Mulligans Wild (Custom Breyer Stablemate Thoroughbred)

Mulligan was painted to help round out the thoroughbred gallery and is a nice basic dark bay without any white markings. He’s been very minorly resculpted to add male bits and forelock, or (more accurately) a male bump and a forelock. Equine sex changes are a little more complicated that I had anticipated.

Interestingly he is the only bay thoroughbred that I painted other than Sakes Alive. I remember trying to get one of each basic color and pattern painted for each mold, but I could have sworn I did more bay TBs… ah well, something to fix going forward!

The shading is a little rough, but I’m not quite sure where in the timeline I painted this little guy. I’m figuring he was an earlier custom because of the paint job, but it will be interesting to see where he falls in the continuum.
