Stoned Donkeys

No, I'm not letting the herd play with mind altering substances.  They get in enough trouble as is.

I'm talking about this kind of Stoned Donkey....

The nights are looonng, dark and cold this time of year, especially for someone who works late into the night and sleeps late into the morning.  I could do mature, adult things like mop the floor or read boring CEU articles for my job, but there is only so much adulting one person can do in a given lifetime. 

I know you are probably thinking that I should get my act together and write some more blog post. You are right.  Totally right.  But when the words aren't there, they just aren't there.  I do seem to need some kind of creative outlet though and the lost blog words had to show up somewhere.  Lately, they have turned into rocks and glue.

All the farrier work I've done in the past few years with glue-on shoes, casts, epoxy, etc. got me interested in some other things that can be done with those materials.  So, I have been making Stoned Donkeys cast in epoxy resin...

They are hard to get good pictures of as the resin is like trying to photograph glass.




There are also some Stoned Ponies...mixed with tree tips, thorns, bark, etc...


 And maybe some other stuff.....eventually.
