    McLovey the pony. Glass art fascinates me, and I love the detail in this wee lil guy.

  9. I don't know that I have an out and out favorite, there are SO MANY wonderful artworks!!!! But, I love the raku guardian horse vase by raku4u. Again, good work all of you, for the beautiful art!

  10. It was painfully hard to choose! Early Morning Blues is really powerful, however. I can actually feel the chill in the air, and the wet forest, silent except for the wooshing gust of Phantom's breath, the lingering drips of an earlier shower falling from the branches, and an early songbird or two.

  11. lovely prize my favorite item is the Blue Mare - Original Horse Art Pendant Necklace

  12. I love so much. It is all lovely. I think one of my most fave pieces in the shop is Tobiano Paint Horse Lampwork Focal Pendant by dianadear because I own Paints. There are so many lovely items from all of the artists. I think my fave of the prizes is "Bunny Ears" because it looks so much like my gelding, Jack when he was just a foal. I do love them all though.

  13. It is so wonderful to see all of the artists going together to promote each other, you all do beautiful work! I hope that I have a chance at winning one of your beautiful giveaways!! thank you all for the oportunity.

  14. Didn't get too far before I fell in love with Diana Dear's Ghost Horse pendant.

  15. Night Mare - Original Hand Painted Wild Black Horse Pendant Necklace
    by gypsymarestudios

    I Love the Black of the horse...lil' girl in me invisions "Black Beauty" and something really silly..."Ichabod Crane" running away from my favorite childrens story bad guy, "The Headless Horseman". I have always loved a black horse. The Black of any animal amazes my eyes with the change in softness, tones, like a mother of pearl. I always ask myself what is a true black. Ok rambling....Toodles


    Sonia ;)

  16. Too many lovely choices! I'd have to say the bracelet by Five O'Clock Somewhere, called the Tally Ho Equestrian Bracelet. My first horeses' name was Tally Ho, so it's extra special to me.

    And I LOVE the gypsymarestudios black horse necklace prize, I'm a black horse fan, too!

  17. I love all things horses :) Extremely hard to narrow it down. But I really like the piece...

    ACEO Warrior Horse Mini Print 1\/25
    by shadowhorsestudios

    Just love the red that surrounds the horse. And the detail on the armor is amazing.

  18. Please please please enter me. I love WHOA team, you guys are amazing. I couldn't POSSIBLY choose one item from your stuff! I'll pick 3. Is that ok?

    I adore the horse charm cuff bracelet by purplecr2
    The horse's eye by artbyakiko is absolutely breathtaking (I couldn't believe it was a painting from the thumbnail)
    the Sunlit Bay painting is gorgeous too.

    I could pick 50 (and in fact I pick them all the time to add to my favorites box on my blog)

    Thanks, I'm so excited!

  19. WoW! So many talented artists and so little money! I had the toughest time choosing! I finally settled on "Seeing Spots" That picture and horse just spoke to me.
    My email is
    Thank you!

  20. I love the RUNNING HORSE Necklace by HeartofaCowgirl!

  23. Pick a favorite? This is so not fair!!! How do I pick a single favorite, you've tasked me, you have tasked me!!!! Ok, drama over.....

    Seriously, I was blown away by the selection, and I looked through ALL 34 pages of listings! I've picked this piece as one (of many) that speaks to me: Gotta Dance watercolor yupo painting by WabibrookStudio.

    There I did it, only because I was enticed by the fantastic "carrots" dangled before me....

  24. This is hard, very very hard!! I think I'm going to pick Grey Arabian framed 6 x 8 canvas board by Carol because it reminds me of Bill (real name Faseem) who was beautiful to watch, gentle, sweet, and is now gone from this world.

  25. Great idea to have a contest. The items are absolutely beautiful. Count me in :)

  26. Too many favorites! So today I will choose Lascaux Horse Raku Pot, by Raku4u. The give aways are gorgeous too!

    My favorite item is the "Windblown - Wild Horse - Signed 5x7 Fine Art Photograph, listing #15189912"! It is simply stunning!

    Thank you and Have a great day!

  29. Whoa is right! I had no idea there were so many talented equine artists on etsy. It was very difficult to choose a favorite but because I am such a huge fan of lampwork beads and glass, I chose the Buckskin pendant made by dianadear:
    You can reach me at
    Fabulous blog - I look forward to checking back frequently to see what else gets posted. All the best to all of the artists!

  30. So hard to choose one since all the Whoa artists and their works are amazing!
    I really do love Linda Shantz's style though "Nobility Without Conceit" is a fave because her two horses have the kindest eyes. Here is the link for the listing:

  31. Difficult choive! I choose Vintage Photo Western Horse Necklace it's so pretty! Thanks for the chance!


  32. The "Love" necklace is my fave:


    The Black Fresian/Andualusian in 6 x 8 Vintage gold tone wood Frame is such a stunning and magnificient piece. Such a wonderful painting that left me in total awe.

  42. OMG! Jackpot! What a great collection of horse stuff, I will have to for sure check back in and keep looking at everyone's great items when I have more time. Thank you Whoa Horse Art Team, well done. Of course I can't pick one favorite item and you know Jen, your horse work is always top on my list, but I really do like the pendants that KDemARTe has with the horse running and the two horse heads touching in that heart shape and the little horseshoes. Cute and very affordable!

  53. Hi Jennifer! Your Nightmare pendant is my fave, though I love them all :~). ~Kitty

  54. For some reason this blog was not accepting commments last night so I am adding one sent to my blog from Linda @ Beautiful Mustang:

    You know, I can't add comments at the Whoa ARt Team blog. Are people still having trouble with it? I'm going to post my comment here since one of the pieces I mentioned is your buckskin pendant!

    Gypsy Mare's Buckskin pendant (reminds me of my horse--love it) and Lucy Calhoun's, Wyoming Summer, to name two, but there are many more I named in my last posts--but lost them. Kudos to all of the artists here and the beautiful equestrian pieces you are producing! Thank you

  55. Thank you, Jennifer--and I'm on a new computer now which seems to be able to post for some reason! I do love many of the jewelry pieces and work by Artwolf, too--the little colt and red bird for one--which I would love to have as stationary.

    I think it's great what you're all doing here.

  56. I have a lot of favorites! Here's one of my favorites from this very talented team:

    This horse seems so lifelike!
