Every so often I pull a complete blank on why I painted one of the models… this little guy is a perfect example. I know he was probably an Add-a-Foal, but darned if I can figure out for whom.

From the background in the photos and the lack of focus, I’d place this guy as one of the earlier customs. I was doing matching Add-a-Foals at that point, where the foal had to be the same color as the ‘parent’ model.

So you’d think he’d go with Indigo Thunder—only that model has more recent photos.

Although at one point I did resell some of my older models under commission for a collector who was getting out of the fantasy end of things, so I wonder… Hmm.

Darnit, I need to keep better notes!
