If Stormys were made of chocolate...


(click the image to enlarge)


This one would be Moonstruck! That's one of the tastiest chocolates in the world, and this Stormwatch is an incredibly tasty, rich, deep and delightful guy. He took a total of eight firings, and several weeks to complete... and he challenged my new china painting skills, but he's done! He was custom made, step by step, overseen by his new owner and will be on his way on Monday.

Several people have asked whether I will show the full photos of these Stormys, instead of just bits and pieces. Well, maybe later... but for now, it is the right of the new owner to show them off, or not to. Every new owner has received a set of photos that she can use to show her horses (if anyone needs them again, or in a different format, let me know!) All of the photos are also being kept in a file, using the horse's final name, so that I can keep track of what was done, who received it, and what the horses name was when it left here.

The next Stormy will be going up to auction, and I will be splitting the final auction price with Sarah Minkiewicz-Breunig... (sssssshhhh she doesn't know this yet....) I have a couple of colors in mind, but if you would like to see a particular color on a ceramic Stormy, send it along. I'm always looking for ideas!!

Grulla or Sooty Buckskin Tobiano! I'm shooting myself in the foot here because I know I'll never be able to afford a clinky one, but its still nice to look...

Thank you, Grace! Those are both good ideas!

Oh he is beautiful Joanie, as were the snippets you showed of the other two Stormies. Even just seeing the head shots makes my heart ache, I think seeing him in all his glory would move me to tears.

My vote is for a blood bay overo with sunburnt tips in the mane/tail

Hi Liz! Thank you for the compliment! I can post his whole photo now, since the owner has shown him off (laughing)I deleted your second comment because it was a duplicate... not sure how that happened!
