in....... I think I am going to tilt his nose out a bit more, for a whole lot more attitude. My paddocks are graced with a couple of these little guys, and I am constantly amused by their naughty antics. I love the way they don't realise how small they are, just ask them and they will tell you they are 17hh! They rule my larger horses with a iron fist, are talented escapees, will do just about anything for food, and worm their way into the hearts of everyone they meet.

Barnon Imperial Jack

It was a heart warming hand over with Jack. I was absolutely chuffed with the finished results and the owners more so. He looked great on the day. A copy of Jack will now be prepped and sent to America for proffesional casting. With his faux bronze counterpart Jack, Whisper and Treasure in trophy form for the Barastoc M&M classes. There were also two New Forest Pony plaques, that unfortunately had been collected before I managed to stop and grab photos.
