More pics of my WIP jumping pony, Secret Weapon. He's a drastic custom with portions contributed by a Marigold, a Classic Arabian Mare, and two Classic Arabian Stallions. I initially put this guy together a couple years ago, but it's taken me a while to get the courage to finish him.
I'm really glad I waited because his customizing work ended up much more elaborate than I originally planned. I intended him to be a light grey Connemara I would use strictly for performance. I had tack made in anticipation.
I'm now pondering how those red boots, breastcollar and saddle pad are going to look on an orange chestnut. Ouch. Yeah, I may be buying new tack--or not putting tack on him at all.

I've been helping out with the NAN auction this year and this is one of my contributions. I'll be painting 20-something color changing customs for our party volunteers! The patterns and molds will vary, but they will all be painted in color changing "pearl" paint.
