2019 Feather Fund Donation

Right before Breyerfest I finished painting my Feather Fund donation. Every year at Pony Penning, The Feather Fund buys a pony for the winner of their annual essay contest. Sometimes more than one kid wins and is given a pony. During Pony Penning Week, The Feather Fund has a model horse auction to fund the buying of the ponies. This year I was only able to do one model.
It's painted to look like *my* buyback foal, Surfer's Blue Moon.
I'm happy with her and I can't wait to see which ponies go home with the winners this year! If you're interested in donating to this--the whole premise is to paint a model horse to resemble one of the Chincoteague Ponies on Assateague, past or present. Surfer Dude died a few years ago and there are still models being painted to look like him. The donations for this year's auction is closed, but it's never too early to start on next year!
