Redman the Horse Room Guardian by AnyaBoz Redman the Horse Room Guardian by AnyaBoz
Redman was a pet portrait gift to a family friend for helping me with my finances. The original Redman passed away, but his protection will live on through this room guardian. 

This is the first time I have made a horse room guardian actually. It presented its fair share of challenges, that fur was so hard to get right! But I am very happy with the outcome. I think he looks like a younger version of the real horse. He has a rose quartz heart and the owner actually gave me a piece of his tail to use for the room guardian's tail.

Room Guardians are small creatures that protect one's home from negative spirits and energies. These friends can be easily placed on window sills, kitchen shelves, dressers, or wherever to keep watch over the room. Each guardian has a soft faux fur coat and each is individually sculpted from the wire frame to the clay face and hands, so no two are alike. The room guardians' arms, tails, and necks are bendable and Inside each of their chests is a unique crystal heart to give each one a different energy. These little guys have a lot of character and they love having a home to watch over.

 1. How did you come up with the room guardian concept?
 The idea caught fire when a friend and I were walking through an antique store. On one of the bookshelves sat two stuffed foxes wearing riding clothes. I contemplated buying them because one could convince themselves that their expressionless stares were actually seeing and watching over the room. It was as if they were alive though they were a long way from being realistic. My contemplation came to an end when I realized I could spend less money and have a better one if I just made it myself. That is where

Ahhh thank you! That color took me a long time to get right haha. I tried to
dye a short white fur the right color and it came out too pink. Then I tried putting
oranges on this brown fur I had. The color was right but the fur was too long, so 
I had to take another trip to the store and get short brown fabric that finally did
the trick. It was rough, but I did it! 

And you be quiet about that vocabulary of yours. Just ask me to say something in 
Swedish and you will feel much better hahaha.

Oh wow! I can't wait to see what you do! Yeah I'm not used to horse anatomy and
that fur took forever to get the right color so I don't blame you for choosing a different
color if you did hahaha. I'm happy I pulled it off though! Thank you!:hug:

Jeez thank you! I am so happy you think so. Horse anatomy is much more foreign
to me than the usual canine and feline anatomy.
