Marty McFly Auction


Now on My Auction Barn! (Sometimes the link doesn't work - not a problem! You can either click it again, or they're easy to find on the MAB home page.)

This is "Marty McFly", a custom on the brand new Breyer Bobby Jo. I didn't really intend to do such a drastic resculpt on a great brand new horse, but well... here we are! Marty is now in a slow pivot, perfect for all kinds of performance. His hind legs have been moved closer together for a collected maneuver. His hindquarters were completely resculpted, as was his entire barrel to give him a nice back lift and accommodate his weight shift. His front left was straightened up a bit to make the entire position more upright, and the right leg is now in a relaxed sidestepping motion. Marty's neck is also redone with a slightly arched head tuck. He has a new nose and mouth, new attentive ears, and slightly fatter jaw. He is topped off with a full tail and showy braid pattern in his mane.

Marty McFly has been painted in a glowing sooty dappled palomino sabino. He's crammed with dapples which were painted in multiple layers to enhance the effect of being melded into the coat. Marty's markings are mapped and he is finished off with all the details my work is known for including detailed eyes, hooves with growth rings, textured chestnuts, and mane bands in dark green.

Shipping is $30 including insurance in the US. International shipping will be actual price and quoted at the time of the auction ending. Sorry, I will not put a lower value on the package or mark as gift for international shipments. 

Generous time payments are welcome - I am happy to work with customers to make purchases possible. My usual 30% deposit is not required for this auction. Please inquire before bidding so that I know what to expect.

Reveille Auction



Now on My Auction Barn! (Sometimes the link doesn't work - not a problem! You can either click it again, or they're easy to find on the MAB home page.)

"Reveille" is a drastic custom on the Breyer Wixom - "she" is now a rearing Sugarbush stallion. Very little of the original remains. He still has one original eye, and some parts of his shoulders and upper legs, but is otherwise completely resculpted! Reveille has a fuzzy jaw and ears, slight feathering, a pulled mane, and a cute short tail. His removable stand is very sturdy and keeps him gleefully towering over other horses without any drooping forward. The stand is lined with felt on the bottom to protect your surfaces.

Reveille is painted bay leopard appaloosa with all the bells and whistles for the color, including roaning, peacock spots, mottling, variegated mane and tail, eye sclera and striped hooves. Even his chestnuts are textured and shaded.

Shipping is $40 including insurance in the US. International shipping will be actual price and quoted at the time of the auction ending. Sorry, I will not put a lower value on the package or mark as gift for international shipments.

Aphrodite and Eros Auction

 
Now on My Auction Barn! (Sometimes the link doesn't work - not a problem! You can either click it again, or they're easy to find on the MAB home page.)

This pair, "Aphrodite and Eros" are customs on the brand new Breyer molds Hermosa and Corazon. The mare, Aphrodite, has been customized to be on the bit in a more floaty trot. Her right front leg has been straightened a tad, and she trots on three very stable pegs. (The pegs are photoshopped out in all of their outdoor pics, but she is unaltered in her regular photo set.) Her neck has been resculpted to tuck her head, and she is ready for the show ring in her braids and pulled tail. Aphrodite also has new ears, a new nose, a slightly altered profile and jaw, and new mare parts. Her colt, Eros, also has a new nose, ears, genitalia, and matches his mom with tiny baby braids and a new tail.

Both are greys, though young Eros is currently displaying a silvery shaded black, with only the first hints of grey around his eyes. Aphrodite is a classic beauty in medium dapple grey. She has lots of little nuances like variegated legs with light coronets, black ear rims, and a mix of star and puffier cloud dapples. Both are finished with the all details my work is known for including detailed eyes, hooves with growth rings and textured chestnuts.

Shipping is $30 including insurance in the US. International shipping will be actual price and quoted at the time of the auction ending. Sorry, I will not put a lower value on the package or mark as gift for international shipments.

Nüp Auction



Now on My Auction Barn! (Sometimes the link doesn't work - not a problem! You can either click it again, or he's easy to find on the MAB home page.)

