I’ve only done a few of the blue-green shaded horses, but I love the way the colors meld together. Someday I’ll have to try a solid colored one, without as much chrome to distract from the shading.

This little guy was one of my earlier customs, but he did quite well in photos shows when he was in my show string. Not sure if his new owner kept showing him or not, but I hope they enjoyed his multi-colored whimsy as much as I did!
