In my previous blog-entry (week 24) I talked about a special addition that deserved his very own entry. Trying typing this beginning several times, to begin this blog-entry with a bang. But time passed to fast and I still had nothing yet. So I thought, go with the flow and see what will happen. So, I can't wait to let the photos roll around this page and set you in awe. But first, let me take you to the start of the model being in my collection.
A very dear STS member and sculptor of this beauty, posted a sale topic for this model a week ago . It did not last long, as I immediately took my chance and messaged her with the buying offer. I was eyeing for a horse from her hands for some time now. Even more so, when I took a workshop at her home and fell in love with her handmade horses for real <3 She sculpts for a great toy company as well and her models are very well known for their quality. The day after she sent the horse, it arrived. Gosh, never was I shaking so hard when opening a package. He was very well wrapped and it took me some time to unwrap him. Layer after layer he became more and more visible. His brown coat, his black mane and tail, his golden eyes... I was in awe! I had him in my hands now!
It took some time to really realize I had an actual 'Snegir' in my hands. I am SO happy with him. Everything is just perfect. His pose is alert and he is a great leading stallion <3 The details and the shading, oh my! Oke, I will stop chatting now. Lets bring in some photos! Oh, and no photos shown here are bringing any justice to the greatness of this horse! I can promise you that.
I will add a photo of the cards I got with him. Original sculpt card, card from the sculptor and a Live Horsemodel Show winning card, as the sculptor did bring him to a Live Horsemodel Show in Baarn as well. My little champion. He won 3rth place in the category 'colors'. What can I say more than these photos already do? His colors, pose, details are all perfect. Never could I have thought that I would own him in my collection one day <3 Thank you so much Horse and Bird! (http://www.horseandbird.com/blog)
