This week, on instagram I did a few days of intense posting around the thema "Sunset"!
Sunset is one of my favorite part of the day, not only I am a night owl but also because it carries the most wonderful colours! And playing with colours, it's my job!

Sunset lights, always there to amaze you...

I'm always chasing sunset colors, as I love them, and feeled like I didn't have a lot of them... but that's not true...

 -the LIGHT the MARE and the HEAVY (2017) - French Alps, France.

-HELIUM SUNSET (2018) - Giens peninsula, France.

-STARRY SKY (2019) - France. 

-MIDNIGHT RIDE (2019) - Selonnet, France.

-BIG BIG SKY (2020) - Blanche's mountain pass, France.  

-ANNE - Breathe the Wild (2021) - Selonnet, France.

-ANNE - Snow of Birds (2021) - Orient Lake, France.

-AISLING - Rain Of Leaves (2021) - Orient Lake, France.

-LATE SUCCESS (2020) - Selonnet, France.

Well that deserved a bit more...

I guess it shows that I'm always more "in" to goes for a walk at the end of the day...

Wich one do you like best? Would you like to see more Sunset?
Will do another recap on another thema next month for sure!

Meet the Collector

In march, I've decided to do the "meet the maker" #
It led me to write more about who I am as a collector and how I collect.

As a little girl, I already collected everything horse shaped. Thrift shopping and flea market were on our family habits, so really, I had a lot of thrifted from everywhere "horse shaped thing". My favorites beeing Barbie horses, Grand Champion and My Little Ponies.

When I discovered breyer, thanks to @ladyorcanie it was a whole new world opening to my obsession... and I quickly became more and more invested and picky in my collection.

The way that you can play with thoses miniatures is really close to my child way to play, where every horse has a stable and paddock and that I taked care of my whole cavalry every day - like if I had real horses. Now I try to fool people with the most realistic and stunning pictures I can do.

I also met a lot of my actual best friends via modelhorse and for that, I am really thankfull.

Amira, my mare's portrait.

When I started collecting, it was pretty obvious to me that I'll need strict guidelines in my collection to make it work without scatter.
So I decided to only collect my favorite color: spotted (appaloosa). And to stick to it!

My collection purpose is to gather all the appaloosa pattern in the wider range of possible colors (coat), including the particularities of the gene. Also to have a large pannel of each breed that can sport the spotted colour.
It's simple goal but a very challenging one and I love it.

As a true spotted horse enthousiast, I am also collecting every appaloosa toy I can found. And am happy to count real spotted horses into my family!

Pumpkin, one of my favorite.

It is obvious that I prefer customs over OF... for a very simple reason: I love how every artist express itself in a painting.
I really do cares a lot about an artist's vision and expression even when it comes to "reproduce" real horses coat. If what it's searched (realism) is the same, the way of archieving it is really different from a finishwork artist to another.
That's why my collection include a large range of different painters, I want it to reflect variety.

And it's the same idea that I love regarding the sculpting part of the hobby.

Combining the right pattern with the right color on the right sculpture, and found the perfect one painter that will makes it a win...
Is a real joy and an important part of my work as collector.

All my horses are listed under the tag CAVALRY, with info on their breed, colour, painter & sculptor... everything you may want to know! (I have precise stats on my collection).

My dear Darjeeling <3

I know this blog is really focused on horses... but can we say that "horses" are my favorite animals?

Well in fact... my real spirit animal is cat.
Horse have a special aura, I've always been obsessed with them... and probably always will be.
Drawing horses always been an evidence for me.
Collecting horses figures always been priority over others material things.
Having my own horse always been my ultimate dream.
But to tell the truth, I probably just fit better with cats :')

The view

This is probably the view you see the most in my modelhorse pictures...

Thoses specifics mountains are hosting the most important place in my small village, they carry the Chabanon Ski Resort, wich is the biggest attraction and generate a living for most of the citizens in winter.

I really don't care about ski, despite, I love to see thoses mountains, they are always white in winter and you can see their light when they illuminate it by night for the specialty of Chabanon Ski Resort, the nocturnal ski ("come to ski under the stars" is the motto).

We have a very pure sky and you can see the stars, that's true!

This year I found a job on that Ski Station, and even if I don't ski, I am selling ski classes all day long. That's not an easy job, that's not a job I can say I love, but it's a job that pay the bills.
I've never though that one day, that mountain will be more for me than just the "beautiful view" from my house...

This year, for almost every day of the winter, I've been on this mountain, and I thinks about all the pictures I have of it, how much I love snow and also, how much everyone got me annoyed by the "luxury" of horse riding when, really, the real luxury sport out there is ski! (ski is expensive, you have no idea if you don't ski).


Did you have ever noticed how current this mountain is in my pictures? You can found plenty more of this view on this blog :')
