‘Pouca Sombra’ means ‘Little Shade’ in Portuguese, which follows the general Babelfish-themed naming patterns for the Paso Fino mold. Someday I will learn to resist romance languages… but not quite yet. (more…)

Color: Chestnut Tobiano
Gallery: Tobiano
Medium: Acrylics
Status: Painted 2004 and Sold November 2004

This little gal’s name translates into ‘Wind of Summer’ from my rather mangled Portuguese. Nothing like ambushing an unsuspecting language and riffling through it’s pockets for names via Bablefish! (more…)

Color: Dark Bay Tobiano

Yet another Bablefish horse, Bailar Oscuro means ‘Darkly Dancing’ in Spanish (more or less). A nice basic dark bay with an extensive tobiano pattern, this little gal was quite the shelf piece even stuck in amoung her fantasy kinfolk. (more…)
