|Molly with her horse My Dun Cruiser (Kid)
I met Molly Pengra of MP3 Model Horses and Tack around 2007 when I was holding American Heartland Live Show in Platte City, Missouri.
It was a pretty instant friendship and we have had a lot of fun times since then.
She is one of those hobby artists that does amazing work that has won several NAN cards, but she seems to be on the fringe of the hobby. Her books just recently closed, not due to hobby people filling them up, but real horse owners that want portraits of their horses.
Molly works in pastels, pencils and acrylics and does a fantastic job in all colors. She has also made tack. Many of her pieces have NAN qualified for their owners as well as top ten'd at NAN.

She has held virtual meet ups through most of the summer of 2020 to get hobby people working on models and communing with each other because there aren't any live shows to attend right now. They are always fun as the hobbyists that join share painting ideas and help each other out.
I have a few models and tack my Molly. Her attention to detail is amazing.
