This little guy has been resculpted into a part-Arabian with his face dished, neck straightened, mane and tail replaced, and boy bits added. As always, there is a lot I’d improve about him if I had another chance, but for where I was at the time he’s pretty darned good.

As you can tell, the tobiano pattern needs some work. He’s doesn’t have the nice rounded edges you’d expect of a straight tobiano, but he’s also doesn’t have enough overo markers to make him a tovero.

Moonlight Dancing and Nighttime Blues were customized as a pair so that the person who had put in the custom order had a choice between horses. I’m always a little leery of custom orders that give me a lot of leeway, so I prefer to give folks choices if I can (like I did with Angel’s Kiss and Pure Malarkey).

Nightime Blues

As I remember, the customer ended up picking Nighttime over Moonlight, but since the both of them sold on eBay I can’t be sure. I really need to find my notes! :p