This is "Nüp", a custom Croi Damhsa. Her name is a silly play on "nope" (and is pronounced Noop), which is exactly what she's thinking. Nüp doesn't really mean to be bad; she's just got a bunch of extra energy and needs to get the crazies worked out of her system! She's amped up and ready to go for a day of gaming, and she'll look adorable doing it in her braids and purple bows. In addition to her braids, Nüp has a slightly resculpted face including a new, more tense snorty nose and ears flicked to the side.

What's a gaming pony without an awesome color? Nüp has been painted in oils to a roany leopard appaloosa with mega spotting, rib barring, speckles, mottling, and peacock spots - basically the works! She isn't just solid black either. She has a touch of bronzing on her body, which becomes more intense on her feathers and ear fuzz. She is finished off with all the little details my work is known for including shaded chestnuts, detailed striped hooves, and lifelike eyes.

Nüp also comes with a very special extra - a halter made by Erin Corbett! It includes working tongue buckles, a rolled throatlatch, and even two adjustment buckles under the noseband. The top of the noseband features her name and some little purple crystals for that matchy pop.

Shipping is $30 including insurance in the US. International shipping will be actual price and quoted at the time of the auction ending. Sorry, I will not put a lower value on the package or mark as gift for international shipments.

This is "Bitty Brumby", a bay sabino frame Bitty Bosco resin by Morgen Kilbourn, painted by myself, Mel Miller. Bitty Brumby has oodles of pizzazz from his roany spots to eyeliner, muddy hooves and subtly shaded whites. He has all the details my work is known for including shaded chestnuts, a cute little lip spot, and lifelike eyes.

Shipping is $15 including insurance in the US. International shipping will be actual price and quoted at the time of the auction ending. Sorry, I will not put a lower value on the package or mark as gift for international shipments.

Treats? Auction


Now on My Auction Barn! (Sometimes the link doesn't work - not a problem! You can either click it again, or she's easy to find on the MAB home page.)

This is "Treats?", a custom Proud Arabian Mare. This lovely girl, with her new stretched neck, is ready for the carrots to start flowing. And who could resist that face, with her little reaching lip? In addition to her new neck, mouth and nose, Treats? has also had some signifigant body overhauling, while keeping her overall Love-ness intact. Her fore and hind ends were cut apart and adjusted to match up appropriately, giving her a new barrel and shoulders in the process. Her legs were all cut and resculpted so she now stands level. She also has new feet, ears, and other little details. Her mane has been sculpted in a continental braid with reinforcements in the portions that hang free.

Treats? has been painted in a classic light dapple grey with darker grey mane and tail. She does have more dappling than is suggested in the photos. Treats? has subtly visible markings and all the details my work is known for including shaded chestnuts, detailed hooves, and lifelike eyes. Her braids are finished in a classy dark blue-grey.

Shipping is $30 including insurance in the US. International shipping will be actual price and quoted at the time of the auction ending. Sorry, I will not put a lower value on the package or mark as gift for international shipments.

Vanquisher Auction


Now on My Auction Barn! (Sometimes the link doesn't work - not a problem! You can either click it again, or he's easy to find on the MAB home page.) 

This is "Vanquisher", a custom on the Breyer Salinero. He is almost completely resculpted as an American Saddlebred stallion in a show stretch, loaded with little tidbits like fully detailed braids, and shoes with toe clips and pads. There really isn't much on this horse that went untouched; I think his eyes, cheeks and some parts of his front legs are all that's left of the original mold, so he's truly a unique fellow!

Vanquisher has been painted in a deep, rich brown with tobiano and sabino. His markings are delicately mapped with individual hair detail as are his mane and tail. He has all the details my work is known for including shaded chestnuts, detailed hooves, and lifelike eyes. His braids are finished in traditional red and white.

Shipping is $30 including insurance in the US. International shipping will be actual price and quoted at the time of the auction ending. Sorry, I will not put a lower value on the package or mark as gift for international shipments.
