Below are some of the animals I've sculpted over the years - I've done scale animals, life-size animals, and also brooches and medallions. The natural world provides some fascinating subjects - I'm currently sculpting a range of models based on animals approaching extinction; there's a depressingly large number to choose from.
1/56th (28mm) Arab / Akhal Teke type horse dollies sculpted for Immortal Miniatures.
This Donkey foal is a Stablemate scale model sculpted for Horsing Around.
Here are some 1/100th scale animals for Scotia Grendel's Xyston range. The pig at the bottom is on fire; don't ask!

Next is Spaniard, a galloping Andalusian.
This is Azarax, meaning 'Son of Fire', the Byerley Turk.
Next is Window, a close-up view of a horse's eye. I did this one just to see what finishwork people would come up with, and to my delight, there are some really beautifully painted examples around now.
This is Family, an Arab mare and foal having breakfast together.
