Fuego Lento, loosely translated is Slow Fire and part of my ‘mutilate foreign languages’ kick of naming things.

This little gal was one of my favorite non-portrait customs that came out of this mold. (Interestingly I think I ended up doing more portrait horses on this mold than anything else.) The bay coloring had this lovely copper shimmer to it and the blending was nice and smooth.

She was one of the few horses that I’d be willing to bring to a live show, even if I know it’s still not at the level of the high priced competition. Yet another custom that I wish I’d kept instead of sending into the wilds of eBay.

Still, I can’t keep them all (or at least that’s the working theory) so better that she go to someone else who thought she was as awesome as I did. I have no idea what happened to her once she left the house, but I hope she’s still decorating someone’s shelves. Always odd to think that these little guys may have been re-customized, but at least I have the photos to reminisce on.
