~*Rozo to Ozoro*~

For The Love Of Details!

Recently I was contacted by the owner of Rozo to let me know how much she enjoyed showing this custom so much so she obtained Ozoro into her home.  I was thrilled to hear of thier whereabouts and what Rozo and Ozoro have been up to!  After all a person can get emotionally attached to their artwork when you spend 40 plus hours into details {me}.  Thank You for keeping in touch, I love it.

From the will known Rozo

To Ozoro's new start

The ideas for Ozoro were drawn out.

Plans are thought out from real horse movement reference photos.

The before body..

New Neck, re-worked 3 legs, tail, face...the stance moves different. 

Fetlock re-worked, sturdy with thick metal pin.

The underside was reconstructed to a more realistic structure.

~**Pasture Pets**~

~**Charmed Duo**~

One of the fondest moments to witness is the friendship between pasture pets and this Charmed Duo is a beautiful example of just that love.
Once a year for the past handful of years I have enjoyed creating playful companion duo's and at times was enamored to work with painting artists as Karen Zorn & Mindy Berg.   This Charmed Duo has so many possibilities!

The Charmed Duo started as a Breyer PP running clyde customized by Rikki Lyman (Art by Rikki / Strutt'n Steed Studio).  Complete top to bottom front to back customization!  The shoulder, head, neck, mane and tail are artist original.  Details include frogs, bulbs, gelding parts, more muscling, skin wrinkles, chestnuts, inner lip curves, teeth, tongue, soft friendly eyes that include lashes.....  In addition to insure longevity of your art investment the flowing tail has been reinforced with metal rods and wire, swish swish!  The Kitty is totally original, OOAK!  The prepping and priming has been done meticulously!  Ready for you or your favorite finishing artist.  If you need a recommend I maybe able to help :0)

Thanks for looking!  Please Spread the Love <word*
Many Kind Thanks~ Rikki
