Introducing Supernova!

Supernova is a traditional-scale Arabian stallion. Playful and powerful, this handsome boy tosses his head as he pushes forward from his strong hind end. He stretches his upper lip to his right while allowing his lower lip to flop loose?though he is spirited, he is not stressed or aggressive!

Supernova is detailed from the delicate whisker bumps on his muzzle to the ergots on his fetlocks. He has veins on the backs of his ears as well as on his face, body and legs. His soft-looking lips expose his bottom teeth and gums, while wrinkles and stretching and buckling show off the thin skin and fine hair coat of the Arabian. Underneath this ?skin? he possesses correct anatomy and conformation?nothing was skimped on! He is typey, but not extreme or exaggerated.

Nova measures approximately 13.5" long by 7.5" tall and 4" wide.

Supernova is now sold out!

I'd like to give a special thanks to Sarah Minkiewicz-Breunig for her in-depth and insightful critique of Supernova. Also due thanks are Morgen Kilbourn for her helpful comments, Lesli Kathman for helping me finally sort out his lips, Carra McClelland for the use of hundreds of reference photos of her horse, and Alana Warshaw for providing me with the initial inspiration for this piece, as well as everyone else who has offered comments and support!
