About Me

My Photo
My name is Lindsay Diamond. I have been collecting Breyer Model Horses since I was 10. I have recently started showing and starting making my own tack. I am also learning how to customize my horses using pastels, pigments and acrylic paints.

VAF Bombs Away

On the tail end of Jennifer's guest posts about harness racing, I wanted to share my pictures of VAF Bombs Away, the new Rocket resin from Kitty Cantrell.  While she didn't end up with the best paint job, I am proud of the harness and how it came together.  I will be adding a few things to it, include a "closed" bridle, aka, adding blinders, and also figuring out the head number.  I ran out of time before the show to get one completed.

I really should get myself back on here!  *hides*

So, since the last check-in......well, a lot!  I have several tack pieces either in the works or in the brain.  I have a western saddle near completion.  I am going to be starting a draft driving bridle for Wixom.  I also want to start a new huntseat set to work with my CM Palouse.

Custom-wise, I have a CM Wixom nearing completion!  She is a fun black and white pinto.  Her black is nearly done, then it's time to clean up the whites and define the edges.  

I have managed to acquire several resins as well!  My first resin was Messenger from Shauna at Epic Fail Studios.  He is a neat little guy with huge wings!  Next was a mini Scarlett I purchased in November at a show.  Then the Breyer Do It Yourself resin who needs to have the grooves filled in.  Then a Mindy.  Three medallions.  And Brio.  <3  Brio Sombra is a beautiful trad resin from Sheila Bishop, and my first traditional size resin.  I can't wait to get started on him!  I want to work on plastics before I get to him though.  Don't want to mess him up!

And to props - I've been making cones for performance!!  They are always available for sale - just email me or comment!  I also have a few jumps in progress, but I'm stuck on how to assemble them that look right.  Something isn't quite "right".

Pictures to come when there's some daylight.  And my desk is cleared off.

Wow, I kinda sucked at this blog over the last few months!!  

My excuses:

  • Barn - doing a lot of riding and almost got to show in October!
  • Studio projects - just didn't get a lot of pictures!  But I'll get some of those soon.
  • Model shows - went to two at the beginning of November and did pretty darn good!!
So....I'll get back to this!!  Santana has ears, new eyes and needs to get a new coat of primer after I messed him up trying in vain to get him done for a show.  

Also, my pacer has a new mane!  Her tail needs to be made tack-friendly, so I can get a crupper under her tail.  Then it will allow me to start coloring her and making a harness.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  Picture updates coming soon!  I think my bread in the oven is done!  =)

New Website

I have finally gotten a website set up for the announcing I do for horse shows.  Yay!


My logo was designed by Creations by Mit, by Michele Katz.  She's wonderful!!

I love it!  Let me know what you think!

Hartland Find?

I don't know much about Hartland horses, but I saw this guy in an ad for garage sales, and I picked him up today.  I think he's pretty cool for my first Hartland.  =)

A Complete Conga!!

I have finally gotten the final fjord I was looking for to complete my Fjord conga.  Granted, I don't have the WEG fjord, but that's a run of, what, 16?  We'll consider that out of my reach and this is complete!!

I loves my ponies!!
