Since my last post from summer, I created another 4 horses and two medallions! While 2020 hasn't been very kind, at least in the model horse department I think 2020 was the year I made the most amount of model horses ever.

A couple weeks ago, I asked my Instagram followers what sort of tutorials they would like to see from me. Video tutorials won the majority for preferred format, so I figured it was time to actually do something with that channel I set up a while ago.

That video is live now.
